 Review of Music Express @ Lake Compounce

I have to agree with those who say this ride needs some TLC. Also I thought it could go a little faster, at least when I was on it. Some 70s rock or disco would work a lot better than the really slow hip hop music they were playing when I was riding.

I couldnt figure out why they didnt referb this thing when they moved it. New lights and fresh paint at least shoudl have been done.

LC is unfortunately not alone with this attitude of "wait to the last minute" to refurbish their rides. Just about every park seems to operate like this. Makes more sense to me to correct something the minute you see it, saves you that much more effort later.

I think LC does a better job overall at maintaining their rides than many parks, but for some reason theyve been neglecting this one ride. Its been pretty run-down for as long as I can remember it. Maybe next year theyll finally give it some long overdue attention.

Who knows, maybe theyre waiting to totally change the theme? Anyways, yes its time for this ride to get spruced up.

That could be it given that down time is right next to it. but they had it apart it woudl have been easyer to fix it then. not its more work on there part to do anything with it.

It doesnt make any sense that they didnt do anything with it when it was apart, as money certainly wasnt a problem, and anyway that ride was old to begin with so Im half surprised they didnt replace it with a newer flat.

Peaple like the Music express. it always has riders. Its also better then most of the ones Ill been on. But they should have but didnt refurb this thing.

Well probably never know the reasoning behind it

Maybe they ment to have the company rehab it. if there was a back log they may have desided to wait.

If thats the case then it should be due very soon, as its been a year since it was relocated.

But thats only a thery. I dont really know why they didnt at least repaint it. Maybe it was as simple as time. the snow last year was terable. it made it quite hard to get things done.

Or it couldve been a supply thing. Maybe they didnt have or couldnt find the right kind of paint.
