Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread

They've done that before. It's basically a staffing move but it's generally on slower days so it works out.

 

It completely makes sense, but I never recall that being on the schedule. In the past I'd show up to the water park only to find the North area closed.

The US will never come close to a 100% take rate for a COVID vaccine. Hell, for the 2018-2019 flu season, only 45% of adults got the flu shot, which has been tested and proven to have minimal side ef

I'm sure that's not the criteria. They'll reopen when the governor arbitrarily decides that they can. There will be no metrics or science involved but there will be a press conference about how they'r

If everyone who enters the gate is a passholder, is it really anything special? -- but in all seriousness that's nice of them to do something like that; those early hours at parks are always the best time to go. *cough cp cough*

 

I'd be curious to see the percentage of passholders vs one day ticket holders on any given weekend. We all know Six Flags practically gives away their season passes but I always wondered what their ticket sales looked like comparatively and how many people end up buying a ticket + parking for the same price as a season pass...

That would definitely be an incentive for me to make sure I have whatever pass qualifies me for it, as long as I thought I'd be likely to visit on days it's offered (and if it's truly worth it considering the rides open and the number of people taking advantage). But since it's open to all passholders, I guess I'm already golden (although my pass is of a non-metallic variety).

With John moving on to Great Adventure here’s the official press release from SF’s announcing Pete Carmichael as the new Park President of SFNE.

 

AGAWAM, MA. ─ January 12, 2018 ─ Peter Carmichael has been named Park President of Six Flags New England, the region’s largest theme park, effective January 1, 2018. He succeeds John Winkler who has taken over as Park President at Six Flags Great Adventure and Hurricane Harbor in New Jersey. The announcement is a homecoming for Carmichael as he served as the Operations Manager & Director at the New England property from 2004-2015. Carmichael is an avid theme park enthusiast with more than 20 years of industry experience.

 

Carmichael most recently served as Park President at Six Flags St. Louis in Missouri. He is committed to providing guests with exceptional thrills and customer service. “I am excited to rejoin New England’s largest theme park,” Carmichael said. ““I am eager to rejoin this experienced and passionate team as we continue to delight our guests with innovative, world-class rides and entertainment like the all-new Holiday in the Park that premiered in winter of 2017.”

 

Carmichael joined Six Flags Entertainment Corporation as an operations intern at Six Flags New England during its branding year in 2000 and launched one of the world’s most lauded steel coasters, SUPERMAN™ the Ride. Throughout his time at the Thrill Capital of New England, Carmichael quickly rose through the ranks, holding a variety of managerial roles including Rides Supervisor, Operations Manager and Operations Director.

 

Carmichael graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Commercial Tourism. During his career, he has participated as an instructor within industry safety seminars and leader within the company on several new initiatives and projects. In his free time, Carmichael enjoys visiting theme parks throughout the country with his family.

Just a quick offseason update. Harley Quinn is on site and it looks like the area is just about ready for vertical construction. Looking forward to another great season! Pics courtesy of and used with permission thanks to SFNE Online.

quote the site where you found the photos, it would be the right thing

Already had permission so the right thing was already done. Added the additional info based on your request.

 

As an FYI I’ve gotten to know the SFNE Online crew and they wanted to have the pics shared so that the TPR forum members could see what’s going on. Don’t really appreciate your assumption that I was trying to hide that fact. I’m not that type of person. I also really appreciate my relationship with Robb and TPR so in an instance like this I don’t look to add outside names when it’s already been approved to share. Hope that makes sense. Thanks.

Don't worry about it, thanks for sharing them (and also thanks, everybody from SFNE Online)!

 

For everyone's benefit - you don't have to go through the usual "used with permission, yadda yadda" disclaimer but you definitely need to say where the photos came from regardless. We're one big sappy family of an enthusiast community, after all. What we do ask is that if you take photos of something yourself, you upload them as attachments to the forum as opposed to another site so we can link back to them in our Park Index.

The teens are already asking when we can start the park again. We are there almost every weekend and then at least twice a week in the summer. We enjoyed Holidays in the Park this year and so glad they are bringing it back. It's nice to live so close to one of their parks.

 

I love the idea of the early entry but if the dining plan lines are any indication of day tickets verses pass holders early entry might not have that big effect. Although it is a nice trial and if it works then they can implement at other parks.

 

Thanks to everyone who posted information and pics!

Quick question for anyone who has been on a giant discovery. I absolutely love the Huss giant frisbees , the only downside for me is that they are extremely tight due to my chest dimensions. For example, I was turned away from KI’s drop zone because of the restraint (well, because of me) but I have no problem with ride restraints some people have trouble with , like Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. Are the restraints a little more giving than the Huss model ? I’m very much looking forward to Harley Quinn. I feel the park is on a great winning streak, and I feel a bit spoiled but extremely gracious to have a B&M , an Intamin, an RMC and a solid handful of flat rides so close by.

^ The Zamperla Giant Discoveries have far less cumbersome restraints than the Huss models. I've ridden both types and Zamperla comes out on top in this department. I've never seen anyone turned away from Riddler Revenge here at SFOT because they were too big.
