Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread

Mind Eraser is getting NEW restraints and a HUGE train make-over!!!!1

 

Is this actually happening 100%? If so, I'm beyond excited to try out the new trains, regardless of which style they are!

 

Yup. The park announced it. The restraints will not be like the original ones but they also won't be like the vests at morey's pier. They are going to be a thinner OTSH. But the park made it clear that they are doing major train renovations. They're actually replacing all of the train's seats as well. They promised a much better and more enjoyable ride.

 

I am so excited to see Mind Eraser get some love. It's one of the most intense rides in the park and has the potential of being awesome!

So excited to see that they haven't given up on this one!

Wait. So potentially Mind Eraser will be smoother than Goliath... That really makes my head hurt.

 

It already is. SFNE's ME is really not that bad compared to others. It certainly has it's bad days but most of the time, it's not bad.

Goliath is like getting a jackhammer to your spine.

I'm sorry I'm always so negative with this park (unless I'm talking about Thunderbolt or Wicked Cyclone of course) but this is why.

 

So they're willing to do a complete re-design and overhaul on 2 trains for a terrible coaster that has no potential anyway but they're not willing to put the old train that they already have back on Goliath when the current train is absolutely horrible, caused the ride to be closed for half a year and the beginning of the next year, has not seemed to improve reliability and has made what many people (myself included) considered the best ride in the park, one of the worst thanks to it's unbearable headbanging... even on perfectly flat and straight pieces of track.

 

They already have a train sitting around that would make this ride awesome... but instead of using it and admitting they screwed up they'd rather go out and buy 2 new trains for the piece of crap with no potential on the other side of the park.

I used to remain negative until this year as everything the park is doing seems to show that they really do care about the rides. It has made me regain my hope that the future of this park will be great.

Trains look great!

 

The logo looks a bit blurry on the picture and it is hard for me to make out what it is exactly.

 

Is Vekoma making the new restraints or is the park doing it themselves?

 

 

US park lawyers would never allow a park to modify a manufacturer's restraints.

Wow. Not one but two powerful outside banked airtime hills...how do I get so blessed to potentially have the two best steel coaster airtime machines in my 2 states of residency.

 

THREE outside banked hills!

 

Don't forget the low hill after the big overbank.

Oh my goodness it's a sign from above! Mind Eraser will be receiving new restraints and there's going to be a second outward banked airtime hill! Well by golly it's almost too good to be true. By the way, does anyone think they added that extra piece of airtime due to it not having the predicted amount of airtime? Maybe they just want to ensure their record remains untouched by other parks? It just seems like an odd thing to do this far into construction.

^ I'm sure final designs were decided soon after initial announcement. I don't think they would just change a piece of the layout halfway through construction. And no, I dont think its to make up for lost airtime. Honestly I don't even know what you're talking about; and what record is this? Very confused on this one.
