Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I might get crap for this but whatever, just my personal opinion.

 

Those are the worst looking coaster trains I have ever seen in my life.

 

You're not alone on this... I think they are awful. Not to mention I showed my partner this photo:

and he said "Why is there a lead car in the middle of the train??"

 

I said "There's not... It's . . . Six Flags." Then explained everything that has happened from this coaster being Superman, then not Superman and losing seats, then back to Superman and not gaining the previously existing but lost seats...

I'm at the park now. There were some opening day hiccups. The park was listed to open online at 10, but they didn't let people in until 10:15ish and Superman opened at 10:45 for season pass holders. Unfortunately it is just running one train today (the red one is still on the brake run with dummies).

 

The ride looks amazing in its old red glory. The park added some daily planet newspaper snippets along the ride's course and installed speakers next to the brake run and lift hill that plays the Superman theme on loop. The restraint molding looks different but it feels the same as Bizarro.

 

The ride itself was great as ever. I got 1 ride in the backseat and the coaster reminded me why it's one of the best. So I know the question you all want to hear- Superman or Bizarro. The ride didn't feel much different, but that isn't a bad thing since Bizarro was still fantastic. Maybe it's smoother but I honestly couldn't tell.

 

Overall, the relaunch looks to be a success from a marketing standpoint and it should get better when VR comes (from a ride standpoint, operations standpoint to be determined). Superman is a much more recognizable name and the ride looks much better in red. And as always it's one heck of a coaster.

Red looks much better!

The first train made it back.

The red train isn't being used today and you can see the dummies in the back.

I know they've reused this logo at other parks but it never gets old.

Hi Superman!

The S is back!

The new molding looks and feels different. Less bulky.

S shields remain.

In other news, Wicked Cyclone seems to be over its vibration issues! I've ridden it in both the blue and orange trains and they were absolutely hauling through the course and it was glass smooth. I think the ride may be even faster than it was at the start of last season since I got ejector air on the final few hills. I think it has taken back the spot as my favorite coaster.

I can also say that Wicked Cyclone was completely hauling today, it was quiet, and was glass smooth. If you have only been on it when it was in rattling butt massage mode, you better get out to the park asap before SFNE decides to mess it up again. (hopefully they don't) I was getting ejector airtime on the last hills, it was amazing.

But did those trains actually lose seats though? I thought they received new trains back in 2009 that didn't have seats there, as that was where the audio box was?

Here are some pics of Fireball, I love how it looks and it's cool that they made the loading platform ground level.

And here is one of Rockin Rodeo. It was pretty tame and had very small seats but it had some decent forces. It doesn't tilt though which I feel like It would be better if it did.

I'm excited to spend the weekend here for my first visit to the park. I'm hoping the lines aren't too bad but with 2 days there should easily be able to get multiple rides on everything. Really looking forward to getting on wicked cyclone and superman
