Boulder Dash Reviews & Ratings
The Coaster Critic’s Blog
The hype for this ride was huge. Almost too huge. But after three rides on this baby I was able to form an opinion. While I’m not the biggest wooden coaster fan, I am a huge fan of terrain coasters (and mountains for that matter). Rating: 9.5/10 “Excellent”
