Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I haven’t been on Fury or MF but I’m not so sure they have the view this thing offers

 

LOL WUT

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.

 

That’s not bad.....and I like my periods....been posting like that in many forums for years..................lolz

Yep still one train on my visit. Obviously something still wrong with it since the wait got to be over 2 hours and kept only the one train on. Hopefully it's fixed soon... I can't imagine a fright fest Saturday with only one train.

 

Dude it’s so maddening.....it’s been like that for the whole season I think.....Wixked Cyclone too

Posting like this.... makes you look like everyone's racist uncle........ who always tags you in fake news posts...... and Turtleboy Sports articles if it's in New England........

 

Honestly, I've been posting on various message boards since I was in 4th grade back in the early 2000s (yes, I lied about my age to post on them back then, sue me, it was sixteen years ago), and literally no one ever posted like that, not even the older members whose message board usage harked back to Usenet, so I honestly don't know where excessive and unnecessary ellipses came from.

^meh.....people do it....you may not....it’s fine

 

You’re like the only one ever that compared me to a racist because of it....lol

 

Hoping SFNE is still open later today....gonna take a quick trip up there and see if I can get on Superman for a couple night rides....the rain may close the park though....IDK yet

Yeah, if we're talking about best views from coasters in America Cedar Point pretty much dominates that list. Eventually I suppose you might break it up with Wild Eagle and a few pier parks or some sh*t.

Wildfire. That view from about 600 feet above the lake...holy crap.

"Racist uncle ellipses" was actually a term that a friend of mine came up with to refer to it that came from her own uncle's very prolific and usually very stupid posts in comments sections on FB, and yes, he does use an incredible amount of ellipses and it just kind of stuck, and we now use it to refer to any usage of ellipses in that manner, even perfectly benign posts.

 

Back on topic, going on a heavily overcast day with intermittent rain is a double-edged sword. On one hand, the crowds were incredibly thin and the coasters flew, but on the other hand, it was disgustingly humid out and getting stuck in line whenever the rain did pick back up was a rough time. Spinsanity definitely lived up to the hype, however, as those descents once it's reached its highest point are something that you really do feel.

OK thats fine man - whatever - here's my report from today......

 

IT WAS THE MOST EPIC 4 HRS AT SFNE EVER!!!!!

 

I mean you are right - you take a chance that you're gonna get dumped on while in line and it was definitely humid and uncomfortable AF but dude.......it only rained on us for 20 min of the 4 hours we were there and we just ate dinner during that rain......we walked onto Pandemonium 3 times.....after the rain me and my daughter walked onto Wicked Cyclone and we rode the front car.....it ran real nice and I was reminded how amazing that front car ride is despite being a bit on the "slow" side - clearly the back is the place on this ride but that unobstructed view over the drop is amazing......we hopped onto Catwomans Whip twice on our way to Superman and then hopped onto Gotham City - cuz nobody was on it......then my daughter and I rode back to back night rides on Superman......AMAZING.....then we left.....it was a short trip but packed a punch and worked out......we live close enough that if we have to leave cuz its crowded or they close the for "bad weather" we don't care.....loved it

 

Superman Comments: Blue train is still just sitting there in storage......not sure whats going on.....didn't matter obviously cuz the crowd was so low but still it stinks they aren't running it.....

 

Wicked Cyclone: Also just running one train.....why?

 

Skip the Line Passes thing: So the last two times we have gone up - including tonight - we were directed to Member Services to get our Skip The Line passes.....we are Diamond Elite members - all four of us - so we get 8 total STL passes per visit......today when we got up to Member Services the person there spilled the beans that when there is a cloudy and rainy forecast they will often just close down the Flash Pass service.....knowing the crowds won't justify buying the FP.....thing is when they do that Member Services isn't connected to Flash Pass so they don't scan your pass and then print the STL pass....they just give you a 1 time 1 ride up to 4 riders pass according to your membership.....so for us we got 8 of those....its fukin gold and can be used any time rather than just on the day of the visit which is the normal for the STL passes......so we got them and didn't use them - just save them for later.....I already had 4 from our previous visit so I think I'm in good shape for the rest of the season.....it also means theres a weakness in the way they handle bad weather days relative to the Diamond memberships......any time theres a forecast for bad weather and I think they will close down the FP service I could just drive up there and snag those 8 passes from Member Services....and then just leave and save them for later....anyway.....thats all

 

A great day indeed!!!!!

