The Coaster101 Podcast: “Hidden Gem” Parks

This week on the podcast, Shane recounts his recent trip to Lake Compounce, a park considered a hidden gem by many enthusiasts. Shane and Andrew then get into a discussion about several other “hidden gem” parks, including Conneaut Lake Park, Waldameer, The Great Escape, and Family Kingdom! If you like small parks, this week’s episode is for you!

We also talk Kentucky Kingdom’s new chaperone rule, because it seemed newsworthy. Are the teens going to cancel Kentucky Kingdom again? Are they going to cancel us? Listen and find out which side of the rules we sit on!
