Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I read through the topic but didn't notice any mention of the 200 degree stall. I can only imagine how odd (but still fun) the lateral G's are going to be in that spot.

 

 

Again, sorry if it's been discussed at length already. Personally I'd call it the ride's signature element so I'd actually be pretty surprised if I was the first to bring it up.

I really doubt if this new Cyclone will be as good as the one they tore down by looking at the layout. Would you not agree?

You know, I respect everyone's opinion, but posts liks these I just really don't understand. No matter what your taste in coasters is, I don't see a single part of the new (and improved) Wicked Cyclone that looks worse than the Cyclone currently being deconstructed.

Honestly, if you want people to understand your view, can you tell us specifically what about this ride looks worse than its predecessor? Could it be the previously airtime-less hills, under-banked, sluggish turns, or the reprofiled underwhelming valley of the first drop? I just don't get it. Seriously, can someone provide some insight?

He said, "by looking at the layout." What about the new layout looks worse? Nostalgia has nothing to do with layout and everything to do with memories. Will Wicked Cyclone create worse memories due to the new layout that is inherently worse than the current state of the Cyclone?

It was talked about a little a page or two back. I agree, I think it will be the ride's biggest defining moment, mainly for its uniqueness. I doubt it will feel like a "stall" the same way Goliath's does due to how short it is, looks to have more in common with the "sort of upside down" moment on Outlaw Run, but I can't wait to try it first hand. Especially going through the wood structure, should be amazing.

The main difference between Goliath And WC's stalls besides Goliath's obvious size difference, is that Cyclone's roll will go another 20 degrees so you are actually further around than in a "normal" zero g stall. I think this element, the outward airtime hill, and the alternating banked airtime hills will be what makes this coaster wicked . The airtime and smoothness claims are bold but I believe it.

 

RMC... The savior has finally come !

Remember people, this is a RMC crew building this, not some crew SF hired off the street. Don't even bring up Goliath last year either. Considering they started in September, the fact they had the ride completed by June is quite remarkable.

 

Exactly. RMC has experience with topper track on woodies, so I do actually think this can get done on time considering the rate this is going up. I'm not saying opening day, but sometime in the spring ballpark. You ^^ can call me crazy, but I think this could be built on time.

SFNE usually does a good job of getting their new rides open for Memorial Day weekend. Goliath, GCG, and NESS opened exactly when they were supposed to and BP's late opening was only a week or two later than planned due to the transition/seal between the capsule and slide not being smooth enough as it was injuring the initial testers. I'm confident WC will be no exception.

Thank god this park wasn't voted one of the Friendliest parks in the country again. That was the most ridiculous thing to ever come out of the Golden Ticket awards and that's saying something.

Ikr it's my home park and the staff is not friendly at all, except for maybe a few of them

 

That's the funny thing. They have some of the rudest staff of any park anywhere. If they had a golden ticket award for the rudest and worst staff and they won I would have no complaints. I would be shocked if they didn't win that award actually.
