Ride Quassy's New Coaster!

Quassy Amusement Park has release the above new virtual ride on their 'coming soon' wooden coaster! The virtual ride, created by coaster designer The Gravity Group of Cincinnati, Ohio, is currently up and running for roller coaster and amusement park enthusiasts.

The video, with authentic coaster sounds, highlights the one-of-a-kind ride that will be constructed at Quassy. The wood-frame structure will have 1,200 feet of track and rise more than 30 feet above the old entrance road to the park. The coaster will drop nearly 40 feet as it descends into the field area behind the park’s “Grand Carousel.”

The coaster is one of three projects Quassy plans on installing over the next several years. The park has also received town approval to install a free fall drop tower as well as a “Bullet Bowl” water raft ride, which will be an addition to the popular “Saturation Station” waterpark.

A groundbreaking date for the ride has not been released yet.
