The lakeside property will introduce the largest single investment in the park's 114-year history next spring: a gigantic raft ride that incorporates state-of-the-
"We had more than 90 entries when we asked schools to help name our new roller coaster in 2011, and we believe students will come up with some great names for our new water coaster, too," Quassy President Eric Anderson said of the challenge. "We look forward to seeing the entries for this project as well."
Students will have the opportunity to view a rendering of the huge ride as they ponder possible names for the attraction. Two-person rafts will plunge from a dispatch tower and be pushed uphill by water jets at three separate locations along the course. In addition, a number of banked turns will add to the thrilling experience. The new raft ride will be built this off-season in Quassy's Splash Away Bay Waterpark.
The rules for entering the contest are as follows:
Submitted names – one per classroom - may not infringe on copyrighted or trademarked products. Submissions must made by teachers and include the school name, contact information, grade and number of students in the class. The deadline to enter is Dec. 10 and all submissions must be e-mailed to email@example.com with Name The Water Coaster in the subject line.
Park management will review all entries and determine if a winning name is selected. Results will be final.
If a winning entry is chosen, the class will be invited to the park for a day of rides. In addition, the students will receive a T-shirt related to the contest.
