Lake Compounce announces new car ride for 2007

Posted Wednesday, August 2, 2006 11:06 AM | Contributed by Jeff

A fleet of red-and-white miniature '56 Corvettes will be circling a track beneath the Zoomerang rollercoaster next spring as Lake Compounce begins its 161st season, park managers announced Tuesday. Zoomer's Gas N' Go will be similar to the antique car rides featured at many parks, where cars run along a rail at relatively low speeds, allowing the rider to steer. There will be heavy concentration on `50s and `60s era themes: A retro gas station and carwash, a row of miniature Burma Shave signs and `50s tunes coming through the Corvettes' speakers.
