Wooden Warrior Update

Quassy Amusement Park has sent out some photos of their new wooden coaster under construction.  The ride is looking great already!  Here are the photos along with the park's descriptions.

Construction workers today on the last turn and brake run on the “Wooden Warrior,” the new roller coaster being constructed at Quassy Amusement park, Middlebury, Conn. The “Wooden Warrior” is the only new wooden roller coaster being constructed in the U.S. for the 2011 season.

In the foreground is the framework for the coaster station. Once the track is finished, the station building will be erected. Coaster designed by The Gravity Group of Cincinnati, Ohio.

The incline is seen background at right, and station in background left. Foreground shows the turn-around for the “Wooden Warrior” roller coaster. The “bents” will be going up on this part of the ride soon. The turn-around will include a tunnel to add more thrills to the coaster, which also crosses the park’s train tracks twice!
