The tunneled turnaround is being erected this week behind the park’s Grand Carousel. The track will be enclosed on this section of the run, adding more excitement to the family ride.

The final bunny hops and brake run are shown in this photo. The catwalk and handrails are also being nailed into place.

The incline and final cross-over are shown from the stairway on the Big Flush ride, which sits adjacent to the new roller coaster.

I guess they're just building an "old" new wooden roller coaster in Wisconsin. ;)

Wooden Warrior is the only new wooden coaster being built in the U.S. for the last two seasons. The only other ones being built are two rebuilds (Little Dipper and Zippin Pippin) and Flying Turns (only the Flying Spaghetti Monster knows when that will open).

Quassy has sent us the latest release, including the official ride logo for their new coaster, the Wooden Warrior.

Quassy Amusement Park, Middlebury, Conn., today unveiled the logo for its new “Wooden Warrior” roller coaster. The design has been in the works for several months within the park’s art department with management today approving the final version. The logo will not only appear on signage used in the park, but also on merchandise promoting the new family ride. The coaster was named by regional elementary students in a contest that had more than 90 entries. The coaster’s name reflects the Native American heritage of the 103-year-old property which is situated on Lake Quassapaug, which means “Great Pond” or “Rock Pond.” The 1,250-foot coaster is currently under construction at Quassy and on target for opening in the spring of 2011. The “Wooden Warrior” was designed by The Gravity Group of Cincinnati, Ohio. Funding for the project provided by TD Bank.

^ Old Chief Woodenhead. YES!

Wooden Warrior...I could make so many crude jokes about that name, but I'll refrain for now... :lol:

Good looking coaster, anyway.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Quassy has sent us a large update on construction of their newest addition, the Wooden Warrior!

The wild and fun turnaround on the new “Wooden Warrior” roller coaster at Quassy Amusement Park in Middlebury, Conn., is shown during this phase of construction on Saturday, Nov. 20, 2010 in photos 001, 002, 003, 006. The turnaround will be enclosed in a tunnel when completed. The sharp banking as the coaster dives into the turn will add more thrills before the train emerges for another drop and makes its way back to the station!

Twisted! The lower track leaves the loading station before making its way up the incline, while the portion of framework shown above it will cross over not only the coaster, but also the park’s train ride.

I'm excited for this coaster. Haven't been to Quassy in eight years. And will this be the first new coaster in Connecticut for over 10 years?

I wrote the book about donkeys!

If you want to get really obscure, no. But for all intents and purposes, yes. As I might be going to university in Connecticut, I am excited.
