News & Rumors

Bristol, CT
Parques Reunidos / Palace Entertainment







icon_STOPPark News - (1/22/2024) In a small update about the rumored loss of the 1911 Trolley from Lake Compounce, it was pointed out to me that the theme park does not actually down the Trolley car at all. When Kennywood announced they would revitalize the Lake Compounce theme park for the 1997 season, Kennywood struck a deal with the Shoreline Trolley Museum to restore and lease car 1414 to the park for the season to run on a section of track put into place at the park just for it, as the car was actually one that delivered guests to the park in the old days.
    Due to the popularity of the Trolley that first year, the lease arrangement between the museum and the park was extended. So with that in mind, I would look for the Trolley to return to the museum.
    (1/19/2024) We had heard before that most of the Palace Entertainment theme parks would be removing some older, troublesome, or costly to maintain attractions from their parks this season. According to a message sent out way the park has closed their vintage 1911 Trolley, the Bumper Cars and the Jolly Jester (kiddie pirate ship). Much like what we saw happen at Castle Park, the dedicated web pages for the attractions have been removed from the server.
    While attractions like Bumper Cars are easy to replace as they come and go out of favor, the loss of the Trolley is sure to be a huge disappointment to many, as it was such a unique item. I’ve included a video of it below.


2024 - Wildcat Renovation - (9/10/2023) Lake Compounce has confirmed that The Gravity Group will be re-tracking the Wildcat roller coaster, which will reopen in 2024 featuring The Gravity Group’s new vertically oriented Engineered Precut Track system. They just completed a similar track replacement project on Oakwood’s Megafobia coaster in the UK to rave reviews.
    Wildcat has been closed for the 2023 season due to issues with the ride, and after early season renovations on the park’s Boulder Dash coaster saw sections of GCI’s Titan Track added to Boulder Dash, there was rumored talks about re-tracking Wildcat with Titan Track as well for 2024. Apparently it is now clear that the park’s opted to go in a different direction with Wildcat and maintain the coaster’s standard wooden coaster status, rather than add sections of steel hybrid track.
