Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Lying in bed this morning I had a revelation about the cyclone... We're looking at Orange track with a gray structure, and many tweets about Warnings and Shelter in place...

 

We've seen this idea once before from SF...

 

 

Could we see them completely rename the ride? Loose the cyclone all together?

Another "Apocalypse" coaster?

Goliath was taken.

 

Here we go again with Six Flags overusing a name that doesn't involve a DC Comics superhero or villain!

Two things...

 

1. It's actually SMARTER for them to overuse a name that doesn't involve a DC Comics character since there are no additional licensing fees involved.

 

2. While I get that people don't like it when Six Flags reuses names, no one seems to complain when companies like Disney or Legoland does it. How many Space Mountains and Dragon's do we have in the world?

 

Look, I get it. You want a more original name or theme. But let's also remember this is Six Flags we are talking about. Personally, if it means they spend less money on creative for a name that none of us would really give a crap about anyway, and 99% of their guests would never know that "Goliath" also appears in several other parks, I'd rather they save that money across the chain and spend it on putting in another ride at one of their parks.

 

I think the majority of you guys know I'm right.

^O.K. I know that Six Flags is big and overusing ride names like "Goliath", "Pandemonium", "Viper", "DeJa Vu", "Mind Eraser", and now "Apocalypse" is going to join Six Flags' list of overused ride names. Maybe I shouldn't have made a big deal of it!

I didn't realize Apocalypse at SFA had such a cool sign....

 

Back on topic, I don't think that's a terrible name at all and it could have some cool theming to boot. Robb already covered this above, but having all these trademarks and licensed merchandise tie-ins is expensive, and Six Flags has built a brand on their highly recognizable names. They're regional theme parks so the overlap is not particularly bad, and most members of the GP have no idea there are four Goliaths or six Supermans, etc.

 

As long as the ride isn't called "Drop Tower," "Flight Deck," "Thunderhawk" (ahem Cedar Fair) or "Wile E. Coyote's Wild Woody" I am unconcerned.

Oh I get that, and it makes sense for Six Flags to reuse names. My jab was that they were just going down the list of names they used, but yes you are right. And in all fairness, Apocalypse isn't that bad of a name (compared to some other names for rides I've seen, and not just at Six Flags).

 

Part of me wants the Cyclone name to be retained (New England history and all that) but I'm not originally from NE so it doesn't really make a difference at least for me.

 

Really as long as it's not "Apocalyptic Cyclone" I'm fine with it.

I ran it through an anagram generator, just the letters that are scrambled. 62,501 results.

So far I have these words or combos Steel Storm, doom, new, iron, RMC steel, twister. I still have

 

d c m o n w g i i i to fit into the code if it were steel storm. Not using the generator just a pencil but I suspect if it's not the name of the coaster it could be a hint at what it is... There's a chance if we decode it , it would not be the name but the machine type itself which we already know.

 

You cannot spell the words New England, apocalypse, Cyclone, or Warning

(Obviously) These 3 i's are killing me but I love puzzles, riddles and codes! Beats the hell out of SFFTs stupid game

 

There's no a in the scramble, not sure where you two are seeing it...

 

Lots of smart people on here, use your noodles!
