Quassy’s Splash Away Bay Waterpark To Get ‘Supercharged’ For 2018
Middlebury, Connecticut: Splash Away Bay waterpark at Quassy Amusement Park will get three new gigantic water raft rides for the 2018 season.
A combined length of more than 1,000 feet will be constructed during the offseason. With this new addition, the total number of slides in the lakeside complex will reach 15.
“We’re thrilled that we can start the project later this summer and have it completed for the waterpark’s opening next year,” said park President Eric Anderson.
Along with the new slides, Quassy will also construct Splash Away Bay Café & Deck overlooking Lake Quassapaug. Guests at Quassy Beach and the waterpark will be able to purchase food and beverages at the café and enjoy rooftop seating.
The waterpark expansion will be the single-largest investment in the park’s history, Anderson noted.
“Within the past several years, we have invested heavily in the park with new water attractions, amusement rides, and infrastructure improvements,” Anderson added. “Two new rides were added this year as well as our new candy shop and +administration offices.”
In 2015 Quassy announced a multi-year plan to add new attractions to the waterpark. Last year Slide City, a five-slide complex for children, was introduced as the first phase of the strategy.
Also, Reverse Time, a major thrill ride and the first in all of North America, opened in the amusement ride area of the park.
Quassy Amusement Park & Waterpark is in its 109th year and features more than two dozen rides and attractions. New this year are children’s interactive rides Skipper’s Clipper pirate ships and Up, Up & Away balloons. Adults may also ride with their youngsters on the new attractions.
