1336023381_1(31).jpg.97b405d789add1b152f78ab85598309e.jpg

866607184_1(30).jpg.d4ebb66d35f7afc9859291fa6fe35028.jpg

Im driving Im driving!

230812794_1(29).jpg.87ae5ccc2392f511ec0711e41c76d700.jpg

So yeah.... The place is kinda ghetto

1399602637_1(28).jpg.9a768fd6b926a94ff108d567bd3d01ca.jpg

And free bumper boats

720498093_1(27).jpg.3d35e83affdf6220a597a24a120a0e45.jpg

Free gokarts.. Wooo

684472150_1(26).jpg.5991d34a527cfdde45435b1667baeff0.jpg

Yup.. Funtown.

1776361878_1(25).jpg.77f76147c8ee218f9cf572a686492436.jpg

Funtowns logflume.

762343135_1(24).jpg.74580919757b70baa4e772e326590467.jpg

Anyways.. The ride got retracked last year and I hadnt been on it in 2 years.. So it was running good.. But its still not an amazing ride.

1875661781_1(23).jpg.ec47aeceb81908b1db6bfb493c911e8b.jpg

Its sad.... When the park did a PR for Excal they kept talking about how a CCI coaster (Raven) at a park about the same size as Funtown (Holiday World) put them on the map.. And that the same would happen to Funtown with Excal.. But it didnt happen..

1613520413_1(22).jpg.1d0dd15598c470420c0adbd918b63377.jpg

Oh yeah.. And they have a CCI in the back.

685814458_1(21).jpg.cc18ed66fc9cf9996beaf1a12bf63359.jpg

WORLDS LARGEST DIPPIN DOTS STAND!

578686788_1(20).jpg.743f8ffe562d6ae9db81ca8f92cb52c8.jpg

Unlike the one at Rye.. This indoor scrambler isnt a killer.

1777049661_1(19).jpg.7309e263eaf25460f893c893230d983a.jpg

Yup...

1588622993_1(18).jpg.54aacc9fdf748075337bc11a067ca0ef.jpg

Yeah.. So like.. Is anyone going to miss it when its gone? (Its for sale.. And the park has said they wanted to replace it with a mouse)

13491821_1(17).jpg.16dcba6eb0c1ecf2a3affcad928b86f6.jpg

Aww... How cute... (and both are straight)

1332098808_1(10).jpg.9ae202f5a207a30a06febfc1b44923e6.jpg

765833712_1(9).jpg.da6c40052ac0d6016e46201685eeecf5.jpg

1849342930_1(5).jpg.5e1bb57cf3948f0ea851598bc6d830c1.jpg

Hmm.. Kinda odd they had leftover slide parts.. Yet the slide was open.

1472104405_1(4).jpg.c162b66b3d3fd3321bcf8a7822844c76.jpg

Yup.. New slides.

Wow.. A Tornado

2032017800_1(2).jpg.a556381a3a801e82f0739fee7dbb9a4d.jpg

Funtown replaced its old minigolf area with 2 new waterslides in 2007.

1758851769_1(1).jpg.84845f042b98f37fb3851d27313a83ba.jpg

I saw the Powersurge got tamed... Back in 2004 it ran a great cycle.

739865404_1(42).jpg.7899c17c056e20bcb877d008f5225ad6.jpg

Started off bad.. But once it got to full speed it was great.. Just needs a longer cycle.

395625124_1(98).jpg.a2cc92f9556185bee852617144b3870b.jpg

To waste time before it got dark.. We rode the S&S swing.. And it broke.

875521304_1(97).jpg.df5d0161186757b1759aaf6a9da165f5.jpg

With SFNEs wheel gone.. LCs is now the tallest in New England.

1199123086_1(96).jpg.b485aa4c04dd3e3136ab432ba36483dd.jpg

Damn.. Wildcat STILL sucks.. I dont know why I still give it a chance every time I go to the park.

1196086371_1(95).jpg.e34e322258b525ad700e1bdb7faf0e3b.jpg

1145945656_1(88).jpg.3545d89d2fdf54540d78889f4184f7da.jpg

With off and on thunderstorms we took the trolley back down to see if the SkyRide would be open.

1050179778_1(87).jpg.6a66f95497dcb32845023206ca146491.jpg

Everyone needs to get to Lake Compounce right now and ride it.. Its running better than it ever has.. Such an amazing ride.. And it just gets better at night.

743842815_1(86).jpg.61fa761fce22650dc3135d932e790cad.jpg

Hmm.. With the skyride closed.. And downtime closed.... I guess we just have to ride Dash. :D

So we got to the park for its starlight deal.. Where we met up with Moose/Jon... And the first ride we went to was Downtime!

I guess you just rode Wildcat in the wrong seat. The second to last seat is pretty good. Granted it is not as good as Boulderdash, but it is practically painless, compared to the far back row, which hurt like crazy. You just have to know what row is the best.

Pssh, you can't say Funtown is ghetto, especially with the dump down the road . Yeah, Dragon's Descent is amazing, best tower ride out of the 4 I've been on and Excalibur is awesome, the best coaster I've been on.

I hope the Galaxi gets sold, its a Shite ride thats rusted and not safe looking, it needs to die.

 

Glad to see the Cannonball got some new lights, it looks incredible at night, and so does the Frisbee. I still can't believe I still havn't taken a trip to Canobie this year.

 

Nice pictures of the "other" parks in New England, by the way.

You took some lovely shots, Wish I could go to the "Lake" and SFNE".

 

The lights on Yankee Cannonball seem to change rather quickly from colour to colour. If the program was slowed down it would make the lights be like a mini MF.

Thats what I was thinking. I like the way the lights look. But they need to slow them down a bit. Or run 2 or 3 different light cycles.

It was good to see some photos of these parks as I haven't seen that much of them (apart from SFNE). Many really good photos, funny captions all in all great TR! Also the lights on Yankee Cannonball look really nice in the night.
