  1. Wow, that was absolutely amazing! The final scene where they play "So Close" from Enchanted to the end gave me goosebumps like crazy! I can't wait to go back out to California to see this show in person
  2. No offense taken, the park is on the small end, but not the smallest Six Flags park. But when the crowds are low, you can breeze through the park within a few hours. The only time I personally can get a full day at the park is when I'm with some friends.
  3. Ohh yeah, I've been on Thunderbolt when the train just passed that red line. That means we got to go for a second time so the ride-op can try again in stopping the train within the red line.
  4. Well, the restraints are the same kind as El Toro and El Toro doesn't have a max height. So maybe we'll be fortunate to see the removal of the max height. I do know the max height was put in place when the old restraints were modified.
  5. ....I'm confused... The crowds were low due to a combination of the weather being bad and Easter (it was actually much more busier on friday which was the opening day.) Superman isn't going anywhere, it just got a new name, better trains, and some theming, The park isn't going down the drain, since I've been going to the park for 20 some odd years, I've seen it's ups and downs, but overall, six flags parks all reported profits last year per what SFMM management said at West Coast Bash. But yeah, the price of the upcharge ride is kinda steep for the kind of ride.
  6. They generally rotate in using the two trains every season. But as for running two trains on Thunderbolt, it cannot be done due to the braking system. If they had pinch brakes, then they would be able to have two trains since they stop a train much faster than the skid brakes on thunderbolt.
  7. They say that the tunnels will have fog machines. Wouldn't that be pretty cool to see a wall of fog coming out of that bizarro panel opening with the coaster track kinda disappearing into the fog. Hopefully that's what they're intending to do, but we'll see what happens when Memorial Day Weekend rolls around.
  8. Why not? They made the decision to change it! I'm really starting to like the whole Bizarro thing. But I still think it's lame that it won't be open until Memorial Day. It's usually around Memorial day is when the new rides generally open at the park. Dark Knight was intended to open for memorial day until SFNE decided to cancel the project and put astro turf over the foundation. What I can't wait is the new trains, i hope the ride will be smooth just like when it first opened.
  9. I gotta say Shane... Thank you so much for posting those videos of Cyclone! You don't know how hard it is to find any historical photos of Riverside. Watching those videos brings back classic memories of Riverside when I was a kid. Even for living 20 minutes from the park, my family and I would go usually just once a year since my Dad's company had his company picnic there yearly. I'm glad that the park still is holding onto that Riverside feel in some of the rides and buildings. Btw, back to the historical photos of riverside. Agawam Historical Society - Riverside Park That is so
  10. Wow, you caught two things I did not even realize in my photos and I took them. haha I don't know how New England residents would take it. It would have made more sense if they put down the New England Patriots...however, I'm pretty sure it's easier to use the Redskins logo with the new management. i.e. no need to file for use of a registered logo. As for the funatics, I think I did see some advertisement in the bathroom where you could text a word to one of those text phone numbers and get discounts and special offers. But other than that, no. I didn't see anything or hear an
  11. Thank you guys for the compliments on my report so far . I didn't get a chance to ride it with the new restraints, but my friend Brian who I was at the park with did. He said it's not the same. You don't get that airtime you did with the old lapbar. With these, you get a bit of the airtime, but the restraints push you back down. Now what really makes me scratch my head is, I thought the old style lapbars were a key feature of a classic wooden coaster to be able to receive the ACE coaster classic that it received in 2008.
  12. I know it's been way too long since I did a photo TR, but I thought I'd share with you guys some photos I took today of the opening weekend for Six Flags New England. The park was intended to be open from 10-8pm today, but due to the low low crowds and weather, the park closed up early at 3pm. To start off here are some changes that the park has made. Nightwing: The George Foreman Grill Experience - Gone Joker's Wildcard - Returned and is in the spot where nightwing was. Timewarp - Gone Superman Ride of Steel - Well everyone knows it's Bizarro now. Slingshot - New upcharge ride in th
  13. I agree with you there. When I went to Solace back in 2007, they hardly had any interesting activities during the event. I even left early and had more fun helping Kyle and his color guard group paint a big map of the world in Santa Monica.
  14. That was a good update. I'm glad I was able to make it out this year back to California to see all you guys. I will say the additions to WCB did make the event 10x better. Team number 8...no these guys are NOT the cheaters! If you know what team the cheaters were (or if you have ever cheated on anything).... EMAIL DAN! and he will make sure those cheaters PAY! Yeah Hi, we so played by the rules for the scavenger hunt. But we did contemplate one of us just standing on the plaque at the gift shop. hehe
