Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

That's a bummer that the track pieces are red rather than something unique like blue but it is understandable that RMC wants to make their "brand" recognizable.

I also would rather see another color. Still, not going to complain.

That's because someone is a little to block happy over at TPR, got blocked from commenting and liking pics on their Facebook last week lol

And congrats. Now you are banned from the forum. Look kids, this is an example of "natural selection" at work! You've now learned something today on TPR!

They didn't try that hard to hide the fact RMC was transforming this coaster. Sooner or later all Six Flags will have an RMC.

Yeah, RMC's are amazing and unique coasters right now, but just imagine in a few years when just about every park has one, they wont be unique anymore.

Hmm, I never thought of that. I think they will always be amazing, and fun. Depending on design, although they will be unique to the Six Flags chain. ( Unless, they are added to most U.S. theme and amusement parks )

Although I understand where you are coming from, they aren't even close to clones. If there was a park with all 5 of the current coasters RMC has created, we'd all go crazy. They are all different IMO. Now if we had a park with 5 Batman the Rides in it, we'd all shoot ourselves. I hope you understand what i'm trying to get at. Even though they are I-Box, each ride is completely different.

That's sort of what I was saying, it all depends on design.

Six Flags New England Review

 

7/10

I was at SFNE last week on Tuesday

 

I was disappointed on how all the rides at the park closed around 30 minutes before the park closed. I wanted to ride Bizzaro one last time and get a ride on the Sky Screamer. Sadly i did neither... Do they always do this? And is the park planning on doing anything to Goliath's train? There so rough and it's a shame that it rides like that.

 

x1 Thunderbolt- 3/10 - I rode it in the last row and got decent air time. It hurt so much when my body went flying and hit the buzz bars.

 

x1 Pandamonium- 6/10 - very smooth ride and my first Gerstlaur spinner. I liked it a lot and I would definitely ride it again. I only had time for one ride but it seemed really good. It would be nicer if it was a little bigger but I guess they were a little tight on space.

 

x1 Batman The Dark Knight- 7/10 - I have now completed all the B&M Floorless coasters on the East Coast! I thought this one was a weak ride even in the last row. It even had a strong B&M rattle and also had one of the longest lines in the park. Probably my least favorite B&M Floorless on the east coast.

 

x2 Bizzaro- 10/10 - amazing coaster! It totally exceeded my expectations! Sadly the audio was not running but the mist was. I came with high expectations and the coaster surpassed them. It blew away Millennium Force and wasn't quite as good as SkyRush at Hershey park but it still had amazing air time and it is way better in the last row then the front. The front gives you nice speed but the last row throws you like a rag doll. Amazing amazing coaster!

 

x3 Goliath- 9/10 - Goliath is a great coaster and a coaster that I have been looking forward to for a long time! It had great drops and very strong g-forces. But the train rattle like no tomorrow. It had a really bad rattle at the bottom of the loops and it was very uncomfortable at certain points. The first time I rode it I had my hands up and my back slammed against the back of the seat and I felt a pain that I have never felt on any other coaster. It felt as if my spine got hit with a baseball or something like that. Going backwards isn't as bad as going forwards but it still is pretty bad. I only got to ride in the last row all three times I rode the coaster because they have assigned seating. Maybe it would have been better in the front. Always make sure you sit on the left side of the train for a smoother ride and the inside seats also provide a smoother ride.

 

x1 Boomerang- 6/10 - it was my third boomerang and they all feel the same. It's an okay ride.

 

x1 Scream- 6/10 - the drop felt kind of week because it's an S&S drop tower. I much prefer the Intamin drop towers.

 

x1 Mind Eraser- 6/10 - just your basic vekoma slc. It was smoother then the other slc's that I have been on. It's not as bad as a ride as people say it is.

 

x1- Catwomens Whip- 4/10 - it has to have the longest coaster train I have ever seen. I rode in the last row and it dragged me around the track at a nice speed.

 

The park is good but I'm not in a hurry to rush back and visit it again. If they add more standout rides and if Iron Cyclone is really good then there may be a chance of me coming back...

Six Flags New England Review

This must be a new policy but since it's Six Flags New England this surprises me in no way.

 

And is the park planning on doing anything to Goliath's train? There so rough and it's a shame that it rides like that.

 

Nope. Even though the old train provided a smooth and enjoyable ride experience and these are extremely painful they are planning to keep these. They spent money on a new train that resulted in the ride being closed for half a season, didn't increase capacity and made the best ride in the park one of the worst rides in the park. This new train has no visible upside. If they would have left the ride alone it would be much better, wouldn't have been closed for half of last year and it would have saved them money on a new train. It's mind boggling really, but most decisions this park makes are.

 

I rode it in the last row and got decent air time. It hurt so much when my body went flying and hit the buzz bars.

I'll never understand why some people think this ride is rough. It's one of the smoothest wood coasters I've ever ridden and always has been. Oh well, one less person in line I guess

 

Let me get this straight though... you actually think Thunderbolt is the worst coaster in the park? Worse than Flashback, Mind Eraser, Goliath and the family coaster? Everyone's entitled to their opinion but this is a good opportunity to remind everyone that drugs are bad... mkay.

On another forum, a person was banned from SFNE today for taking a picture of a roller coaster. More info soon...

 

EDIT: He was OFF PARK PROPERTY, across the street, and took a pic of Cyclone. He was then banned.

 

What? He was banned from the park? For life? It's not like the project is a secret anymore... does SFNE have any legal right to do this?

 

EDIT - Nevermind, it was a year-long ban.
