 Review of Compounce Mountain Sky Ride @ Lake Compounce
0 Rating Posted by: ibluv on 11/5/2004 6:24:00 PM
Its a 20 min. ride to the top of the mountain and back. The view is breathtaking. You can see the entire Farmington Valley, and even Long Island Sound if its a clear enough day. I love this ride cuz its quiet and it takes you away from people for awhile, and if youre lucky youll see an eagle or some other exotic wildlife you didnt know existed in Connecticut. But if youre afraid of heights, then this ride isnt for you, as its WAY high up over rocky terrain and is VERY steep for a stretch on the return trip down the mountain.

They must have been running it fast. It was a 30 minute ride for me. Im glad to se you liked the ride. Ive only ridden it once. I normally go early season and October. Its closed. It is a great ride to relax on.

I get really scared on it tho, cuz Im kinda afraid of heights. But Ive been on it many times, cuz I like scary rides, and most rides that should scare me dont. Besides Colossus the "old" SFNE Cyclone I think this is the scariest ride Ive ever been on.

Colossus there Ferris wheel is a bit nerve racking. I dont mind them just the fact its run in SFNE and there maintanince is tarible. The sky ride is a bit intense on the return when it comes over the peak on the return trip.

When the sky ride stops cuz ppl have trouble getting on (which it does often) I cant help but think of what would happen if it never started again. It would definitely be a difficult job to rescue everyone if this ride ever broke down, but so far that hasnt happened.
