Your mission: maneuver through the web of light beams in a race against time.
Quassy Amusement Park will introduce the Laser Maze Challenge™ for the 2013 season, park officials announced today. The new attraction will be located in Quassy’s huge redemption arcade building in the heart of the lakeside facility.
“The laser maze will be an exciting addition to our attractions lineup,” Quassy President Eric Anderson said. “We spent a great deal of time researching this particular unit and it has been highly successful at existing locations.”
Park officials were able to see the latest working edition of the laser maze during the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo in Orlando, Fla., recently.

The new attraction is being provided by Funovation of Longmont, Colo.
The laser maze will open on April 27 as Quassy kicks off its 105th season. The park is also doubling the size of its water park for 2013 with the addition of three new slides and an interactive kiddy splash pad. The water park and Quassy Beach open for their summer season on Saturday, May 25.
Birthday parties, company outings, church picnics, family reunions and other catered events are currently being booked through the park office.
