Do you guys know if I should go there, its a good 2 hour drive and I've never been there. How are the lines for the coasters? And how are the rides? Is the park crowded? Thanks!

Yes I think It is, just dont expect a SF. But do expect short waits. Boulder Dash is DEFINETLY worth it.

Yeah, I think this park is worth it. I went there in August instead of Six Flags New England( mainly because Superman was closed). I went on a saturday and the crowds weren't bad at all. The only area with a congest of people was near the Water Park and the restaurant with all the porches. The lines were all short, Wilcat was a walk on, Zoomerang was about 3 minutes, and Boulder Dash was about 10-15 minutes of waiting. But if you get to the park when it first opens, you won't have to wait at all really. The park has an okay assortment of other rides. They have a river rapids ride, an interactive haunted house, ferris wheel, a top spin(gravitron), a swinging ship, a log flume, sky coaster, ferry boat, trolley, a sky ride, and a ride where you spin and stick to the walls and the floor gets taken away. There might be more that I might be forgetting. Don't do the skycoaster, it is very overpriced(I did it at Carowinds for $12 and Lake Compounce charges $30 or so). Boulder Dash has amazing air! I loved every part of it! My only complaint was that the first drop is very effective. You don't lose your stomach or anything but the scenery is great. The sky ride was my 2nd favorite ride(after Boulder Dash). It takes about 30 minutes but the views are truly breathtaking and it offers some solitude during a day with hundreds of people. The french fries are pretty good on the subject of food. It only costs $25 to get into but parking is like $5. I have never been to Kennywood or Knoebels but I think Lake Compounce would be a lot like them. It is the oldest continuously running amusement park in the country and I reccomend your going. I hope this helps you make a choice and isn't too late.
