BRISTOL--Are you ready to roll?

A brand new roller coaster is set to debut at Lake Compounce this season, and it's the first triple launch coaster in New England.

The Phobia Phear is the newest coaster, it stands 15 stories high, and boy is it a ride.

"It's a triple launch, so you'll go partway up the hill, come backwards, go up the back hill and then go through again at 65 mph, and then you'll do an inversion at 150 feet in the air," said Jerry Brick, the general manager at the amusement park.

The park opens for the season in May, at which point the roller coaster will debut. To learn more about ticket prices, click here.
