I'd just like to know the ups and downs of BD
Be polite and ignore the idiots. - rollergator
"It was like that when I got here."
"faster, cheaper, and more often" that's somebody's new sig -UpsideDawnGrrrl
Do the trip, and go to SFNE too. I hate the place, but S:ROS is about the greatest thing I have ridden!
- "I used to be in the audio/visual club, but I was kicked out because of my views on Vietnam........and I was stealing projectors" - Homer Simpson
For the record I thought BD blew away GR...
...and Peabody nailed it - visit SFNE while you're that close - S:ROS is...well, phenominal.
You could argue that it's a chance to hit the best wood and steel coasters in the US and not be totally out of line.
Boulderdash was fun, though. You didn't give any other considerations that you may, well, be considering. If it's a matter of "Are there any reasons I shouldn't go?"...no, there aren't any :)
Im the #1 Canobie Lake Park Fan!!!These are my top 3 coasters:
1. S:RoS @ SFNE 2. Yankee Cannonball 3. Cyclone/B:TDK
Twister and Phoenix at Knoebel's? Sorry. Wildcat at Hershey? Not. Beast and Son of Beast at PKI? Not even close. Raven and Legend at Holiday World? Ahhh, getting closer, but, still, nope. It ranks #1 on both my list and my wife's, though we haven't been on Ghostrider yet.
We had a great time at Lake Compounce, though it was during the darkest week in the park's history. The fatal accident had happened two days earlier and the boomerang coaster was still in its frozen position from stalling mid-loop the day before.
The only "caveat emptor" on Lake Compounce is that the park lacks that second killer coaster to complete the combo. Wildcat may prove to be life-altering but only due to its rickety shifting make-up.
Still, Boulderdash is worth the drive -- if anything to drive by ESPN.
Also, SFNE is usually crowded, so if you get there on opening, you should get several rides on Superman without too long a wait. By the way, Superman is awesome!

And is LC worth the trip from SFNE? Absolutely! If for no other reason then to see the differance between a good park with atmosphere (LC) and a sterile corperate park with a couple of great rides (SFNE).
Without the chaindog, you'd never get up the lifthill...
Boulderdash was the most over rated coaster I have ever ridden. Im not saying it was bad, It was a long, Fast breathtaking ride through the woods and even had a moment or two of good airtime. It did not however rank anywhere near my top ten based on the rides I recieved that day. Actually I liked the kinda rough and forcefully tossing around that Wildcat gave a little better.
Chuck, who must have caught BD on a bad day and actually got bad rides on Shiveriing Timbers his first time to MIA but Timbersfest more than made up for that :)
