Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Quassy Amusement Park, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Wow Quassy is the perfect setting for a family woodie like that. I will love this if it's anything like Sky Prin...err Kingdom Coaster at DuWo. Thanks for the shared info Robb!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

For a coaster that has the stats of a kiddy/family coaster, this design looks like a lot of fun. It reminds me of the Tree Topper coaster in that it can be enjoyed by pretty much anyone, and it is nice to see Gravity Group building a family friendly coaster compared to the large thrill coasters that they have previously built.


Off topic: If the new Santa's Village is successful, I can see a coaster similar to this open up within a few years.

Nice, finally a non-lethal adult coaster at Quassy, this looks like a fun addition to the park. A 1 hour park just became a 1.5 hour park.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Looks like a nice addition to this small park. But more importantly...

What type of trains will this coaster feature?!?!

Well, I'm sure a woodie of 1,200 feet and 35 feet tall will have 75MPH LIM launched, death-metal equipped audio, Timberliner trains!

Wow... A mini GG woodie...I was surprised by the size at first, but not, however disappointed. This looks like a perfect addition to a tiny family park like this. It's not fast, tall or really intimidating so kids and adults will not be hesitant to ride, but get all the amazing airtime and turns true coasters can offer.

^^Sounds good to me, will they be consulting Meteornotes on the song selection or just using one of those mix cd's he made that maybe a TPR tourist accidentally dropped while we were at Quassy?

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Love it!

Especially since this park seemed to have no rules or height restrictions and even would have let me put KidTums on the death mouse!!!

I have a feeling this could end up being one of KT's early woodies!
