Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Anyone else check out the food and brew festival? Pretty good deals by six flags standards and some of the food is actually pretty good. Huge beer variety although some of the kegs are getting warm today.

No but I saw a photo SFNE Posted, I didn't know it was happening, they didn't advertise it

Yeah pretty sure the only place I heard of it was on their FB page. I feel like a lot of people in the park don't even notice it's going on.

Glad to hear that there are so many parks starting to do the food and beer fests! Hope that it's a success, although it sounds as if they should have marketed this a little bit more on the front end?

 

Edit: just Googled it and it came right up with their website link:

 

Food and Beer

 

Damn...I hope that CP will offer more like this at their festival. I know that their festival is centered around BBQ, but it would be nice to see other offerings to compliment the BBQ...

I went to it. If you bought your tickets online ahead of time it wasn't a bad deal, $20 for 3 full 12oz beers and 1 4oz sample. They had a bunch of choices spread all over the park.

 

 

Also, what was up with no VR on ME?

 

 

VR ended in like early June I believe. On my visit on June 20th the whole shed area they built to store all the headsets was completely emptied. I heard they wanted to end it before the summer heat as the phones get more temperamental in the heat. VR on zumie in jersey was also over in early June. Seems like a waste to me. Would hope its a sign that maybe their moving on from the fad but I doubt it.

Decided to hit up SFNE for about 2 hours for some Superman rides after a long day at Great Adventure yesterday. I've noticed this recently but why do employees always put people with exit passes in the back car. On one of my rides to day they put an exit pass in the back seat on two straight cycles while I was next to get on the train. Really annoying and seems to be happening a lot recently. I've always thought they should throw exit pass people somewhere in the middle. Ride was running fantastic tho.

At least it's better than the front row which has a longer wait. Lake Compounce is the worst since it seems like every other train on Boulder Dash has someone coming up the exit and they always pick the front. That wouldn't be as big of an issue if they'd run two trains.

Oh wow so much this. I love LC but that used to drive me out of my mind.

Reminds me of being at CP about 10 years ago in line for TTD. They have the split station...I was waiting for the front row for the first train. Instead of splitting exit groups between the two stations they kept sending people to the first station. They held the front row 3 times while I was in line for it and the ride ended up going down for 2 hours when I was 2 trains away from boarding. I sat there and waited but it put a very sour taste in my mouth that I would've made it before the breakdown otherwise, and likely also would've made it if they split groups between the two stations.

 

When I was at Superman Sunday the only exit group I saw come up while I was in the station got put in the middle of the train.

Stopped by the park for a bit last night for some Superman and Wicked Cyclone. I don't know what's been going on with WC recently but it hasn't felt as good as it did at the beginning of the year. Felt a little bit slower in the 2nd half. Superman was running amazing and I know it's a hugely unpopular opinion but Superman shits all over WC imo, at least recently it has.

"Shits all over WC"...yet you have them right next to each other in your top 5 in your sig lol. Both coasters are amazing but I feel WC is the more intense, faster paced ride with a bit more variety in elements and far more comfortable trains. Superman was my #1 before Toro was built so I'm definitely not knocking it, just prefer WC.

OK maybe I should've worded it better, recently at least in my experience WC hasn't been running that great and while Superman has been brilliant so recently it's kinda gotten shit on by Superman. At the beginning of the year it was very close and I wouldn't have been able to choose between them. But now, idk my recent WC rides have been kinda slow especially after the first outward banked hill. But I'm definitely nitpicking, I ride it so much I notice stuff most people wouldn't.

I was at SFNE today. The park was very busy, but I got to ride Wicked Cyclone. I was in the front row, first train of the day. It was blah... I then rode it 4 more times in the last row, and better. This is my least favorite RMC remake. I've been on NTAG, IR, (both in Texas) and TC (Magic Mountain). This one doesn't hold a candle to any of those 3 RMC's. I've got a feeling Mean Streak will be my fav at Cedar Point when that's complete.

 

One other important and disappointing note. Superman was down all day today. I left at 5. They were working on the motor / chain lift at the top all day...

That's too bad about both rides. WC is an interesting case. It appears to be extremely tempermental in terms of ride experience. On both my trips it was neck-and-neck with El Toro as my favorite coaster out of 148. A lot of people have it ranked among the best RMC's, and others have it ranked among the worst. I've heard similar things with Storm Chaser. Apparently ever since they switched wheels from last year it has been running far better in the 2nd half of its course.

Of the RMC's I've been on (6), Wicked Cyclone is in the middle but it's still a top 10 steel for me. On a slow day, the train peters out on the last few hills after the last zero g roll but it still amazing to that point. Then 2 years ago, they had a vibration issue with the trains but I haven't experienced that issue this year. For reference, I rode Storm Chaser last year and that one hauled through the course. I rank it below WiCy though since it is missing the insane RMC first drop. The barrel roll drop is cool, but I prefer that first drop.

 

Shame about Superman being down. Hopefully they can get it back up and running soon.

I rode Superman last night and on my last ride there was a puff of smoke off the top of the lift right before the train dropped and it smelt like something was burning. That's probably what caused it being down today. Too add onto that the lift hill lights burnt out too and it looks hilariously stupid.

Sorry for the bad quality but yeah the lights are dead. Did the same thing last year

That doesn't sound good. Wasn't Saturday night season pass holder ERT night too?

Yes it was and I noticed it on the 2nd to last train of the night. They were supposed to have another one for Superman tonight too but it got moved to WC because STR was down.

So weird story..... I was riding Superman today and during the final bunny hop the guy in front of me blew chucks and I got hit with some of...... Straight to the face. Literally went to the bathroom and stuck my face under the sink for 5 minutes. Then went home and sat in the shower for an hour. Have a Six Flags day!

That's probably my biggest nightmare in this hobby. I sat in puke once when I was younger, that was gnarly enough.

 

My condolences.
