Quassy coaster construction pushed back to fall, will open next year

Posted Thursday, February 18, 2010 11:52 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Construction on the Quassy 1,200-foot roller coaster was initially planned for last fall or this spring, but was delayed by a court appeal from a nearby homeowner who wanted more buffering between his home and the 102-year-old park.

Let me see, this park has been there for 102 years. Is this home owner older than 102 years? If not, they should have never moved close to the park if they did not want to hear the noise. Case dismissed.

Except that I'm sure 75 or 50 or possibly even 25 years ago it was just a pond with some swan boats or something with a similar level of noise.

Edit: Note, I have no actual history of the park, but I've been many, many times and I'm sure that it wasn't always a rides/screaming park.

I'd negotiate. If someone wants to build a wooden coaster next to me (not necessairly a small wooden coaster like Quassy's, but a world class wooden coaster) I promise not to raise a legal challenge to them... IF they give me unlimited free rides for me and up to 5 friends for life.

That Mad Mouse alone is louder; and it's running cars all day long as opposed to this that will run a single train every 3-5 minutes or so.

The new TGG product in CT now has a name - Wooden Warrior.

Congrats to Quassy (and the winning classrooms) on what is sure to be a fabulous addition to a great smaller park. :)
