Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

That's oddly my Birthday. I guess Six Flags wants to give RMC enough time to do Iron Cyclone? and Colossus Steel Coaster?

 

Well, there's a good chance one of them will be torn down to make way for a brand new RMC wooden coaster.

 

 

For the Cyclone, Just follow the IR method. Restore the famous drop, add a barrel roll, and steel camelbacks.

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

I was just annoyed because I was trying to understand the parks efforts of wanting to make the big announcement and I knew about the leak this morning buy I wanted the park to have all the glory for once but whatever,

But while we are on the subject it has been hinted at by park executives that the park may be doing something more of a prototype than the normal I Box with a lift hill, if you know what I'm hinting at..... It would be a kill two birds with one stone opportunity for the park

OH MY GOODNESS!!! Fantasy has become reality!

By the way, has anyone considered a prototype idea like a cable lift or maybe even an electromagnetic lift hill similar to the one on Maverick. I know this idea sounds a little ridiculous nut if you think about it, the steel rails would be plenty strong to support that kind of stress and if it's an electromagnetic lift hill, they would really be killing two birds with one stone.

I didn't mean a different type of lift, I meant no need for a lift, meaning a launched hybrid, something that RMC has been working on

Yeah, I think you are right. That would be a fantastic edition to the park considering it would be a world first, a huge publicity magnet, and it really bring some life back into the old thing. By the way, if you look on YouTube, there's a guy who has used No Limits to simulate what the redesign might look like...

The barrel roll drop with lots of overbanks and an inversion here and there. I think this has a lot of potential.

How does "lots of overbanks and an inversion here and there" have a lot of potential? If B&M or Intamin made a steel coaster like that we would call it "average".

^You know, I've always thought about that too. If a company like Intamin or Mack made Goliath at SFGA, it seems as if it wouldn't get as much praise as it would if it were a wooden coaster. I may be wrong, but I've always wondered how the reactions of coaster enthusiasts would be different if the coaster was all steel, even if it had an identical layout.

I meant that the cyclone as it is has a lot of potential. Theres a lot for RMC to work with. That was what I meant.

Is anyone concerned that it will be demolished for good?

 

If it is it would most likely be replaced, this isn't Rolling Thunder or SFGrAdv for that matter.
