This park is quite similar to Lake Compounce in size and what they have to offer. The biggest issue was that I was there on a Saturday, and not only was it crowded, I only had a few hours to visit. These smaller parks have big trouble accomodating crowds,so avoid going to any of them on a Saturday. They aren't very good with capacity. This is the only park I know of that allows pet dogs on a leash, and also has a small casino. It is home to a Corkscrew rollercoaster and the Yankee Cannonball, a wooden rollercoaster that was resuced from the wrecking ball at another location. But like many of these parks, they wouldn't run the second train, even though they had the line for it. I have videos of both posted. They had a kiddie coaster, and that strangely had this monster line for it.
This park resembles a RollercoasterTycoon park more than any other. There is a popcorn stand that looks like a bag of popcorn, a hot dog stand that looks like a hot dog. It also has a small train ride, and just like the game, you have to get off at the other end. It has a waterfall ride in a New England themed area. It had a dark ride, with a long line and low capacity, but it wasn't that great. If you plan on going there, avoid the weekends. I wanted to stay longer, but was determined to keep my schedule, and left early for my next destination.
