Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Well Ty I didn't see you there (I was wearing a green Wachusett Mtn sweatshirt, and with two other people), but I happened to be taking pictures also, and I got things to say about my trip! I'll post my report later today, and I unfortunately got some things to say about Superman... but pictures of Fireball! Stay tuned

 

Edit- couldn't get it up today, so they should be up tomorrow or later than that

Houdini 1x

 

I was suprised at how many elements this one doesn't have compared to the great adventure one. It was missing so many things that make the ride great to begin with. I'm not sure which one was made first. The audio was also way to low.

I thought the concept was awesome actually. But it felt more of a cheesy carnival ride than in a Six Flags park. If they made some upgrades to the audio and the whole story part of it I think this would be a must do ride.

Have you been on the one at great adventure? That one has so many more elements then new England. That's why I'm curious if they added things to the great adventure one. I need to look into the history of it a bit more cause I love the great adventure one.

If anything, with all of these TR's coming in, I am glad to see that Superman is in red and blue again. The red track pops so well against a blue sky, it is ridiculous. As for the actual ride experience, from what everyone is saying, in my heart of hearts, I knew they would mess it up somehow, and I am not thrilled about the VR addition either. I am excited to go back and ride Wicked Cyclone though

IDK if any of you guys noticed, but the airtime is really bad compared to last year. Like on the hill after the drop usually you would get airtime before you hit the top and you'd be pulled back down, but I felt it was you get to the top and pop just a bit and kind of fall down quickly and ride the bottom of the hill. It was similar on the others, and I felt serious vibration on/after the overbank (on the S-turn).

 

My theory is because the center of gravity has been put back into its intended position, then you don't float as much as when the speakers added upward force and a higher center of gravity. Also, the intensity isn't really there because there's no music...

I actually disagree completely! I think it depends on where you are seated on the train. I was at the park on Saturday, with all my rides towards the back, and the airtime was as good as always. As for the vibrations, they have been there forever, and are a lot better than they were at the end of last year. I think once the summer weather hits, it will be running great again.

How do you attend media day? Do you get invited, ask, or what? And what time do they hold these kind of things at? I've never understood how it all works, but I'd love to attend one some coming year!

 

I realize I can't go this time, but it's worth asking anyway

How do you attend media day? Usually by car

 

Do you get invited, ask, or what? Magic

 

And what time do they hold these kind of things at? Sometime between 12:01am to 12:00am

 

Pretty accurate. It makes sense, though

Sorry for the double post!!

 

Great day at the park, ride ops were working quite fast (shocker) and we hit every coaster once other than wicked cyclone and superman which we did twice each. Then headed to Lake Compounce.

 

 

We did grab a bit at Eat which was about ten min away. Amazing food and staff. Highly recommended!!!

I appreciate what the park tried to do with Bizarro, but temporary overlays and rethemes just aren't the way to keep coasters like this fresh. If they are good, they can stand on their own for decades without significant changes. I'm glad to see them going back to the Superman theme with this one.
