2013 at Quassy Amusement Park

Print

On April 27th, Quassy Amusement Park in Middlebury, CT, will open for its 105th season.  Quassy is one of 11 remaining “trolley parks” in the United States today.  I have so many fond memories of visiting the park throughout my childhood and now I get to enjoy my own kids having a blast at the park. 

The 2013 season will bring some pretty cool changes and I can’t wait to check it out. One of the changes that I am the most excited about is the waterpark, it has doubled in size! My oldest son and I share a love for water rides.  He actually had his first waterpark experience at Quassy when he was 2 and has been hooked ever since.  I practically had to drag him out of the park!

The whole waterpark has been renamed to “Splash Away Bay” and they have added a “BulletBOWL” ® water raft ride and pair of “FreeFall” ® extreme bodyslides as well as a 2,000-square-foot Vortex Splashpad ®.

There will also be a parent-friendly area designated just for toddlers so it will be easy to keep an eye on your little ones while they play in attractions such as a rainbow spray tunnel, geysers and themed hands-on water play elements.

…and sticking with the laser theme, Quassy has added a new educational program to the curriculum this year, “Lasers 101.” It will be a 30-minute classroom session followed by a trip to the laser maze. How cool is that? In addition to the laser class, Quassy offers a ton of interactive learning with topics on physics, science, art, history and more.

I know I will definitely be taking a trip to Quassy this year with my family. Not only to check out their new attractions, but to revisit some of the classics like the Wooden Warrior (ranked number 23 against more than 150 other roller coasters!) and to take advantage of some of their special events like carload weekend (only $35 per carload!) or meet and greets with characters from favorite children’s books as part of Quassy’s Ready to Read program.
