Breaking off from the new coaster talk briefly, has anybody else ridden Boulder Dash this season? Is it really as bad as CPmillenia94 was saying?

 

I rode in early August last year and while the ride was a bit rough I didn't find it painful or even uncomfortable really. I'm bringing some friends to LC in a few weeks and I'm really hoping that the ride hasn't taken that big a step back!

 

I rode Boulder Dash this summer and it was amazing. Wasn't rough or painful in any way. My mom, who went with me, normally can't tolerate wooden coasters (somehow they hurt her head). Boulder Dash was an exception in this case along with El Toro. Great ride though. Definitely top ten material!

Because Lake Compounce already got rid of everything else...

I wish the park could revert back to 2016 since that was basically the last year everything was right. Since then we have had: The botched Wildcat remodel, the Sky Ride removal, Boulder crash, removal

I don't mind if they go with one train most days, but it was frustrating on busy Saturdays when the ride's queue stretched back to the midway and was an hour. I almost saw the ride run two trains

From the Bristol Press:

 

Lake Compounce plans Friday to announce "the single largest investment" the nation's oldest amusement park has ever made.

 

So hyped for tomorrow! Look for updates around 10am.

 

This has awesome written all over it. I can't wait, the possibilities are very wide.

Well Boulder Dash was only 6 million so we know it will be more expensive than that.

 

What price do Euro-Fighters generally go for? One of those makes sense for this park, I was even thinking a launch coaster from Gerstlauer along the lines of Anubis: The Ride and Lynet.

A premier terrain launcher that goes up into the woods like Boulder Dash (but far enough away that you can't see it when riding BD, so both rides are isolated). How awesome would that be?

Hoping for more than a sky loop! A Sky Rocket type ride would be great for the park.

 

Agreed. I'd love to see more coasters like Sky Rocket.

Premier teased an announcement on their facebook page this morning, the post said hint was Nutmeg, not sure what that clue means but we'll see. It's about time that park got something to go along with Boulder Dash.

 

^Whoops, didn't see the post on the previous page. Although I am still curious what the Nutmeg clue means?

 

Sounds like it's more similar to Full Throttle than Sky Rocket or the Superman clones, should be exciting!

 

(edit) nevermind, looks like another Skyloop, so there's that.

That sounds really compelling and creative. I'm most interested in how the claustrophobia part will work - I love coasters that dive in and out of buildings.

 

This, boulderdash, and the classic woodie make Lake Compounce a pretty decent destination for enthusiasts in 2016.

Not even knowing all the details yet this looks like a great addition to the park. Never been here, but with Boulder Dash and now a Premiere launcher this place is on the map for must visits next year!

A nickname for Connecticut is "The Nutmeg State".

 

And I was hoping for "Egg Nog: The Ride."

Perhaps an Egg Nog Challenge on the next TPR event?
