  1. Yeah, I miss the stage by the old Lazy River. They could have kept it.


    Anyhow, I'm wondering what the new thing for SFA will be for 2019. I'm thinking it'll be either a. new trains for ME; b. new trains for Batwing or c. Roar gets RMC'd.


    Most likely will be b.


    A or B wouldn't be 'the new ride'. It would be something that they do extra. I bombed badly with last year's guess...lol..,.but what type of enthusiast would I be if I didn't. Top three guesses: 1. Discovery 2. Raptor 3. Spinsanity (I'll be butt hurt).


    I'd Switch 1 and 2 and replace Spinsanity with Tourbillon for 3.

  2. Lol,,.dont know about that. I kinda see what you mean, but it is a lot different. Vast improvement over the last one. Do not know how much it cost. Not sure I buy their claim on more deck space. Also, a little salty that the stage is gone. I enjoyed when they had music and events up there.


    Yeah. Wahoo River itself has had a borderline negative affect on the waterpark (loss of main stage, Only one walkway, etc) but due to its seemingly cheap price they added essential upgrades such as new flooring in the wave pool and brand new equipment for the kids water play area.

  3. Mini-TR: Six Flags New England 7/14/2018


    My family and I took the long journey from Baltimore to Agawam as a late Birthday trip for my 16th Birthday. It was a pretty packed day and by no means was I able to hit everything, partly due to my 4 hour stint in the waterpark. I was able to do Wicked Cyclone, Pandemonium, Batman: Dark Knight, Joker, Catwoman's Whip, Gotham

    City Gauntlet and Superman: The Ride.


    Wicked Cyclone: Caught this coaster in the earlier part of the day. I expected it to be Top 3 material but came off a little disappointed. I was expecting Skyrush style ejector and just an insanely fast paced ride but ended up getting a more tame ride in my opinion. Definitely in my top 10 but just wasn't what I was expecting. 8/10


    Pandemonium: Amazingly fun. Family coaster. In my opinion every park needs a family coaster along the lines of this one. My home park's family coaster is Rajin Cajun and the amount of fun experienced on that pales in comparison to the amount of fun had on Pandemonium. 7/10


    Joker: I've ridden the one at Great Adventure. Got a couple more flips this time but nothing different about this one. 6/10


    Batman: Dark Knight: Extremely middle of the road floorless coaster. Probably my least favorite of the floorless coasters due to the pacing. 5/10


    Catwoman's Whip: Standard Zierer Tivoli. SFA should get one.


    Gotham City Gauntlet: Quite possibly the worst Wild Mouse I've ever been on.


    Superman: The Ride: And to think I was going to skip this one. My oh my is this an amazing coaster. This coaster mixes Superman: Ride of Steel airtime with skyrush-esque turns albeit less intense. This coaster is truly a masterpiece and earned my #2 spot behind I305. 9.9/10

  4. Hello all, my home park is SFA and I will be taking the long journey from Baltimore to Agawam over the weekend. I'll likely have one full day at the park on saturday and may possibly have a few hours on Sunday but i'm not holding my breath on that. Is it possible that y'all can inform me on what to expect, what policies are different from those at SFA and what the must-dos are outside of the major rides. I'd also love any tips about how to have a much better day at the park. Thank you in Advance.

  5. I mean, that's a start, but relationships don't build overnight with a single email. There are parks that I have been working with for 10 to 15 years. Those relationships build over time. You also will need something that would be attractive to parks to work with you. Do you have a large base of users? Will you be bringing a group to the park? How large is the reach of your audience? These things are all very important.


    I'm working with around 150 followers do not that much on that end. it i figured that by having access to media events and the such that would help grow my follower base. But after reading what you said, I think i'll take the the time to grow my account to a reasonable size before trying to the stuff that I want to do. Thanks for the Information it is much appreciated.

  6. Hello Mr.Alvey. I have been trying to start my own small scale coaster group. I was wondering how I should go about creating relationships with park higher ups to gain access into media events ? Should I simply send them an email or is there more to it?
