Day 1 - Lake Compounce and Quassy

After an uneventful flight with a few other Cfers, we reached Boston and completed the immigration lark, collected baggage and met up with the rest of the group and headed on to Lake Compounce - home of the woody Boulder Dash (hence the "dash" in the blog title) - Highly recommended by other CF peeps.

Park entrance and Wildcat. We didn't come across the "Polish American Congress"!

We arrived at the park, and saw the car park next to the entrance was service vehicles only, and the car park opposite was employees only - the trip to the customer car park took another 5-10 minutes, but we were soon in and queueing for BD, which unfortunately wasn't running as well as it should, so we went round the other coasters hoping it would "warm up".

First was Wildcat - the parks other woody, and one which many people say is very rough - the group was divided - about half thought it was awful, and half loved it - including me

Next up was Zoomerang - a Vekoma boomerang, which was rather rough, despite people saying it was one of the better boomerangs (Wipeout at PWH is better).  We weren't allowed on the kiddie coaster, and along with a few rerides on BD (which was running better, but wasn't the super awesome coaster we'd expected) - the only other ride we had time for was Ghost hunt - a dark ride / shooter which was ok.

We then made the short journey to Quassy, for Wooden Warrior

Unfortunately they'd closed early - I think due to the rain. - Ahh, the joys of being a coaster freak!
