Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

So I was going to wait for my first post to be a Trip Report as I am currently at Six Flags New England for three days with my family, but I figured I would give an update on some of the rides in the park. Yesterday, Goliath (shocker), Harley Quinn, and Crime Wave were all down. Not sure if Crime Wave was down all day, but was a bummer to see Harley Quinn sitting there without anyone attempting to get it running. Any idea what is up with it?

 

Oh, and here is me super excited getting to the park early only to find out Wicked Cyclone didn’t open for another hour after opening!

I got a ride in on Harley Quinn shortly after a breakdown on Tuesday afternoon, but just after I rode it went down for what ended up being the rest of the night. Not sure what was up. They tested it a few times before giving up.

 

Also noticed a ladder underneath Crime Wave so something might be up with that too.

Hi I just wanted to give a quick update based on the last review.

 

I was at the park yesterday and Harley Quinn was still down, Superman had the one train but it wasn't busy so the wait wasn't to bad. Goliath has a sign up closed for refurbishment and Crime Wave is completely dismantled. I wasn't able to get any info maybe someone else knows.

 

Wicked Cyclone was down for a bit so didn't get to ride it. We spent most of the day in the water park which was not that crowded. I don't even try to go on the weekends anymore. It is just way too crowded. The water park was staggering some of the guards and opening the walk through river and pool later. Typhoon is down to one raft. The line was crazy.

 

We have found that eating at the Good Eats Cafe across from JB 's is very good. We enjoy salads and the salad bar is nice. The teens said the pasta and the brisket were good also.

 

Overall a typical day there. I am hoping to get back up a couple more times before school starts. I am glad that my home park is only 45 minutes away.

One train on Superman plus Goliath and Harley Quinn being down in the middle of the summer is a bummer. But luckily it wasn't too crowded for you on a weekday.

 

I'm really horrified to hear how long Superman's line will get on a busy weekend day until that 2nd train comes back.

Typhoon was down to 1 raft? Shouldn't it have like 12 or something? Lol

 

Hi that is what the attendant told my daughter. Actually when we were there last week they only had 3 tubes. She said that two had popped. How does a company like 6 flags not have tube replacements. I have seen the line long before but it was down all flights of stairs at 11:20.

I doubt anyone cares but Kryptonite Kollider is now listed as "Closed for the Season" on the website.

 

But the ride that's completely dismantled and probably on its way to the Big E is just "temporarily closed". Ok...

 

Also when I was there last week seemed like nearly half of the food kiosks were closed. And long lines at the ones that were open. Sad that a park with 2 of the best coasters on the planet is so close yet I can't even bear to go there more than a couple times a season because it's just not fun to go there anymore. There isn't a thing to do in that park that doesn't end up somehow becoming a big hassle. What I'd give to have Knoebels there instead...

I really wonder what's up with Crime Wave if they had to completely dismantle it.

 

At least Goliath is still listed as open.

 

Was there today and asked the friendly folks at Nightwing - cuz they looked like they were bored - what’s up with Crime Wave.....said it’s been down about two weeks and waiting for a part that required basically full dismantle to replace.....they said they think it’ll be back though.....

 

So here’s my trip report for the day:

 

1. Again weather big factor today....heavy rain and cloud cover in the morning knocked down crowd size enormously....arrived about 1:30....rain was gone and the sun was starting to come out....it was hot and humid though so lots of drinks, shade, and AC when required....

 

2. Flash Pass system was down......now we don’t normally buy FP since SFNE is our home park and we’re so close - 20 min - that to leave cuz of crowds isn’t a big deal for us....we’ll just come back later....however it mattered because we are Diamond Elite members and when I went to get my skip the line passes the sign on the FP office said go to member services where they issued gold.....we got 6 passes good any time on any ride and each pass is good for 4 people....I was like “damn is that a new thing?”....she was like “no it’s just cuz FP system is down.....I figure since they couldn’t scan and print the skip the line passes like they usually do they resorted to the other more awesome passes....

 

I left the park with 4 of them since the lines were so short I decided these were better used another day....I’m gonna drive up there tomorrow to see if the system is still down and try to grab 8 of those suckers.....then we’ll just leave - I expect the crowd to be terrible tomorrow.....

