Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Isn't the theme for the station like an old boat house that looked "weathered by a cyclone?" How does this head get into this? Whatever...it will still be an amazing ride!!!

 

I think it is more like you are the weather god and are bringing destruction via the rollercoaster.

Just found out I might make it up to SFNE this July, and I couldn't be more excited at the prospect to ride Wicked Cyclone.

Is it safe to assume this ride will only be on Platinum flash pass? If so, that's dissapointing, but it makes sense.

^ Far from done. These RMC I-Box conversions take awhile to get completed. They have to get everything precise. This is being done by humans on sight and not by some robot in a factory. The final result will be spectacular and well worth the wait, so just be patient.

 

Yeah, I don't get why some people don't understand this.

I can imagine nothing is getting done. My family lives up in New England (I'm currently studying in the south) and they claim that this is the worst set of snowstorms they've ever seen. Hopefully it doesn't impede progress too bad.

 

We've been getting slammed for almost a month straight, so it's likely that there will be more than a minor delay. It's not just the snow, either - the wind also presents a significant obstacle. I'd be surprised if it's ready before July or even August with the way that things have been going.

It looks good, but the eyes need to shoot laser beams and he needs to breathe fire.

 

The rumor is that the park was looking into this but dropped the idea as the initial plan was to use GPS technology to allow the ride to shoot lasers and fire at the flat rides at pre-determined times throughout the season... destroying a few every year until the park had nothing but coasters.

 

Sadly the park realized this was impractical and decided to go back to doing that manually every offseason.

 

This post did not get nearly as much attention as it deserved.

lol, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

 

Oh and Thunderbolt is back on the website so everyone can relax now (referring to the conversation about 2 pages back). Maybe the park heard that it was a fun family attraction and hit the delete button in a panic but when they realized it was a roller coaster and not a flat they decided it was okay to keep the ride.

 

... or maybe they're just working on the website. I think either explanation is plausible.

So I just went back and rewatched the the Wicked Cyclone rendering POV again, and I'm still amazed at how good this ride looks. The ending (after the double down) looks so twisted and full of airtime it just blows me away. It honestly reminds me of a twisty megalite with wood supports. The one airtime hill that twists back and forth looks so insane that people would mock it for being unrealistic if it were in someone's No Limits creation. If it rides anything like it seems like it will in the renderings, then this could easily be a top 3 coaster.

I would like to believe that the design process for steel/woods at RMC is that they drink seven Monsters and a few cases of Red Bull each and have an out of body experience where they can smell colors. Then, they pass out.

 

The next morning they wake up, take a look at the design and buff it out from there. Whatever they are doing, it seems to be working just fine for them.

 

In other news, anyone have estimates on much longer Flashback is going to stay in the park?

Since I have no realistic chance to get out to CA, again, my first ever RMC experience will have to be here this year.

Which I am A OK with!

 

I just hope Goliath doesn't jerk us around for 2 hours again
