Best Roller Coasters in the US – Best Amusement Parks – Popular Mechanics


Connecticut: Boulder Dash

Don’t mind the cliffs of Southington Mountain, the home of Boulder Dash. This uniquely designed wooden coaster hides in the mountain foliage, so when the 115-foot drop comes flying off a cliff, not only do you get the thrill of the drop, but the surprise of the cliff.

In all, the 4,752-foot-long coaster tracks at 60 miles per hour and uses the mountainside to hide much of the upcoming thrill.
