Is Lake Compounce still doing Text2Ride? I couldn't find anything about it on their website.

I'm going to be heading to Lake Compounce on a weekday at the end of July or early August and was planning on hitting up Quassy on the same day. I was hoping someone on here could give me suggestions on the best way to experience both parks.
-Which park should I start with/end with? Does it make any sense to start at LC and go to Quassy, then back to LC? Or, should I start at one park and end at the other? I'll be driving from Hopkinton, MA if that makes any difference. -Are either of the water parks worth the time? -Does it make sense to get an all day ride bracelet at Quassy, or should I just buy individual ride tickets for the two coasters. -On the credit whoring circuit, do either of the kiddie coasters at both parks require a little one to ride? -Any food things I should try out at either of the parks, or on the way to/from the parks?
Thanks in advance for your assistance. I'm really looking forward to riding Boulder Dash and Wooden Warrior.

I tried to do both parks a few weeks back... Sadly QL was closed to a private party...
Both parks are definitely doable in one day. I would suggest doing QL first, since it is truly small compared to other parks of the region...
I really enjoyed LC. The rides are pretty good, and it was a nice park to just hang around! I can't speak for the water parks as they aren't really my thing. What I can say is that the gonada ride was MAGNIFICENT. I suggest doing it late afternoon when the mountain is blocking the sun, make sure you have some really odd questions for the person who spends their shift sitting at the top of the ride...
Depends what day you go I guess. I would suggest Quassy then LC. Boulder Dash runs better later on and a night ride is a must. Better yet, make your first ride in the front seat at night, you won't be disappointed lol.
LC does have a after 5 ticket for $20 but if they are only open till 8 it is kinda weak. But I would just hit the two coasters at quassy (maybe a few extra rides on ww) then head to LC.
Also if you go Fri-Sun they have a sick new light show, really cool, the video I took doesn't do it justice

Hopefully this will put that horribly strange backwoods campground (that we stayed at a few years back) out of business.
I was thinking of you when I posted this news.
I still hope to get back to this park to get on Boulder Dash at night and perhaps have some more time to spend in the water park. I especially enjoyed the water slides that emptied into the lake....very unique for a US park to have something like this.
