Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Any idea when the coaster may open? I know the official word is "Summer 2015", but the current construction progress and the weather delays make me wonder if they are still on schedule. Any chances it might be open on Memorial Day?

Last I heard was they are trying their best to open it in mid-April.

They could finish track work two weeks before opening if they we're really hustling. Goliath last year was topped off what, two weeks before opening? That said they're nowhere near track completion. I'd be surprised if it's open anytime before Memorial Day.

Even if the weather was cooperating up in Massachusetts, there's no way they'd open up the new ride in April. Six Flags MO is to (try) and open up their new additions during Memorial Day weekend.

Goliath was topped off on May 16th and it opened on June 19th I believe.

Yes, but Goliath also suffered set backs in testing due to the polyurethane wheels disintegrating during the course, a problem they had even on Media Day. This will be the second or third I-Box with Nylon Wheels (depending on weather or not TC opens 1st). The last piece of track was put in place on Medusa on May 23rd and the the ride opened to the public on June 14th. So they really only need 3 weeks to test, maybe less since this one won't be a prototype (in regards to the wheel type and trains on I-box track) anymore. Honestly, painting the structure is going to be more of a setback, because that is dependent on there being good weather.

It will be open before that^.

 

They have a lot of work done, and the weather is finally slowing down for them.

 

Hope so. But the weather up there was a killer this year, I'm surprised they made as much progress as they have, but they got off to a relatively early start so it makes sense.
