Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Read what I said above you. I said I preferred the track that was played during media day. I grew to enjoy the one they play now but it is pointless. I have to agree. And riding Bizarro without the audio makes it Superman yes, but after riding it a lot I grew bored of the same old Superman. But thats just my opinion. Complain to the park that you don't like the audio. They do have the other version hanging around as it was played for a few weeks in the middle of the summer.

Don't complain too much about the audio...it could be A LOT worse!

 

1. You could have sacrificed a back seat for audio.

2. You could have sacrificed a back seat for audio that no longer works.

3. YOU HAVE AN AMAZING INTAMIN HYPER!!!!

^ Agreed. Do the SFNE locals not appreciate that a Bizarro with no audio is still BETTER THAN 99% OF ALL THE STEEL COASTERS IN THE WORLD???

 

Sorry, I can't shed a tear for any of you.

^You both do have a point. I don't think either of you will like it as much with the new restraints though. The reason I was complaining was because my ride was full of crackling and popping which was annoying.

Completely agree! It was my #1 steel but has definitely fallen since becoming Bizarro. Everything is great EXCEPT the restraints...but they take away a lot. They are very bulky and pin you farther up on your leg, making the airtime painful.

This is going to be my last complaint post. But in the fan call I was the one who mentioned the lap bars on Bizarro. Just look at these pictures and see if you can see the difference.

 

To me and people on SFNEOnline it looks like they changed the restraints right before opening. As there are pictures from that audio system website showing a train on the transfer track without restraints. Anyone know why they might have changed them?

One of the ten new cabana's

 

Wave pool

 

The new Johnny Rockets

 

 

 

I personally don't like the wraps on Pandemonium. But they look decent on Flashback, it matches Flashbacks new colors.

I'm going to SFNE for the first time next week - either Tuesday or Wednesday. I have a few questions:

 

1. The weather forecast says scattered thunderstorms for both tues and wed. I know it's early in the week and the forecast is likely to change but I have heard some horror stories of the park shutting down due to incoming rain. Is this going to be a problem?

 

2. If I'm going on a weekday next week, are the crowds going to be big? I went to SFGAdv this past wednesday and there were no crowds at all. Hopefully the same can be said of NE

 

3. Is the park generally safe? Again I have heard some stories/reviews of how the crowds can be extremely rude and intimidating. But I know I have heard a lot of the same thing about GAdv and haven't really had many problems with the people there.

 

Thanks

I've never seen the park actually close if it isn't actually raining. Typically if there is constant light rain they will stay open until 2-3 in the afternoon, and they will give out rain checks if you ask (despite the signs that say "no rain-checks").

As of yesterday, Friday June 19, 2010, Larry Litton, the park president has been released from SFNE. An interim president is now in place and is rumored have worked in management when the park was Riverside.

 

JDo217:

1. If theirs lightening within 30 miles they shut everything down.

 

2. Crowds shouldn't be bad at all.

 

3. Yeah the parks generally safe, other than the basketballs that people bounce around haha. Their is some line cutting which for some reason seems to be getting worse. They used to have security posted on life guard chairs in the queues.

Thanks for the responses guys. What worries me is that Tuesday and Wednesday have forecasted isolated thunderstorms. We're kind of driving a long way and will be kind of annoyed if we won't be able to ride anything. But I know weather forecasts sucks; I was at GAdv the other day and even that day, the forecast was 60% chance of tstorms and rain but it was basically sunny/partly cloudly all day. Go figure

If the park closes you could always head over to the Basketball Hall of Fame in nearby Springfield, or check out one of the many museums in the area (the Springfield Museum of Fine Arts currently has an exhibit on Lego art that I've heard great things about).

Actually, the rides are divided into four groups and each group closes based on proximity of lightning. "Alpha" rides are the only ones that close when lightning is at the 30-mile range. As you'd expect, these are the coasters and other tall rides.
