Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

One name I would be very surprised to see being used is Twister, considering we had a tornado strike Springfield a few years ago, and I still hear about cleanup stories till this day on the evening news.

 

I'm not saying Six Flags won't use Twister (or Tornado or any variation of those two), but I'm not expecting it.

So the park is packed today

Some of the WORST ops I have ever seen

the fp line for bizarro is like almost 50 people long

I don't even know why I'm still in line!

 

CT goes back to school tomorrow. Not sure about Mass. NY has 1 more week left. That's why. I went on a WEEKDAY in late August a few years ago and it was hell.

"Steel Storm Is Coming" leaves behind DKWEIU "We Kid U" ?

 

Just a couple weeks ago I was saying I believe the name would be storm related but no longer Cyclone, which I feel, feels too retro for such a transition. With "New Cyclone" or "Iron Cyclone" being a little reminiscent of last year's RMC projects, I was hoping for a "Storm" name vs. Cyclone, considering we get Hurricanes and severe storms here in New England, Cyclones are the mirrored version of Hurricanes in the opposite hemisphere but don't quote my meteorology...

A cyclone is a humid, low pressure system. It can be anything from a tornado to a section of rainstorms. They usually rotate counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere and clockwise in the southern hemisphere.

 

An anticyclone is the opposite. It's a dry, high pressure system that rotates in the opposite direction of a cyclone.

I thought about heading to the park today but I got a late start and when I checked the forum here and saw the comments about how crowded it was at opening, I decided not to drive from Boston. I did check the season pass site and today was a "bring a friend free" day for season pass holders so I'm sure that may have had something to do with the crowds.

^Six flags has kept the original name in the title of all 5 of their RMC hybrids. It's really not that surprising and they've used five different words in the names (new, iron, steel, wicked and twisted). If any more are converted I'd assume that trend would continue.

 

IMHO wicked is better than new and steel.

Whatever the name I'm willing to bet it will be a wicked pissah ride , guy.

 

The west coast purged my accent but I still get a kick out of hearing others use it. Robb and Elissa hooked me up with fast passed at sfmm, I think he's the only one here to hear it from me as I was new to Cali!

 

I just thing wicked cyclone is a little too close to a certain cedar fair impulse coaster.

Wicked cyclone? Eh, not a fan. They should've gone with steel storm. But I guess they wanted to keep the 'Cyclone' part in the new ride.

I still don't get why everybody loves the name "Steel Storm". In my opinion it is a really lame and boring name.

 

Wicked Cyclone sounds like a great name. But it's not like it really matters. The ride could be named "Poop-Scented Cyclone" and I wouldn't care. It's an RMC, it's gonna be good.
