Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I have never seen anyone stay on even when the park was dead. I think it's just a cooperation policy.

Yeah that's a lie, maybe he lapped it 14 times..

 

I didn't see it, but if you've got a crew of bored teenagers who have witnessed a nearly-empty station for the entire day, it's conceivable that asking them for consecutive laps could have been met with a "Sure, go ahead" if enough of the crew didn't care one way or the other.

I don't know if this is a chain or park policy but in GAdv, I regularly get re-rides without walking around on dead days. Me and my friend got 14 rides in a row on El Toro without getting off last week. This is the one thing I really wish CF parks would do and it annoys the shit out of me that they make you walk around on dead days. Absolutely no reason for it when no one is there.

Don't know about all CF parks, but King's Dominion was allowing re-rides when I was there on a quiet, rainy day last week, at least on a couple of the coasters. I don't know if the ride ops were breaking policy or what, but they were definitely letting people stay on Anaconda and the wooden coasters.

KD normally allows rerides, but they don't allow more than 2 in a row on i305, cuz its so dang intense!

Oh, no bad tone at all! I'm quite excited for the project! I think the size of the plot of land, and the ideas you could do with the current layout, we could be looking at a definite contender to take over as best ride in the park!

At this point, I would almost go so far as to say any RMC project on the books can be considered a contender to be one of the best rides in the world. Not that they necessarily are or Cyclone will be, but I think they all have that potential.

I was at Six Flags Magic Mountain a few years back when the ride ops were literally begging people to stay on rides like Riddler's Revenge and Goliath where they were having trouble getting the minimum number of people required for them to dispatch the train.

I really want to believe that SFNE will get an RMC makeover for Cyclone! Cyclone has always had an interesting layout and first drop. Lots of wide turns for over banks. I hope we get the inverting first drop like MexiMedusa.

 

I can see it now, bright white structure, bright red rails and some shining new American Flag rolling stock.

 

Steel Cyclone in 2015? Yesssss!

I hope they announce that they're taking the new Goliath train, melting it down, burying it somewhere on the other side of the world and then salting the earth so nothing will ever grow there.

 

... But essentially confirming Iron Cyclone would be cool too.

I don't think SFNE will replace Twister with anything big. It's a pretty small pad that's out of the way. SFNE has never shown much interest in replacing the rides it removes... if the empty pad isn't blatantly obvious a replacement seems really unlikely.

While I'm not a big fan of swinging ships, that would be a nice addition in Twister's spot.

 

Also, does the park still have Nightwing and Rodeo on site? They reinstalled Joker's Wildcard after it was removed for a few years, so maybe they could do the same thing with one of those two rides.

Dang it, I was hoping for an inverting flat or sorts so the park can finally regain what they lost. Also, putting a roll on the drop would be hard to pull off, not to mention it is fantastic as is. Slowing the ride down by adding a roll would take all the fun out of it and the coaster would loose its claim to fame.
