Are you planning your next theme park visit?

Have you spent enough time at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios enough and are ready to try something new?

Some less heralded parks feature some of the most impressive rides on the planet.

When you think about great theme park destinations, Bristol, Connecticut admittedly isn’t at the top of the list.

It’s primarily known as home base for ESPN, but your favorite sports anchors almost assuredly have spent time at the theme park that pre-dates them by more than a century.

Lake Compounce is the oldest continually operating theme park in America, and its anchor attraction is Boulder Dash.
