Quassy Amusement Park has come out on top in About.com's annual Reader's Choice Awards, with the Wooden Warrior taking the number one spot in the Best New Roller Coaster of 2011 category.
poll, which is in its 5th year, allows readers of About.com to select their favorites in many categories, including amusement parks and rides.
“We’re extremely delighted by this accolade,” said Quassy President Eric Anderson. “The ‘Wooden Warrior’ is an exceptional ride for its size and we’ve been told that time and again by our guests – including many coaster enthusiasts who have visited from throughout the world.”
The coaster was delivered by the Gravity Group, which has quickly become an acclaimed manufacturer of wooden coasters. The mid-sized Wooden Warrior was a perfect match for the scale of Quassy Amusement Park.
The Wooden Warrior gave an estimated 200,000 rides in its first season, and is one of the most popular attractions at the park.
Quassy Amusement Park will open for the 2012 season on April 28th. This year the Crazy Cups have been added, a twirling and spinning family tea cup ride.