It was mostly just damp after I got off of Superman up until I left (which was when it was starting to rain again), but yes, I have no idea what was up with the one-train operations on everything and excruciatingly slow dispatches (except for the Joker's crew, they were pretty good about banging them out in a timely fashion). Also decided to give the Mind Eraser/Riddler's Revenge a go just for the hell of it, and yeah, that was what you call "lipstick on a pig". The new restraints DO help, but it doesn't change the fact that the train still shakes like you're driving down an average road in Springfield in late April.

^when were you there yesterday? We went like 6:00 to 9:45 and it was perfect - humid AF but only rained briefly for 20 min

 

Also Riddler certainly does shake a lot but it’s not that bad....the new restraints make it better

 

They have to get blue train running on Supe....god that stinks

Ah.....ya maybe....we grabbed our skip the line passes right away at member services and then went right to Pandemonium for two rides then we ate cuz it rained.....

 

How long were you there and how was the rain? I was amazed that they were still open at 6:00...in Hartford it was all rainy and dreary all day but I noticed on radar it was drier to the north....anyway twice I’ve been there on wet days and they shut it down at 3:00....they blamed the weather but it was due to low attendance no question....it’s definitely been a wetter summer....maybe for HITP it won’t be so cold this year

We had a negative experience with our skip the line passes at this park. We have the diamond elite memberships as well. The skip the line passes at six flags parks are good for up to 4 people(at least the many six flags parks we have been to). At this park, they were only for the 1 person. We bought our diamond elite memberships for the skip the line passes and discounts. Since we have 2 kids, it was a great deal as we could all ride together with the skip the line pass. Now at New England, it was only for a single rider. That threw a wrench in our plans.

 

The weather policy at this park blows as well. One of the days we were there, it was sunny in the morning and a rain storm moved in around 2 or so. They announced at 2:30 that they were closing the park due to weather. So we left to go see a movie around 3pm, came out of the movie to find a sunny day with not a cloud in the sky for the remainder of the day. The crowds were very light that day, so I'm sure that had a lot to do with there decision to close. There was no reason weather wise that they could not have stayed open. A passing storm is a weak excuse. It sucked for us as we drove all the way from Michigan.

It was funny how they shut the park down before you could use your dinning plan at 4pm as well.

^Gotta wonder what’s up with the parks financials if they can’t get their big boy ride running two trains....combined with their other big boy rode Wicked Cyclone also on one train.....it’s not like it’s October and the end of the season is near....come on guys

Actually, sorry. Griffon wins because you end up getting a birds eye view of a giant brewery. We're both wrong.

Silver Dollar City's Wildfire also loses to its namesake over in Sweden.

 

Back to SFNE, I definitely don't think the park intended for Superman to be down to one train. Usually they're good about running 2 trains on it all season if they're available. Wicked Cyclone is the one they sometimes swap to one train operations early in the season, but it's odd to be down to 1 now.

All of New England seems to be having a "one train only" season - same issues are occurring with Boulder Dash at Lake Compounce (and have been for over a year). Been an extremely frustrating season for coaster enthusiasts up here

Lake Compounce's "issues" are likely just because the park is owned by Parques Reunidos which is a horrible company that doesn't care.

 

As for Six Flags, isn't Superman the only coaster that generally runs 2 trains and isn't currently doing so?

Riddler, pandamonium. Wicked cyclone and superman were the only coasters running more than one train when we visited. Oh...and the mouse coaster.

No doubt. I so want to go to Sweden.

^Riddler was running two trains when we were there last week.....Pandemonium usually has like two out on the track while loading one....WC is odd that it’s going one train which really slows it down....Superman obviously is a problem....Batman usually two and has been all summer....only Thunderbolt has just one train ever....at least since we’ve been going since Fall 2015
