In 1937, three Waterbury businessmen, John Frantzis, Mike Leon, and George Terezakis, bought a lakefront property and formed Quassy. They soon added a picnic area, paddleboats and a carousel. Within the next few years a hot dog stand, a roller rink and a tearoom were added.
It was after World War II that Quassy established itself as an amusement park. Beginning in the late 1970s, new rides were added every year. The park has also designed its own clambake facilities and caters to business and organizational outings from 100 to 10,000.
Today, Quassy Amusement Park remains a unique family-oriented facility. They offer swimming, picnicking, a catering service, a huge family redemption arcade, Splash Away Bay water park and of course, more than 20 rides, including the award-winning Wooden Warrior roller coaster. Every year families can count on new attractions, new rides and most importantly, quality service.
Friday nights Quassy sells hot dogs, soda and rides for 50 cents each. All-day ride and waterpark wristbands are also available. A wristband is required to enter the waterpark and beach area, or guests may pay a separate admission. Individual ride tickets are also available. Parking fee charged. No admission fee to walk around the amusement park.
