Quassy has sent us a large update on construction of their newest addition, the Wooden Warrior!

 

The wild and fun turnaround on the new “Wooden Warrior” roller coaster at Quassy Amusement Park in Middlebury, Conn., is shown during this phase of construction on Saturday, Nov. 20, 2010 in photos 001, 002, 003, 006. The turnaround will be enclosed in a tunnel when completed. The sharp banking as the coaster dives into the turn will add more thrills before the train emerges for another drop and makes its way back to the station!

Look at the lift hill while the first drop starts to take shape.

Twisted! The lower track leaves the loading station before making its way up the incline, while the portion of framework shown above it will cross over not only the coaster, but also the park’s train ride.

I'm excited for this coaster. Haven't been to Quassy in eight years. And will this be the first new coaster in Connecticut for over 10 years?

 

If you want to get really obscure, no. But for all intents and purposes, yes. As I might be going to university in Connecticut, I am excited.

^ Remember - they are calling it a "Family" coaster rather than a "Kiddie." They used to mean roughly the same thing to me, but the more I go to parks with TPR, the more I learn the difference.

 

This looks like a lot of fun and I look forward to riding it next summer (bearing no problems with construction) on the North East tour!

I've never been on a thrilling woodie quite so short, but I've realized there's potential for a wide range of experiences when working with a shorter height. In the under-60' category, Pegasus is very tame, whereas Cornball Express and Coaster Thrill Ride are just as intense as any other woodie.

Quassy has sent us another construction update for the Wooden Warrior, this one showing off the season's first snowfall around the ride.

 

Work on the “Wooden Warrior” roller coaster at Quassy Amusement Park, Middlebury, Conn., continued Monday, Dec. 6, 2010, after the season’s first snowfall. The ride, designed by The Gravity Group of Cincinnati, Ohio, will open for the park’s 103rd season in 2011. The family ride will be the first wooden roller coaster to operate at Quassy and is part of a multi-year improvement plan. Funding for the coaster project provided by TD Bank.

Quassy has sent us a new photo showing off the great Winter progress made with the Wooden Warrior.

 

The wintry weather in Connecticut hasn’t stalled construction of the “Wooden Warrior,” Quassy Amusement Park’s new marquee roller coaster. The framework of the ride rises above the snow-covered landscape at the Middlebury park in this recent photo. The construction crew remains busy at the site and tracking and other work continues in preparation for the park’s spring opening. (Quassy photo)
