Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Let's see if SFNE can make it a perfect 0 for 3 when it comes to putting new trains on their coasters to "improve the ride experience".

 

I mean can they really make Mind Eraser any worse.

 

This is a good move. Removes the headbanging and protects the headsets if the VR is added. With the vest restraints, I could actually ride Kentucky Kingdom's SLC three times in a row.

They aren't the same as the Kentucky Kingdom trains. Those are Kumbak, these are Vekoma.

I don't necessarily mind who the vest restraints are from. Just adding vest restraints from anyone is an upgrade.

Are these new restraints on Mind Eraser the same vests as what's on The Great Nor'easter? Do we not have a better picture?

 

I love all of the updates that the park keeps putting out. Here's another.

Isn't this the exact same photo you posted two days ago?

So are these just new restraints or entirely new trains? (I'm sorry I'm only half listening.)

 

The vests on TGNE are very comfortable so that's a plus. The new trains they installed in 2008 were awesome for a while and I always defended TGNE as a good ride. However, as evidenced by my rides in 2014-16, it did not detract from the jerky, headache-inducing movements of the train eventually starting to track very poorly.

 

Admittedly I've never ridden SFNE's SLC - but while this might help in the short run, its likely only gonna be a temporary fix.

Mind Eraser isn't too bad to begin with, so this will only improve it.

Just cannot be thankful enough that VR was removed from Superman.

 

Considering I'll finally be visiting this park this season with this ride one of my two main reasons, me freaking too.

The restraints on Skyrush are probably the worst of any coaster I've ridden, but it's such an awesome ride that it doesn't matter

 

The thing with Skyrush is that the restraints CAN get tight and uncomfortable, but at lease you are very open and free. On Superman, it feels like a solid piece of metal that sits just above your knees on your lower femur, and when you get airtime, it's like they're trying to break your femur in half. Maybe I'm the wrong height/body shape, but they are probably my all-time least favorite restraints.

Great news! Would love to see Six Flags roll these out to their other SLCs if all goes well.

 

 

Eh, I'd rather just see SF remove all of their SLC's from the chain lol!

 

 

And have them replaced with Beer Gardens, Cannabis Shops, and Frozen Yogurt Stands (The last one for Tea Totaller's like me)
