Thrill Ride Reverse Time at Quassy Amusement park is big hit

Middlebury, Connecticut: REVERSE TIME, the new thrill ride at Quassy Amusement & Waterpark, is a huge hit with fans in its first few days of operation. Making its North American debut at Quassy, the ride is shown during operation today at the family-owned park. Built during the winter by SBF/VISA Group of Italy, REVERSE TIME arrived at Quassy in early March and was assembled within a week. SBF/VISA Group is represented in the United States by Rides4U, Somerville, N.J. Quassy is now open weekends with Splash Away Bay waterpark and Quassy Beach opening May 28 for the summer season.

Quassy Amusement & Waterpark, introduced Reverse Time on April 23, for its 108th season. Reverse Time, themed as a giant clock, accommodates 24 riders seated in a circular configuration facing outward. As the ride starts to spin it is lifted into the air with the supporting turntable rotating in the opposite direction. Guests will dip and dive as the ride reaches a maximum speed of 20 revolutions per minute. Mid-cycle, the ride will change direction adding to the exciting experience.

Quassy worked with SBF/VISA Group, the Italian manufacturer, in devising the color scheme for the attraction with the park’s artist creating a logo for the new ride. Rides 4U, Somerville, N.J., represents SBF/VISA in the United States. Reverse Time will also feature a state-of-the-art light-emitting diode (LED) lighting system and an over-the-shoulder restraint system. The new attraction will be located in the heart of the lakeside park where the former Trabant ride was situated. A staple at Quassy since 1965, the Trabant was retired at the close of the 2015 season. Reverse Time will be ready to thrill guests on the park’s opening day. Park officials noted that early season weekends will have a new operating time of 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Quassy Amusement Park & Waterpark is in its 108th year and 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.
