Rode it for the credit and I think it may be the worst coaster I;ve ever ridden. it just looks out of place in a beautiful park like LC. Its hills are slow and painful.

I got a few rides on this with my nice both front and back. The coaster is nothing spectacular. its an oval coaster with slightly brutal bunny hills. It is quick and a little exiting. My Nice loved it. so the extra points is because it did its job it was a good kiddie coaster that was well received by its riders. i saw many kids get off and run around to ride again.

Many of the kiddie coasters I liked as a kid, I hate now as an adult. However, this is one of the rare kiddie coasters I disliked as a kid! Well, the coaster honestly doesn’t look the best as with all Molina kiddie coasters in my opinion. All of their coasters just seem to look run down because of their age and rusty appearance. Anyway, the train does look nice since it seems to have just gotten a fresh coat of paint. Generally lines for this kiddie coaster are one cycle. However, I personally don’t find it worth the wait at all.

Now I haven’t ridden this in over ten years, but as a kid, I just remember it being pretty bumpy and more of a back massage than a roller coaster. I do remember getting multiple laps on it though, but the ride itself just wasn’t all that fun, as it consisted of a series of bumpy bunny hills that lacked any air or thrills at all. Heck, even if this was smooth, it still would be one of the poorer kiddie coasters I’ve been on. But the ultimate sign that you know a coaster is bad is the ride ending being your favorite part, and guess what my favorite part of this coaster is? Yeah, it really is that bad.

Lake Compounce simply is home to one of the poorest kiddie coasters I’ve ever ridden. Thanks to the incredibly bumpy ride it provides and the lack of any real entertainment, this simply is something not worth wasting your time on at the park, unless you’re absolutely crazy about getting the credit. I mean, kids love this as they do with any kiddie coaster since they seem immune to the beating kiddie coasters dish out, but as for adults, well, that’s a different story.

While not too exciting...it resembles a carnival ride....it does the job of entertaining the kiddies. When I took my neice to the park,there was no line for almost 15 minutes, so the attendant and I chit-chatted while my neice round around and around until someone else showed up.

Just your basic kiddie coaster. The attendant was nice enough to let my dad and I ride since no kids were in line. Looks a little worn out compared to the rest of the Garfield section.

My 2 and 7 year-olds liked this kiddie coaster, but it looked pretty undistinguished to me and had virtually no themeing. They also only circle it twice, and stop the ride to check on the kids after the first lap. This makes for a long wait for not much riding. Gets an extra point because adults can ride with the kids.
