Lake Compounce Off Season Update #1
Lake Compounce in Bristol Connecticut is known for being the oldest amusement park in America; and in 2017 will be updating a classic coaster. We had the chance to go check out the park with ACE on 1/29/17. So lets jump on in. Wildcat is a Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters wooden coaster opened in 1927 and became a Ace landmark in 2008.
In 2017 Wildcat will receive some retracking from Martin & Vleminckx along with Brand New GCI Millennium flier trains.
But wait Martin & Vleminckx is not just improving Wildcat but they will also be retracking and reprofiling the award winning Boulder Dash. Yes you heard me right reprofiling. Recently Boulder Dash has become unbearably rough. Boulder Dash’s triple up element has entirely been removed and will receive a new double up element design by the famous Alan Schilke.
Work is also taking place to replace and improve the guns and technology on the park’s shooting dark ride Ghost Hunt.
Here are some photos of some of the rides that are under yearly maintenance siting still wait for you to enjoy them this summer.
Thank you to (ACE)America Coaster Enthusiasts and Jerry Brick and the team at Lake Compounce for inviting us out. Thanks for reading and remember to Ride On!
