When I first heard about Boulder Dash back in the winter of 1999 and
being a huge fan of terrain coasters I knew one day I had to get to Lake
Compounce and take it for a ride. Well it took me a decade but I was
finally here. Actually this was a pretty awesome day because not only
was I about to ride Boulder Dash but I finally got to take the
Coney Island Cyclone for a ride
a few hours before.
OK, you know the price of gas is way too expensive when the big prize for
playing Skee Ball is a $50 gas gift card.
As soon as we got into the gates Lake Compounce had a nice, friendly feeling
with plenty of shade and great atmosphere.
The main part of Lake Compounce is laid out in an oval deep down in a valley.
When you turn to head around the back side of the loop you're greeted with
this view of Boulder Dash up on the mountainside. If I didn't say
that my heart rate quickened at this point I would be lying.
