Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I love Mind Eraser now. It still feels weird to say that, but it's true. Those new trains are amazing.

 

I agree, my visit to SFNE last year was my first time there but Mind Eraser became my favorite SLC.

Glad they're finding additional revenue sources. I ended up going to the Holiday in the Park Lights event last week.  It felt sort of eerie walking around the park with all the rides sitting idle

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

On RR I especially like the first half and the part where you are flying by the station on your side before heading into that loop......then theres that leg chopper as the train does that clockwise roll.....its really good with those new restraints for sure....I always feel like theres nothing holding me in and theres nothing to grab on to lol

This is definitely one of my fave SLC's. Its a tie right now with the one at Morey's since that one has the new trains/restraints too.

 

I wish both La Ronde and Darien Lake would get them. I like how their SLC's go over the water.

Hey everyone, I have some business travel coming up and I may have a chance to make a quick trip to the park a couple of days. I may only have a few hours each day, for two days. I will be there towards the middle/end of September and I know the park will be on weekend only operations.

 

Any pointers for me and what I should hit for a first time visitor?

 

Thank you!!

If you’re locked in to your days I’d suggest getting there early obviously......if you’re a Diamond member reserve your spot in the Diamond lot now....you won’t be able to after like midnight the previous day.....then once you’re in head to the DC section pronto....get in a couple rides on Supe then after head over to the north section so you can ride the epic RMC Wicked Cyclone.....do it a couple times then head over to Gotham City to get in Riddler, Joner, and Batman....don’t forget Sky Screamer over by Wicked Cyclone before you head to Gotham City....if you’re into sky screamers.....I’m not.....if you can get these rides in before noon you’re having a great day...enjoy

If you don't want to get a Flash Pass, use the single rider lines for Pandemonium and Scream. They're unmarked and you access them by going up the Flash Pass line and telling the grouper at the merge point.

 

Superman has been running one train due to maintenance, so I strongly recommend heading there first. The front row will have a long line, but definitely try it at least once as it's the best seat by far.

 

If you like flipping, try to get the green side on Joker. It usually gives 4 flips while the purple side tends to give just 1-2.

Looks like the queue-times.com page got redesigned for SFNE. Sorted by section now so easier to navigate and all the water park and Halloween stuff is weeded out. Still prefer Cedar Points page where the coasters are all together but this looks nice too.

 

On a queue times note, Batman, Wicked Cyclone, Skyscreamer, Harley Quinn, both mice, and FLASHBACK (!?!) are all posting waits at or just short of an hour. Superman at 130 minutes. Looks like one of the busiest days of the year with the perfect weather (finally) and school starting this week.

^Yikes.....if I got there and wait times were that long I’d turn around.....no way....I also live 25 min away so....feel bad for the folks who plan for a one day visit and have to put up with that....stinks....are they running the Labor Day sale yet? We found a few years ago when we first bought our passes that during the sale tons of people show up to activate....like that whole area between the bridge and security and then the gate is a nightmare of humanity

Are we sure that those times are correct? My experience this summer with just about every Six Flags park's posted wait times has been that you can't rely on it at all. When I went to SFNE early in the season it quoted a 60-minute line for Superman when the reality was that it was at the bottom of the stairs (they were still running both trains then too). Goliath at SFOG posted a 45 minute time when it was a walk-on, same for Twisted Cyclone, which posted 90 minutes. LaRonde's last week said an hour for Goliath and 30 minutes for Vampire, when the former was a station wait and I walked onto the front row of the latter.

 

Great Adventure's last week was slightly more accurate, saying 40 minutes for El Toro (it was about 15-20) and 15 for Nitro (one-train station wait), so still overblown by at least doubling the real wait times.

So if it reopens, anyone wanna take bets on how many full cycles with riders it will make before it goes down for the rest of the season? I'm putting my money on 7, but I'm worried it might be an over estimate.

Futuristic Thrill Ride Coming to Six Flags New England in 2019

Cyborg Debuts a New Dimension of Thrills

 

Agawam, MA. — August 30, 2018 —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 thrilling lineup for the 2019 season. The hi-tech Cyborg attraction, inspired by the DC Super Hero, will premiere in 2019.

 

“Innovation is part of the Six Flags DNA and Cyborg is a groundbreaking, new attraction that delivers an immersive dark ride experience with incredible special effects,” said Park President Pete Carmichael. “Our DC-branded attractions are extremely popular with our guests and we are excited to add this action-packed ride bearing Cyborg’s name to an already epic lineup of DC Super Hero and Super-Villain attractions in our DC Super Hero Adventures area.”

 

The CYBORG attraction is an extreme new dark ride experience. Cyborg invites guests to S.T.A.R. Labs to witness a new technological device when the sentient cybernetic system called THE GRID hacks into the mainframe and takes control of the entire lab. Riders find themselves caught up in the battle, spinning and whirling mercilessly through the air, while Cyborg wrestles to regain control of the enormous machine. This thrilling, new attraction offers 360 degrees of pure, heart-pounding adrenaline.

 

Ride highlights include:

 

· 24 riders sitting in an outward facing position;

 

· Quick acceleration reaching maximum speeds while guests whirl through countless rotations of spinning insanity;

 

· A DC Super Hero story line featuring Cyborg’s battle with an evil DC Super-Villain; and

 

· State-of-the-art lighting and sound effects.

I'm pretty sure this is a Tourbillon ride, like the Cyborg ride at SFGAdv and Harley Quinn Spinsanity at SFOT.

 

I'm curious where it'll be located. I would guess in the DC area with most of the other DC themed rides, but it's getting pretty crowded over there!

The photo looks like a Chance Freestyle like the one Great Escape added this year. Since that'd make Kryptonite (the current wipeout redundant), I'm guessing that may be removed.

 

I'm guessing this will be down near Superman somewhere.

They could either put it in Kryptonite's plot in an entirely new building or they could put it in the Hall of Justice where Joker's Wildcard once was. I'm hoping for the latter since it'd free up a good plot to work with in the future.

 

Having ridden Pandemonium, the Freestyle is an improvement over the standard wipeout and Worlds of Fun's Cyclone Sam's showed me just how awesome these types of rides can be if they're placed indoors with effects. Great addition!
