ORLANDO, Fla: Slide City, the new five-slide children’s attraction at Quassy Amusement & Waterpark, started taking shape Tuesday as construction crews placed sections of fiberglass flumes on location. The Middlebury, Conn., park announced the additions to its popular Splash Away Bay waterpark in June with construction to be completed in time for the 2016 season.
ProSlide Technology, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, provided the new slides. Quassy officials said three huge state-of-the-art waterslides are also on the drawing boards for future expansion in the park. The five latest waterslides are among numerous park improvements coming for 2016 and the recent mild weather has helped construction crews remain on target.
Quassy Amusement Park & Waterpark features more than two-dozen rides and attractions. The lakeside property is also home to Splash Away Bay waterpark with dozens of ways to get wet. The park was honored by industry publication Amusement Today with its 2015 Turnstile Award. Publisher Gary Slade noted the recent improvements made by Quassy in presenting the award before an international audience in New York in September. Other rides include the award-winning Wooden Warrior roller coaster, Music Fest, Yo-Yo super swings, Free Fall ‘N’ Drop Tower, Grand Carousel and more. The park also has a restaurant, redemption arcade, games, live entertainment and special events. Purchase daily and season passes online at www.quassy.com or at the park. Also, birthday party online reservations have been added this year. Company picnics, school fieldtrips and other catered events are also being scheduled through the park office at 203-758-2913. Quassy is located at 2132 Middlebury Road, Route 64, in Middlebury, Conn., on the shores of Lake Quassapaug.
