Quassy Spinning Into 2012

There will be a new way for guests to get their spin on in 2012 at Quassy Amusement Park.  To celebrate the park's 104th operating season a brand new tea cup ride will arrive at the park from Italian manufacturer Zamperla.

The park had a fantastic season in 2011 with the debut of the Wooden Warrior coaster, leading in part to the expansion that will be seen next year. 

The new tea cup ride will feature six four-seater cups that will spin at eight revolutions per minute.  Guests will have the ability to spin the cups on their own, adding an extra thrill to the attraction.  When completed the park expects their ride to look very similar to this version:

The cups on the ride will feature similar bright paint jobs, adding much personality to the attraction.  The center will have a lighted center piece to add extra theming. 

The official name of the ride will be chosen through a "Name The Ride" contest, to start soon.  Watch the park's website for more details on the contest.
