QUASSY Amusement Park
Park News - (9/16/21) Earlier this year we mentioned how the Haunted Graveyard had parted ways with Lake Compounce and was expected to set up shop somewhere else for 2021. At the time we thought that perhaps Haunted Graveyard was ready to go solo, but a local news piece has confirmed that instead the Haunted Graveyard crew is setting up shop at Quassy this season, and are behind that park’s all new Halloween themed haunt experience.
The dream for Haunted Graveyard is still to create their own stand-alone attraction and they are currently eyeballing a site in Windsor at 1001 Day Hill Road where they could set up for not only Halloween fun, but also adding in a Dicken’s Village and other events to keep them running in the Spring and Summer as well.
(9/11/21) A big surprise has come from Quassy this fall, as the park used to feature a more family-friendly style Halloween celebration is instead launching Terror at Quassy this year. Look for Terror at Quassy to take place over select nights in October and feature the Zombie Hospital, Haunted Catacombs and more.
Currently the park is in the middle of promoting their new “Totally Rock’n Drive-In Laser Light Show!” experience taking place on Sept. 11-12, 17, 18 and 19th at 8pm each night. Gates open at 6pm and the price is just $25 per car.
(4/25/21) According to the local news not only has Quassy reopened to guests this weekend, but guests flocked to the park in the kind of numbers you would have seen pre-pandemic, which is great news for the park. Quassy currently has no capacity limits and is just asking guests to wear a mask, as per state mandates.
This too will soon go away, as Connecticut’s Governor is removing all restrictions except for an “indoor mask mandate” starting on May 19. Quassy has confirmed to the report that they too won’t require guests to wear masks at the park once this goes into effect next month. Quassy is ready to get back to a normal season and is off to a great start if the opening day attendance was any indication.
Quassy will be open weekends from 11am to 5pm now through Memorial Day when the waterpark will also open for the season and the hours and days of operation will be extended for the Summer season. A quick note, all the park’s in Connecticut were authorized by the state to be able to reopen this year with no capacity restrictions.
2021 - Nothing is known at this time...
2022 - Unnamed Water Coaster - (6/20/21) A tweet from Coasters and Brews shows off a poster at Quassy promoting their new 2022 attraction already. It doesn’t have a name yet, but look for a new ProSlide water coaster style slide with Flying Saucer turns to come to the park’s Splash Away Bay waterpark next year. No word on if this will be a RocketBlast style (water jet) or the HydroMagnetic variety.
