On May 4th, 2013, Quassy Amusement Park held its third annual "Wooden Warrior Day." As always, the park held a fantastic event and it was a great day. The park held a two hour ERT session from 10 am to noon, where we got plenty of rides on their iconic Wooden Warrior. Followed was a delicious lunch, and a guided tour of the park by park President Eric Anderson. Mr. Anderson took us took us around the park and through the waterpark showing us the latest Construction of the new rides - Tunnel Twister, Bullet Bowl, Speed Slides, and Fish Pond - to Splash Away Bay.
All photos were taken by us, with proper park permission. Enjoy the photo update!
When we woke up on the morning of October 6th, 2012, we did not know we would be visiting Quassy Amusement Park that evening, for the last time in 2012. At about noon that day, we made a sudden decision to visit Quassy. We left at about 2:00 pm, and did not arrive to the park until about 3:00 pm. As it was our last time visiting Quassy for the year, we decided to get unlimited ride bracelets which were approximately $18 dollars.
Surprisingly, the park was extremely crowded, and it was the busiest we ever saw it. The majority of the population was mostly groups of small children, and their parents. First we went straight to ride the Wooden Warrior. The que line was completely filled, and we waited about 40 minutes to ride it! It was well worth the wait, as it was our friends first time riding it. After, we decided to do a few other rides in the park, including the Kiddie Coaster, Little Dipper.
We were then a bit hungry, so we decided to get a quick snack to eat. We got some popcorn and a pretzel, and ate it on line for the Wooden Warrior, to help pass time. Then the wait was about 30 minuets, and we rode it in the back row. After, we rode a few more rides in the park, including the Classic Yo-Yo.
It was already 5:30 pm, and we decided we wanted to head home. Before we left however, we had to get one last ride on the Wooden Warrior. After, we left Quassy realizing our next visit will not be until 2013. Our quick day at Quassy was very fun. It turned our to be a quite expensive trip, for only riding a few rides in a few hours. Nevertheless, it was a great time, and we cant wait to visit Quassy to ride Wooden Warrior in 2013!
On Sunday July 22nd, 2012 after vising Six Flags New England for the day, we decided to visit Quassy Amusement Park. We were only at Quassy for a short two hours, but it was great! It was the second time we visited Quassy this past year, and the first time was for Wooden Warrior Day 2012.
We arrived at Quassy at approximately 5:00 pm. We noticed that the park had an unlimited ride wristband good from 5:00 pm to close, for only $10 dollars. We bought the wristband, and headed straight to ride Wooden Warrior first. The incredible Wooden Coaster only had a 5 minute wait, and we rode the Coaster a few times. A line was then forming, and we decided to head over to ride the parks Kiddie Coaster, the Little Dipper. We then rode a few other rides in the park including the old fashioned swing ride, the Yo-yo.

After that, we decided to ride Wooden Warrior a few more times. By then, it was about 7:00 pm, and we decided to head home. We had a long day at Six Flags New England, and we were exhausted. It was a fun two hours at Quassy. We got to ride a few rides, including Wooden Warrior. If your ever in Connecticut, stop by at Quassy to have some fun, and ride Wooden Warrior!

May 5th, 2012 was Wooden Warrior Day 2012 at Quassy Amusement Park. Overall it was one of the best days at Quassy! Wooden Warrior Day is an event held by Quassy for Roller Coaster Enthusiasts. The day was filled with ERT, lunch buffet, and a special guest!
That day, the park was scheduled to open at noon. For registered guests, Wooden Warrior opened at approximately 10:35 a.m. About 100 guests quickly lined up to ride Wooden Warrior. During the ERT from 10:30 to noon, the wait time was about 10 minuets. After ERT (Exclusive Ride Time), lunch for guests opened up. Mostly everyone went straight for lunch, while the others stayed on Wooden Warrior. Then, there was no wait for the Coaster!
For lunch, the park provided a great buffet lunch including Burgers, Hot Dogs, Chicken, Pasta, and more! At approximately 1 pm, we had a special guest speaker. Micheal Graham, from the Gravity Group came and gave us a presentation showing off there Coasters. After that, there was an auction for many cool prizes, including mugs, shirts, posters, trains parts, and other goodies!
After lunch, everyone enjoyed the great small park. Thankfully, that day at the park was empty! The average wait for Wooden Warrior was a few minutes! Throughout the day, many people rode all there favorite, classic rides at Quassy! At 6 pm the park closed to the general public. However for us Wooden Warrior stayed open for another hour!
Overall, the day at the park was wonderful. Many people got a ton of rides in on one of the greatest Wooden Coasters - Wooden Warrior! (I got over 75 rides on it in one day!) We also got a lot of great videos, including an amazing front POV video, a back seat POV video and the FIRST reverse POV for Wooden Warrior. We also created a Wooden Warrior Documentary and many more videos and photos to be released soon!
