Tips for Making the Most of Fall Events at Quassy

Posted on September 15, 2023

As summer winds down and the temperature begins to cool, there’s a shift in everyday activities around Connecticut.  Quassy Amusement Park's fall events offer an enchanting escape into the heart of autumn's beauty. From festive festivals to spine-tingling adventures, this park transforms into a seasonal wonderland that captivates visitors of all ages. Whether you're a thrill-seeker, or simply in search of a memorable family outing, Quassy's fall events are sure to leave you with cherished memories and a deeper appreciation for the magic of the season. Plan your visit today and immerse yourself in the world of Quassy's fall festivities.

  1. Plan Ahead: There are plenty of varying events happening throughout fall, view the event scheduled ahead of time to make sure you don't miss an event that you want to participate in! 
  2. Capture Memories: Don't forget to document whichever fall events you attend! Quassy provides the perfect backdrop for your fall photographs. Plus, we love to see your photos, share them on social media tagging Quassy! 
  3. Dress in Layers: We all know how unpredictable the fall weather can be in Connecticut. Wear layers because you never know how the temperature will change as the sun begins to go down in the afternoons! 
  4. Stay Hydrated: Even though the weather is cooler, staying hydrated is as important as ever. You don't want to miss out on any of the fun just because you didn't drink enough water.
  5. Arrive Early: Park hours are shorter but there's still plenty of time to get in everything you want to do. Maximize your day by arriving at the park early. 

At Quassy, summer might be our busiest season when the waterpark is open and the lake is crowded with families playing in the sun, but we also love being in the park during a crisp fall day. If you are looking to get into the fall spirit, there are plenty of fall events at Quassy.
