Dinosaur State Park
Under a geodesic dome, you can see 500 early Jurassic fossil tracks, 200 million years old! There is a very nice arboretum to tour, with an amazing collection of Mesozoic Era plants, and during the summer you can mine for gems and fossils at a sluice. Find Discount Hotels near Dinosaur State Park.
The oldest, continuously operating amusement park in America boasts one of the best wooden roller coasters in the world, Boulder Dash. The newest attraction, Rev-O-Lution, lets you spin and glide five stories high while on a motorcycle-type seat. Slip along on a family-sized raft at Mammoth Falls, fly in a harness on the Sky Coaster and hop aboard the Sky Ride to the top of a mountain. A dozen tike-size rides are provided for the little ones, and the whole family is invited to watch live entertainment productions on stage. Lake Compounce combines exciting rides with the largest water park in Connecticut – the free-all-day fountain sodas don’t hurt, either! Find Discount Hotels near Lake Compounce.
