The slides were initially intended for 2017 per their plan back in 2015. However, with the residents they have living nearby I'm not shocked it took an extra year to get everything approved and ready to go. They give them hell for any additon.

Yes Quassy has a very strict 35 foot height maximum. The bowl slide they added was much shorter than usual and I believe it was custom sized for the park. The mini funnel on a tantrum slide doesn't need too big of a drop preceding it so the height restriction shouldn't be an issue. The tantrum slides aren't quite as good as the full sized Tornadoes, but they're much better than your typical raft slide. The mini funnels are quite aggressive.

I visited Quassy this past summer, and it's still a great park. Wooden Warrior is still running great as well!

I'm starting a new job and for training I'm being sent to Hartford for all of next week. So if time allows, I thought I'd try to finally do Lake Compounce and Quassy, as well as a return trip to SFNE which I haven't been to since 2014.
That said, I've heard that the trains on Wooden Warrior may not be too accommodating for "guests of exceptional size" :Pr
Any truth to this?

^ I haven't seen too many larger riders trying to get on Wooden Warrior, but I have seen some on Mine Blower, which uses the same Timberliner trains. I think I've seen 1-2 people who were unable to ride. They don't seem to be much worse than a B&M clamshell, but maybe someone else can chime in?

I'm 6'3 tall, and had no problems if that helps. Wooden warriors restraints are the most comfortable I have ever experienced.

Cool, thanks.
I recently went to BGW and rode Apollo's Chariot so... I guess I'm okay?

ETA: Nice trip report on Quassy, btw

^ If you like crazy flat rides, it's also worth checking out Frantic and Reverse Time too.