 

3. Wicked Cyclone ran great but they were running one train.....lame.....they were doing that a few weeks ago too....wtf - I mean we waited to get on the front car so there was that but still

 

4. Superman ran great too but guess what? Red train only - I guess that’s the theme this year....hey guys come ride two of the best coasters on the planet but wait forever cuz we can’t gwt two trains running....man

 

5. It was hot AF.....I said that already.....

 

6. Today we were able to get in the “reservation only” parking without a reservation....2nd time that’s happened this year....my guess is the weather prevented a lot of folks with reservations from coming so the security guy let me in....it clearly said No Reservation on my ticket they printed when I stopped at the booth....

 

7. Discovered Pandemonium has a “singles line”.....that’s not marked....got on multiple rides in a row without having to use those passes I picked up earlier....

 

8. Had a great ride on Joker....only second time on....that middle section really tosses you around....

 

9. Thunderbolt broke down - we were next to get on and the train just stopped just out of the station and before the lift hill.....the operator was all “Uhhhh it’s gonna be a while”.....lol....we left - a supervisor, two paramedics, and two maintenance guys showed up and they were gonna initially just push the train to the lift hill and let them ride it but a couple a folks wanted off so it set in motion a whol protocol to get passengers off a ride where there’s basically nowhere for people to go.....granted that location isn’t the most dangerous place but still....the maintenance guy was like “I can’t send a train if people want to get off”.....this one woman really was pissed and probably scared and wanted off....

 

10. Snacks need to be extended to 30 min before closing or something....not 8:30 in the height of the season....dumb

 

11. Still staying away from HQ and SS.....I probably have to be really heated to go on those and probably would vomit.....so I won’t....lol

 

12. Speaking of vomit - somebody barfed on Scrambler and it was closed when me and my son tried to ride....

 

That’s it.....I’ll report back how my scheme tomorrow works out.....

Well I really wanted to get up there today and try to get those any time rides up to 4 riders - with the FP system down - but never made it.....just didn’t work out....still have four left though from yesterday and will conserve as needed....I’m sure the crowd up there in Agawam was insane today....

.....So uh anyways, I visited the park for the first time ever today. It was very crowded so flash pass was a must. Well worth the $100 a piece.

Superman is one of the best coasters I've ever been on. It's just so amazing. Superman, Fury, and Millennium are all sooooo close to each other that it's impossible to choose a favorite.

Wicked Cyclone is great but I thought a little slow. My least favorite RMC but even a "bad" RMC is an amazing ride.

Overall we were impressed with the overall look of the park. Very pretty park with great photo ops all over. I must've taken over 100 pictures of Superman.

Operations weren't as bad as expected but still pretty slow.

The only real complaint we had about the park was the food service. Holy sh*t it was terrible. I understand it's a Six Flags park and good food service should never be expected but this was the worst I've ever seen. It took a half hour to get an order of fries. Was going to get a burger but saw ants all over the counter where they prep the food. I got a Philly Cheesesteak instead and it was actually really good even though I waited forever for it.

 

But, all in all, a great day. Looking forward to coming back down the road sometime to get more divine rides on Superman.

SFNE is our home Park and I feel blessed to have such an epic coaster like Superman to ride over and over.....the view alone from the top looking right over the CT River pushes this thing to the top IMO.....I haven’t been on Fury or MF but I’m not so sure they have the view this thing offers.....one of the problems this year is they’ve only been running one train.....same for your visit?

 

Anyway I think the way Wicked Cyclone runs “slow” is part of its deal.....it’s a compact RMC and really throws a lot at you in a short distance.....the further back the better......that ride has also suffered from one train season which is such a bummer.....

 

If you’re in the area today - Saturday the 10th - I’d try to get back to the park......the weather looks perfect for knocking down crowds.....we only go when rain is in the forecast...... literally have walked onto Superman.....

 

Anyway nice report.......may be heading up today.....we risk that they may close the park if attendance is down but we’re members and only 20 min away so whatever......

Also unless maybe the key gets stuck or something, we're all perfectly OK with you ending each of your sentences with one period. Just one is all we need.
