I admittedly haven't visited Lake Compounce on a weekday in quite some time, but I've never seen them do delayed openings in the past.

That's a shame to hear about Boulder Dash. I thought it was running very well outside of one bump on the outward leg when I rode it in May.

As for Ghost Hunt, I used to hate it. But the work they did on the guns made it much more enjoyable.

No airtime to be had either especially on that back section by the lake. Really surprised me to be honest. I guess I rode this on the worst day it's ever been running. 4/10.


You just summed up our rides on it a few years ago (though there's nothing rough about Rougarou).

As for the delayed openings of just about every good ride in the park, I don't want to be the guy that comes into this thread just to constantly pile on Parques Reunidos for being terrible but... lol

Hmm. Rougarou rough you say. So I guess it was pretty smooth!

(I kid. I'm one of those few crazy people that loves Rougarou :lol: )

PS: Glad to hear you still had fun though, despite all the shortcomings of the park.

Please do. It's just as fun to bash Parques Reunidos as it is CoastRider.

I thought BD was running very well when I rode it on opening day. It’s not on El Toro’s level or anything but it’s still very good.

You're right it's not on El Toro's level. It's above it. :lol:

I hope to make it down some Saturday this summer so I can get a rare non-Haunted Graveyard night ride. Those night rides are why I justify putting Boulder Dash above a ton of rides like El Toro.

^The night time rides on it during the 2008 TPR trip were amazing. They had also just completed the GCI retracking so the ride was smooth and hauling ass all the way through.

Except on the cooler mornings at the start of the year, Boulder Dash never has a problem hauling.

The park does its fair share of trackwork on Boulder Dash, but they admittedly wait to retrack a section until it gets pretty bumpy. See the triple down for evidence.

Delayed openings are very common with this park, especially this year. Boulder Dash almost never opens at opening. You would think they would do whatever work needs to be done during the hours the park is closed.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Looks like LC is starting to tease something new.

Wonder if "by the lake" means waterpark, which desperately needs new rides (or the return of the Lake Plunge slides) or actually something new, maybe up where the skyride was.
