Can anyone enlighten me on how long the lines are for wicked cyclone and superman. I'm visiting the park this coming weekend for two days I believe.

Look back at posts from Labor Day weekend the past few years... That'll give you an idea of what to expect...

I'm only going to say this once...

 

Tomorrow is "Six Flags Announcements" day. We will be posting the announcement as soon as the materials are available to us.

 

PLEASE DO NOT POST ANY LINKS OR IMAGES TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT BEFORE TPR DOES!

 

Anyone who does this will be banned forever from Theme Park Review.

 

Let me explain...

 

Posting the new ride information before we can do it actually creates MORE WORK for us as most of the time people who come on our forum and post info about a new ride will do a crappy job of it and then we have to not only do the work we are going to do to make a proper post about the new ride, but also clean up the garbage posts that people make.

 

No one here will get any extra points or look any "cooler" for being "first" to post the information. We aren't about being first we are about having good quality content. Please respect that. Thank you.

Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day weekend is usually very busy. Superman and Cyclone will probably have upwards of an hour wait thru most of the day.

HARLEY QUINN Spinsanity to Debut at Six Flags New England

Giant Pendulum Ride Coming in 2018

 

Agawam, MA. — August 31, 2017 —Six Flags New England, the Thrill Capital of New England, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment, today announced its newest attraction, HARLEY QUINN Spinsanity, to open in spring 2018. Inspired by The Joker’s partner-in-crime, this ride promises to deliver epic thrills each time guests experience this villainous, new addition.

 

“Innovation is part of the Six Flags DNA and we deliver new, groundbreaking attractions every season at Six Flags New England,” said Park President John Winkler. “HARLEY QUINN is an iconic DC Super-Villain and we are excited to add this action-packed thrill ride with her name next to THE JOKER, BATMAN, and SUPERMAN in our extremely popular line-up of DC branded attractions.”

 

HARLEY QUINN Spinsanity is an extreme pendulum ride that will swing guests back and forth, higher and higher, at up to 70 miles per hour on a dizzying journey that will leave riders feeling as wild and out of control as HARLEY QUINN herself.

HARLEY QUINN Spinsanity highlights include:

 

 40 riders will be powered at speeds of nearly 70 miles per hour;

 The ride swings back and forth while rotating counterclockwise; and

 As guests swing higher and higher, they will experience a feeling of weightlessness at

147 feet in the air before plunging down from 15 stories.

 

HARLEY QUINN Spinsanity will be located near the park’s newest attraction, THE JOKER 4D Free Fly Coaster, which opened earlier this year.

^ They're completely different rides. The Huss ones focus on spinning while these ones are all about the swinging and airtime.

 

The ride's name is perfect considering the ride's location next to Joker. The ride's placement is amazing and the ride is going to look absolutely massive walking towards the South End. Kennywood's version was down for all my visit this year and the one in Texas went down before I boarded, so I hope I just got extremely unlucky there and that this will have good uptime because Riddler Revenge was one of the best of the genre when I finally was able to get on it (I still prefer MaXair but this is very close).

So super jealous. I want one of these @ Great Adv so bad.

 

I'll definitely be back up to this park with this stellar addition. Congrats to the locals!

Yeah I was thinking how fortunate we've been with the New England Sky Screamer, Wicked Cyclone, Fireball, Joker, and now the giant discovery all in the past 5 years. As someone who spends 95% of the time in the ride park, this has really helped round out their ride collection.

 

It's very early, but I have to think the water park is getting something next year after the streak of dry additions.

Yeah that's definitely the old spot of the Tea Cups. Coasterbill noticed a few pages back that the Tea Cups were left of the Holiday in the Park ride list, so it was largely suspected this is where Harley Quinn would go.

 

I just hope the Tea Cups will still be at the park next year in another spot since those things spin like crazy.

I dont know whats behind Buzzsaw, but since thats rumored to go, could they move them there? Obviously Buzzsaw is smaller, but I dont know whats behind it.

The antique cars are directly behind Buzzsaw, so I don't quite think they could fit the ride there.

 

I still support adding a ride inside Superman's turnaround, but don't see that happening. Maybe the plot to the left of Mind Eraser could fit the Tea Cups? I know that's near a hill though and I forget how quickly the hill starts.

This is where you and I disagree. I 've ridden maXair at CP on several occasions and I much prefer RR. The seating is much less cumbersome and restrictive on RR. I also get much better air on RR, I'm not a big fan of spinning as I tend to get sick.

I agree the giant discovery restraints are better and less restrictive than MaXair. The 4 max swings on Riddler Revenge have slightly better air than any of the MaXair swings; however, those are the only swings with air. MaXair had far more swings with air, which is why I prefer it.

So if I got this right, tl;dr Giant Discoveries accelerate too slowly, Giant Frisbees accelerate well but don't have as good air?

At least based on my experience, the Giant Discoveries take a while to get going but their max swings beat the Huss Giant Frisbees, so yes. The non-full swings on the Huss ones give air while they don't on the Zamperla one.

 

We're talking the difference of a 9/10 kind of ride vs. a 10/10 kind of ride.
