Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

WC and TC are both RMC creations. And that's really where the comparison ends for me. One is a tightly wound intense machine. The other just looks insanely fun. So I have to laugh every time a big fan if either ride takes a pot shot at the other. They couldn't be farther away from each other so ultimately who wins that battle? The 0.5 percent that actually get to ride both? Because other than that I can't imagine that both won't please the hell out of their perspective fanbase.

It looks like it's going to be fun regardless of the fact that it's just one big right turn.

WC's layout is actually more of a figure-8 type as there are left turns scattered about and right turns as well.

 

I love how the layout actually follows the path of the original Cyclone.

 

In other new, Spring is starting to arrive in New England.

True they've been at it for a while, but they had some crazy delays with the brutal weather. Every time I've seen updates I'm extremely impressed with how much they're able to build at a short rate of time. I wouldn't say it's taking forever, but I can see it feeling that way if you're as excited as I am to ride it this summer!

Once this opens, it will be interesting in a few years to see where people flock to when the park opens. While this isn't as tall as Bizarro, it looks like it's going to give the park one of the top 1-2 roller coaster punches in the world.

Cyclone's going to be such an amazing ride. I really hope I can make a trip down there.

I think Wicked Twister's layout is a bit more creative too.

 

Absolutely! I mean... an impulse coaster right on the beach with not one but (wait for it) (wait for it)... TWO twists! Now that's creativity

That back spike is really awesome though....

Haha!

I hadn't noticed that.

The straightaway section coming out of the station is just brilliant. I bet it was intentionally designed like this to really accentuate the sensation of speed for riders.

Here's a pretty random thought...Six Flags appears to like the concept of the Soarin' Eagle zipline, what with the installation in the safari at Great Adventure as well as the upcoming Fiesta Texas ride. Wouldn't it be something if SFNE received one as a replacement to the recently-closed New England Skyway?

 

Think about it...reuse the station closest to Cyclone for boarding. Conveniently, if you follow the path of the Skyway and continue past the opposite station, you run directly into the Scream! tower, which could theoretically be used to attach the high end of the zip line to.

 

Just a thought.

I love the idea, but I'm sure they are liability issues with attaching one manufacturer's ride to another. But we can hope.

ehhh... just build it and assume it'll all work out. That's the tried and true Six Flags method when connecting drop rides with other attractions. The state couldn't possibly have any issues with it.

The Nor' Easter was AMAZING this year. The park was so great to us!

Jen said that the track should be complete within the next two weeks. The ride looks INSANE.

Youre referring to Wicked Cyclone, correct? I'm not sure that would be accurate, considering the track is just over halfway through after months of construction.

 

Then again maybe I'm wrong and they're picking up the pace with some decent weather.

The ride looks absolutely incredible in person, pictures never do anything justice. Also, in most pictures it looks really red but today I actually saw orange haha.

 

Lots o' track

 

Hello there

 

 

The park also confirmed the change to the 3rd turn, the second turn in the triple turn sequence is now an outwards banking airtime hill.

 

 

 

 

Awesome track section here.

 

Can somebody say airtime?

 

 

Muhahaha!
