Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Went to the park yesterday thought it would be empty with little cars in the parking lot was let down with the hundreds of buses and school kids. Harley Quinn is amazing and a great addition to the park, its much faster and goes higher than you think. Superman ran great, wicked cyclone ran okay and also had a really good talk with another enthusiast. Thunderbolt had no trims on and the ending to the ride is absolutely insane. Still problems with long lines for food but its getting better.

Stopped at the park yesterday and today. Harley Quinn is amazing and definitely is my favorite flat in the park now. Superman ran phenomenal yesterday and then was just other worldly tonight. Wicked Cyclone wasn’t running good at all. There was a really weird grinding noise coming from the wheels in the back of the orange train and it was really chugging through the 2nd half of the ride. Unfortunate because prior to about 2 weeks ago it was running amazingly well.

Just out of curiousity, how does S:TR’s ride compare to S:ROS @SFA’s restrains? I’ve heard many complaints about the SFNE S:TR but I haven’t gotten a good explanation of what makes them bad.

 

Like others have said, they are extremely bulky and sit mid-thigh. I also think there is very little leg/knee room, and I'm only 5'10".

 

This is probably an unpopular opinion, but I GREATLY prefer Skyrush's lap bars. They also sit mid-thigh, but they seem to conform to the body a little more comfortably. They get tight, but it's not an awkward, painful tight like on Superman. At least for me...

Glad to hear Harley Quinn is excellent. I figured as much after riding the one at Over Texas, but good to hear to confirm.

And I figured as much after riding the one at SFDK. Of the pendulum ride types, this is one of the ones that seems to be consistently good, and is one of the more forceful models by far.

IDK....we went today mostly for water which was a bit of a disaster with the crowds and heat and long food lines but when they closed the water side at 7pm my 11 yr old was all “daddy let’s ride wicked cyclone before we go” And I was all “heck ya let’s go”.....it felt great.....first ride on it since last year.....wait was about 25 min....shorter than the other coasters after the water side closed.....all in all the WC ride was the highlight of the visit....pretty sure I prefer cooler wetter days to cut down on the crowds.....I once rode Superman in blinding rain....then they closed the park 15 min after we got off the ride....immensely more enjoyable to put up with annoying weatherthan annoying crowds.....goes true too for cold weather during HITP.....cold rides on Batman were so worth it....4 rides in 15 min

I haven’t ridden enough coasters to know if it’s running great or not.....today Wicked Cyclone seemed awesome.....we were in the middle of the train which is nice sometimes cuz it eliminates the hold back in the front and the pull o we in the back and gives a freer ride.....loved it.....love knowing the ride enough to twist my body into the direction changes.....amazing.....tht ride really is something....my 11 yr old really loved it too.....

I'm at the park now and had to park in the very back of the second lot. Despite that, most ride lines are manageable outside of Harley Quinn so I'm guessing most people are at Hurricane Harbor.

 

Harley Quinn has a posted hour wait and ran a really long cycle. It's definitely the park's best flat now. The only thing I noticed is it's a complete free-for-all when it comes to groups trying to sit together.

 

I also noticed the park renamed their slingshot Nightwing to fit into the Gotham City area.

 

Lastly, Goliath is still closed. I don't think it has operated yet this year unless I'm mistaken.

Do you think they'll eventually junk Boomerang & Goliath (I know the latter has gotten really rough after the new trains from Premier Rides were installed . . . why that is, I don't know)?

 

If so, what goes in it's place . . . . Raptor or T Rex?

I wouldn't be mad about seeing Goliath go. I was there last week and there was no train to be seen. A piece of track was removed from the station as well but I assume that's how they get the train on and off.

Hopefully they are trying to fix that awful train. I dont see any other reason for it to be gone so long, last year they got Goliath opened by Memorial Day.

I would not have a single issue with the park ripping out both Goliath and Flashback and replacing it with a single, awesome coaster. It's unlikely the park would do this soon, especially both at once, but both rides (particularly Goliath) sit on some prime real estate for the park. If maintenance costs get high enough and ridership drops, it wouldn't surprised me.

 

I really hated all three of the Vekomas when I went in 2016, but apparently Mind Eraser/Riddler is actually pretty good now so that just leaves two. Luckily Wicked Cyclone and Superman are both awesome enough to make up for the park's crappy rides.

And what's funny is I actually really liked Deja Vu at SFMM the few times I rode it. But those new Premier trains on Goliath are just awful in every way. I'm excited to try Aftershock at Silverwood whenever I bite the bullet and decide to drive up there, apparently that one is the best of the bunch.

Goliath was formerly DeJavu at SFMM, there must've been a reason they, SFGA and SFOG didn't want these coasters anymore.

 

I think part of the reason is that they thought SFNE's shorter operating season would help.

 

Hasn't Silverwood actually gotten their's to be reliable?
