Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

99% sure it is going in the south end of the park. I believe they are going to be doing some rearranging with the flats including a removal of one unfortunately. Very excited about this though.

 

As long as its not Buzzsaw I'm OK with that. Also, I'm really really really jealous Great Adv is likely not getting one of these.

 

I don't think Buzzsaw is going to be there next year.. One of the other flats is likely going to move to that spot to make room for the frisbee in the center of the south end area.

I have a feeling this would likely have a DC theme to either Riddler or Wonder Woman based on the chain's tendency to reuse names.

 

The rumored placement is down on the South End. They already have 2 Batman themed rides there, so adding the same Riddler theme as SFOT would make sense here. The issue with the South End is space. If they move the Tea Cups elsewhere in the park (I hope they don't straight up remove them) and remove the Slingshot, I believe it would fit in that area. Plus it would look great walking down the midway.

An interesting placement that I'd love to see would be inside Superman's turnaround. I don't think this is likely, but I think it would give some really cool views of the river and Superman. I believe there's 1-2 small tress there that would be sacrificed to do this. Then the queue would just need to go over a maintenance road and Superman, the latter of which could give some amazing views.

While I haven't heard anyone mention the ride going in the DC Superhero Land, I could see that being a good spot too. Gotham City Gauntlet currently occupies that big field. I think there would be space on the side closer to Johnny Rockets.

This bothers me since you're generally someone who knows what they're talking about and doesn't just pull things out of their a**. If this is true, that's a real shame but I'd honestly be pretty surprised if it was since it's on the Holiday in the Park ride list. I assume the rumor would be that they would be putting the teacups in it's place?

 

The reason I mention the teacups is because (speaking of the Holiday in the Park ride list) I just discovered a pretty interesting potential clue in that list and that's the fact that slingshot and teacups aren't scheduled to be open. Slingshot may have simply been omitted because it's an upcharge but the Teacups would absolutely, 100% be open for Holiday in the Park and on that list if possible since it's a family ride in a section of the park that's confirmed to be open. That's an odd one and it makes what you're saying about the park moving some flat rides around a lot more likely. There are also rumors about markings around the ride.

 

I think Canobie Coaster's first prediction is spot-on.

^Just hinting at what I heard, I would hate to see it go. From what I have seen this season, it doesn't seem to get a huge line and the cycle seemed to be shortened a lot.

 

I think it's safe to say the tea cups are being moved, possibly to Buzzsaws spot. I think the placement of the ride will either be north to south or west to east. Not sure how large the ride is, but it seems like there is a possibility of Slingshot getting the boot too.

^^ I didn't notice the Tea Cups missing for Holiday in the Park, but that's a very strange one to be omitted based on everything else that is open down in that area. I just hope if the Tea Cups are being removed that they are relocated elsewhere in the park. Those ones are super easy to spin.

 

I definitely can't see a Giant Discovery fitting in Buzzsaw's space. Honestly I don't think many rides would fit in that space since it's bounded by trees, buildings, and the midway. Would the Tea Cups even fit in that space? I don't ride Buzzsaw too often since it makes me queasy (yet Giant Discoveries/frisbees don't, go figure), but it'd be shame to lose a ride that's as forceful as that.

That's a bummer about Buzzsaw. I've seen elsewhere from a somewhat reputable source that it's going. I thought it was one of the best flats in the park to be honest.

I agree completely. I also thought the same kind of ride would have been an awesome replacement for Hang Time at Dorney Park instead of the lame bumper cars they got.

I really hope it goes where slingshot, There should be plenty of room since splash water falls was bigger than the joker. I also hope the tea cups don't get removed. The other rumor I heard was it going where the queue for sky screamer is where catapult used to be. I also hope buzz saw doesn't get removed. But if we look in the past most rides removed from the park were ones that six flags did not buy so it looks like buzz saw is more likely to be on the chopping block than the tea cups.

I'm pretty much in the same place. Most rides that rock back and forth make me super nauseous except for Zamperla Discos and Giant Discoveries. But yeah. I hope they don't just remove the Tea Cups, they are always something that I have to do at a park if they have them. And I hope Buzzsaw gets moved somewhere else in the park, too. There used to be one at Celebration City (which was one of my home parks) and it was a ton of fun. It didn't do a whole lot of just rocking back and forth so I really liked it.

Buzzsaw is either staying where it is or being removed. Buzzsaw's location makes it hard to fit a lot of rides so moving it wouldn't make much sense.

 

Usually I am fine with diskos too, but the one at Lake Compounce really made me nautious earlier this year.

Great addition! The one I rode at SFOT was a really thrilling ride and seemed to be very popular. I just hope this doesn't have a lot of downtime. Riddler went down a few times during my visit to SFOT and Black Widow was down for the night at Kennywood when I went, but maybe I just have bad luck.

 

Like SFDK ad La Ronde, I think the park can definitely keep Tomahawk as well. Tomahawk is more about spinning and the Giant Discoveries are more about the swinging.

 

Riddler Revenge, I'm glad to say, doesn't have a lot of downtime. However, RR generally has the longest line of any ride in the park. What's worse, hordes of flash pass users tend to bring the regular queue line to a near standstill. You can expect wait times in excess of an hour on most days, 2 hours on weekends.

Going through an old book "Fun Land USA," I found a picture of the "Loop Coaster" (later named Black Widow) running with a 3 car train! I've seen an Arrow shuttle run with 4, 5, and 6 car trains, but never 3! Interesting. Thought I would share.

It is a long weekend and the weather looks beautiful, so I'd expect larger than usual crowds on a Friday.

 

Also, the high is only 70 degrees on Friday so I think a lot of people that usually go to the water park may stay on the ride side.
