Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Hey everybody!

 

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Six Flags New England, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Rides announced for 2006

 

 

 

Well, three if you want to count the slingshot but it's no where mentioned in the article. But I did see a picture of what is supposedly the slingshot...

anyway, the two new rides which we all pretty much knew were the spinning coaster in the north end and the typhoon water coaster slide.

 

Dancing five stories above the ground, Mr. Six’s Pandemonium will take park Guests on an all-new ride experience creating a new spin on the typical roller coaster. Face-to-face in individual 4-person cars, Guests will enjoy more than a quarter mile of totally unique fun, shared with family and friends. This roller coaster spins like a top while moving up and down through hairpin turns and plummeting spirals. Each ride that Guests take on Mr. Six’s Pandemonium will be different, just like the master of playtime himself. No other coaster will leave you dizzy with laughter like Mr. Six’s Pandemonium!

Mr. Six's Pandemonium will be the first coaster inspired by the character.

 

Making a huge splash at Hurricane Harbor, Typhoon will offer park goers a unique thrill only to be experienced at Hurricane Harbor. Typhoon offers an extreme 3-person rafting experience. The water coaster’s rocket propelled water and conveyer belts blast riders though a serpentine series of high bank turns, enclosed tunnels and up hill climbs at racing speeds. Typhoon’s technology includes higher and faster uphill sections than any existing water coaster in the country. The thrill of a traditional coaster gets “all wet” with the 2005 debut of Typhoon!

IMO, I think these will be some good additions to the park since our last one was in 2003 with the waterpark expansion.

The US will never come close to a 100% take rate for a COVID vaccine. Hell, for the 2018-2019 flu season, only 45% of adults got the flu shot, which has been tested and proven to have minimal side ef

I'm sure that's not the criteria. They'll reopen when the governor arbitrarily decides that they can. There will be no metrics or science involved but there will be a press conference about how they'r

^^ Thanks for posting that! You beat me to it! Something new to ride during our SFNE visit this year! Glad they are getting a new coaster, but the water ride looks WAY cool!

 

Is the water slide one of the new ProSlide "Rocket's?"

We just might have to try and hit SFNE earlier than PPP weekend if it is!

^ Yeah, I believe it is. Also, If you watch the video they announce that it's new technology so it's not like the regular waterslides where water pushes you up, it's like this high speed conveyer belt that brings you up. And those are some big hills the slide has!

 

[Edit] Ignore what I said here earlier, I read further into what I found and someone corrected the person who claimed it was a White Water manufactured slide. Supposedly they said that Pro Slides will also be using the same technology when it comes to the acceleration belts when going up hill. So I apologize, looks like it will be a Pro Slides slide[/Edit]

I think its awesome that SFNE is adding a Gerstlauer spinning coaster. I rode Timberland Twister at Camp Snoopy last summer and that thing, believe it or not, is awesome. Its just a really fun and thrilling coaster. I was quite impressed. I have plans to visit SFNE this summer so that makes the visit even better! That water ride looks pretty sweet too. I need to start visiting Six Flags' water parks. I might have to give SFNE's a try.

As I said on other forums,

 

Why could not they have themed this to Mr. Six falling and cant get up (another commercial reference).

 

Instead of Vengaboys, youd have some old person going "Ive Fallen and I cant get up!"

Thats pretty cool how they incorporate the coaster around the time warp. Do they have an opening date for this baby yet? I hope to ride before i go away for an internship (if i even get one). Or else i will have to wait til october.

Bet they'll drop the Mr. Six portion of the coaster name by 2007. Either the character will be totally played out by then and we'll just have Pandemonium, or Six Flags will once again be selling off some properties to Cedar Fair, in which case we'll get Wicked Twister.

 

Please, Jebus, please, don't let them be playing that Venga Boys song in the queue at all times!

I agree with Derek! This is a bad idea...how can you theme the ride to a character who's only been around one season and everyone is tired of already?!? Have you seen this years commercials yet? They're awful!!

^ Breath Elissa, Breath....If you noticed by the artist rendering, the Mr. Six statues are pretty close to the track...so all you have to do is smuggle a bat onto the right and just whack him down. Also, what do you think about the new water coaster?

 

I think that it's cool that SFNE is the first to have a Mr. Six themed right, the track looks like a mess and it's going to be boat loads of fun. Can you imagine just in the car when you get near Time Warp when it's running.... But I do agree the Mr. Six theme is a bit tacky, but I'll still ride the coaster.

Oh how can you doubt the power of the energetic Mr. Six... He has danced his way into our hearts...

 

His high intensity dance moves, baggy pants, and huge glasses can't fail to bring a smile to your face.

Do they have an opening date for this baby yet?

 

I belive it's slated to open the same day the park opens for the season which is April 21st.

You mean it opens the 16th?... And I dont think the coaster will be donw then. Doents the press thing say "Late spring 2005"

Eh, the water ride will be fun...but from what I discovered at Schlitterbahn...I like Waterslides that go down, a lot more than the ones that go up! The uphill stuff just didn't do it for me...seemed slow, boring, and pointless.

Man... Sometimes I really start to think that Six Flags doesn't care about Elitch Gardens...

 

Why can't we get a real coaster once in a while? I mean hell I would love a X-Car...

 

Getting the first Half Pipe in the US didn't do it for you?

 

At least SFEG is getting something new this year (new water slides)...some parks aren't even that lucky.

 

Then again it's easy for me to talk since my home park is SFGAdv...
