 Review of Little Dipper @ Quassy Amusement Park

Just an ancient Herscell Little Dipper that goes around the track twice (Installed in 1952). It has to be one of the oldest operating steel coasters in the world. Other than that theres nothing remarkable about it.

This is an older steel coaster, and is run-down, but the ride is still fun. Every year, they add new pictures of cartoon characters to make the ride better.

I used to enjoy the Little Dipper more when I was younger, andI havent been to the park in sevral years. Its not that far from where I live, but its a pain in the a** to drive through Waterbury, and I rather spend my money at larger parks with more to offer (Lake Compounce is practically in my backyard, and SFNE isnt much farther). I used to go to Quassy more when the Lakes future was in limbo, and they had better flats than they do now. Maybe next year Ill return for the heck of it, if its still open.

Quassy is worth the trip, and it is still open. The park is cheep, has great rides, and decent food. However, there is a $4-$5 parking fee. If you dont want to spend a whole day there, ride tickets can be purchased. Each ride takes 1 ticket, and 1 ticket costs $2.00. If you go, definitely ride The Big Flush. It is by far the best ride at Quassy. Ride with someone else when you go, and you will get soaked. The foods prices are reasonable, and the fish and chips, and fried dough are excellent. Also, I hear that Quassy is planning to build a new major attraction next year. I wonder if that involves the removal of the Monster Mouse. You should go to Quassy, because it is a great park, and worth the visit.

Thats the first Ive heard, but I hope youre right. It would be nice if it were a wooden coaster. Quassy has never had one and I always thought they should, its a small park and a wooden coaser would help their business tremendously, provided they take good care of it. The parks centennial is coming up in a few years anyway, so theyd be stupid if they didnt add something huge for that.

They could add it in the empty field the Train circles, or destroy the Monster Mouse, and build a new coaster. I want them to build a wooden one. Maybe a small GCI twister would work in the open field? If the Monster Mouse is removed, Id expect a steel coaster, like a steel Wild Mouse.

Quassy could also use a log flume, they could destroy the Monster Mouse, and build a portable log flume. It would be a great ride, because they were lacking a log flume.
