BRISTOL — “Move over, Disneyland,” Buzzfeed writes. The website has compiled a list of “the most underrated amusement parks to visit before you die.”
Local spot, Lake Compounce, made the list! It is the oldest, continuously-operating amusement park in North America, opening in 1846. Lake Compounce is home to Boulder Dash, which has been voted the world’s #1 wooden roller coaster, as well as Connecticut’s largest water park.
“It’s a compact park with a few other great coasters. They also have plenty of shows to see, a water park, river rapids, kid’s park, and even a chairlift that goes over a mountain at the park’s edge. Also, soda is free which is a great bonus :).” one Buzzfeed reader writes.
Knoebels Grove in Elysburg, PA took the top spot on the list.
