Lake Compounce built this unique wooden roller coaster in 2000. Boulder Dash is one-of-a-kind, since it is the first roller coaster to be entirely built on a mountain. The ride gets its name from the rugged terrain it's built atop that consists of rock faces, boulders and plenty of trees. Leaving the station, the lift hill climbs the mountainside and disappears into the forest. By the time it reappears, Boulder Dash has already descending the 115 foot first drop. Most of the roller coaster is hidden from view which adds an element of surprise for first time riders.
