Clipper Cove, the extension of the Splash Harbor water park at Lake Compounce that took the place of the historic carousel at the south end of the main midway, is nearly complete, but not yet ready. The 1911 carousel, in a new building, is operating in its new location between the Casino building and the bumper cars. Students and teachers made up nearly the entire crowd Thursday, which for the park was considered an education day.

This is one smart woman whom I agree whole-heartedly with:
"It’s a beautiful setting, much better than Six Flags," said Eheander, who said she lives about a mile from the Agawam, Mass. park.
Eheander said it was her first time visiting Lake Compounce.
"It’s so nice and really different from a big amusement park," she said.

Eventually, it's really going to start affecting Six Flags bottom line with all the negative comments. We talked to a couple at PKD who said they'd never go back to SFA because it was dirty and half the rides were closed last year. And once you've lost a customer, it's very hard to get them back.
If you have a problem with clones, the solution is real simple—Stop traveling.

Intamin Fan: I agree but also disagree. All it would take to get that couple back is some new ride that most parks dont have. Everyone has bad days at the parks but always come back.
Yeah my homepark is in Albany, NY but I always have 12 hours to go to The Point!

When I went to this in 7th grade it was the day the maintenance man died on Boulder Dash. We didn't know at the time and were wondering why there were news crews all over the place. Needless to say, Thunder Rapids and Boulder Dash were closed that day. However, the next day my friends from another class said it was open on their day. :(
