On Sunday the Virginia Pilot ran a piece from the LA Times about Boulder Dash at Lake Compounce.  I have not ridden it, but Brady MacDonald did a nice job with the article.  

   

As I could not find it online, (to be fair I did not look very hard) Here is a photograph of the article.  (before coffee, this was all my brain could manage)  It is mostly not blurry (I can not speak to shitty) and is of sufficient resolution where you can easily zoom in to read.

Enjoy!

Here is the original LA Times piece.

I don't entirely understand why the Virginia Pilot picked it up? We don't have enough amusement park news locally?

Thanks for the link! I have no idea why the Pilot picked it up, but I am glad they did!

I'm guessing since the ride has won many Golden Ticket Awards, the writer is giving the park more exposure as they will be hosting the event this September.

Speaking of the writer, Brady MacDonald, he strictly covers the entire amusement industry for the LA Times.

Last October he even mentioned InvadR in an article as one of the top attractions for 2017.

Brady MacDonald is great. We've spoken briefly before and he has mentioned BGWFans and shared our stories a few times over the years. He's a great voice of reason in a sea of sensationalist, misinformed media coverage of the industry.
