Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

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.

 

 

Guys, the new logo just got leaked!

I have been looking at some construction pics and I'm beginning to think that the mighty Cyclone will be neutered (I know that's a weird metaphor). I think that an overbanked turn will not be able to handle the speed due to the height change, and there is no sign that there will be an extension of the structure.

I highly doubt they'd spend money to make Cyclone a tamer ride. Especially when they could just build a coaster from scratch for a similar price.

This is RMC we are talking about not B&M, all RMC coaster so far have been some of the best rated rides in the world, I don't think SF would ruin that streak (unless Alan Schilke isn't working on this project)

Well my initial thought was that the forces of the somewhat tight overbanked turn combined with the new height that the coaster is being given could possibly exert extreme g's that could result in anomalies such as black-outs and grey-outs. Any other thoughts as to how they might solve this problem? By the way, if some of you want to see what I am talking about, check out some of the pictures on SFNE online's recent update of the construction.

Who says they can't elevate the turn slightly, on a similar (shorter) level to Goliath at SFGam? I-305 does it at a MUCH higher speed, given a wider radius.

To me, it seems like RMC is the perfect balance. They push the limits, but make sure their rides are "rideable". Not as reckless as Intamin yet more willing to push the boundaries than B&M. The ideal coaster company. I have faith in them, and don't believe we'll see any black outs on this ride.

^Same here. **However**, They seem like a company that really respects the enthusiasts aswell as the general public, and may learn from B&M's "mistakes".

 

In addition, enthusiasts seemed a little less prominent back then (can someone who was an active enthusiast back then correct me if I'm wrong?... Robb maybe?). In this day and age, with the advent of the internet, and RMC able to hear the opinions of everybody, GP and fanboys alike, I have some confidence we will not see another B&M, or Intamin for that matter (going too far to the other extreme).

 

As a side note, I'm not hating on B&M or Intamin in any way. I'm just simply stating my opinion that RMC will most likely learn from past mistakes made by other manufacturers.

Personally, I am not opposed to Intamins insanity, because that's what makes Intamin so special. You can never find rides as crazy as the ones Intamin makes, and that's what makes them so popular.

I really wasn't referring to their insanity and intensity in my previous post, but more the problems related with being that insane lol (ie. Rides being down, complaints from the GP, blackouts etc.).

 

I'd have to say I'm with you though. I personally love rides that are just balls to the walls intense, no matter the manufacturer, hence why I will miss Skyrider at my home park so much when it closes in less than a week.

 

Here's to hoping the Wicked Cyclone is Wicked intense, and lives upto it's new name!

I can't say I'm a huge fan of the way the name sounds; I like Iron Cyclone or Steel Cyclone better, myself, even if it's even more "obvious"...but if it turns out as good as everything else RMC has done, I don't think I'll care too much about the name. Still too bad the rest of the park isn't likely to make a good home for the coaster given its history...but...optimism, right? >.>

None of the admins on sfne online understand why we are blocked.

I'm sure they know EXACTLY why. They aren't stupid.

 

I don't mean to come across rude, but they honestly don't. Our sites would actually like to get along. They have no idea why they are blocked, and other sites are apparently experiencing this. Maybe something happened behind the scenes. But in all honesty, as part of SFNE Online some time ago, we have no idea what's we did wrong. If our sites worked together, I bet this thread would be the most reliable.

Posting about this publicly is really not appropriate. I responded to the comment, fair enough. But if anyone from the site wants to contact me privately, they are more than welcome to.
