Lake Compounce Announces “Phobia” for 2016
Lake Compounce, the United States’ oldest theme park, announced their new roller coaster, Phobia Phear Coaster, today. It is “the single largest investment” in Lake Compounce’s 168-year history.
Watch an animation of Phobia below:
Phobia is a Premier Rides “Sky Rocket 2” model, similar to Tempesto at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Superman Ultimate Flight at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. It will be the park’s first new roller coaster since “Boulder Dash” opened in 2000.

Phobia will feature three launches and a slow barrel roll 150′ in the air. Judging by the image below, it will be similar to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom’s Superman Ultimate Flight and have two cars of six people as opposed to Tempesto’s 3 car trains.
Lake Compounce teased the new attraction on social media, using the hashtag, #whatsintheboxlc
