Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I have no money until the end of school, which is when I start working again. I would love to go earlier, but I don't see it happening until about late May or June. But I usually plan for overcast days, because the crowds are usually down in both the waterpark and the actual park. Does anyone else plan it like that?

^^^Is that your own photo, or did you take it from some other site? If you took it from another site, it would be nice to know where it came from.

 

This is pretty exciting, anything RMC is incredible, and this train (Well, actually this whole ride) is no exception.

SFNE tweeted the picture. You should follow them

 

I don't think construction is completed yet. Track work is probably starting on the rolls. Most of the steel supports are in place for the remaining track I believe so could be testing around the end of April.

Is anyone else worried about the leg restraints potentially ruining the airtime of this ride? I've never been on another RMC and nobody has complained about them yet so I have confidence that it won't be too bad. But the restraints on Bizarro completely kill the airtime on that ride for me and people still seem to think it has some of the best airtime of any coaster. So I just wanna know if this fear is irrational or not. Otherwise the cars look quite beautiful!

I'm not sure how restraints can "kill" airtime... there's very few recent coasters out there where the restraints actually allow you to float out of your seat without making contact with the lap bar or shin bar. That said, my experience with Outlaw run was that the shin bar is uncomfortable, but didn't reduce the airtime in any way. Also, it wasn't nearly as uncomfortable as the Premier shin bars on Superman @ SFDK, and YOLOCoaster @ SFMM.

I didn't find them uncomfortable. In fact if anything, it might make it feel more intense since you (well at least me and I'm not incredibly tall) can't sit normally with your knees at a 90° angle to help 'brace' yourself. And unless you staple yourself into the seat you'll get a little bit of room to float in the seat.

I've never experienced coasters with shin bars to kill the airtime. I have longer legs so the restraints always reach my shins before my lap, so I still have room to float out of my seat a little. But looking at rides like El Toro, the airtime on it is ridiculous, but you are stapled into those trains with not room to move.

I just thought you might want to know this, but six flags is holding an ert for flashback on the 18th. I got the email from six flags just now and it's exclusively for pass holders. I know you guys may already know this, but I thought I might get the word out. It starts after the park opens and goes from 10:30-11:30.

I would never go to a flashback ert, that would be awful. I remember last year I went to a 2 hour ert on Pandy and Ness and it was awesome. There was nobody there but it was annoying because they needed at least 12 people to run Ness so towards the end people just left because they wouldn't run it lol. Pandy was insane too, me an my brother sat on the same side with nobody on the other, and it was spinning like crazy lol.

 

Anyway, here is a new pic fresh from the park!! Beautiful!!
