Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I remember when we all thought Goliath's addition spelled the end of Flashback. Oh times have changed.

 

They need to tear down Goliath and Flashback and put something sweet in.....there’s a good chunk of space there if Goliath and Flashback are gone.....

I was at the park yesterday and luckily was asked to be on the test run for the commercial for Cyborg: Hyperdrive. The queue is surprisingly highly themed for other things seen previously for things in SFNE. The ride takes place within Star Labs and it’s just a Chance Freestyle. There are screens around the lab explaining some sort of story but it was quiet and relatively inaudible; I’m also hoping that the animation gets some sort of update before it opens, because it is currently really bad. The queue for the ride is very short it’s just a cattlepen behind the gift shop, so I would expect opening weekend to have some lines outside the building. That is another thing, the entrance to the ride is a little obscure being off to the side of the building. The ride itself was enjoyable! It was in the dark with lasers and lights, animation and dialogue; but once again you could not hear any of the dialogue. Another strange thing about the building itself was the garage door which led to outside. Looking at the front of Star Labs there is a garage door which if opened leads right into the attraction. So this attraction that takes place in the dark is not actually in the dark because of the beams of light that glare through the garage door. Also, when the attraction reaches its maximum angle (I guess) you are blinded whenever you reach the ceiling as you are confronted with rows of LED lights right in your face. The building seemed like it was just able to fit the ride. Sorry that this is jumbled and seems to relatively bash the ride. Overall, great ride but a little underwhelming. Hope I didn’t spoil the ride for you all. Any other questions just ask!

Don't worry. They have The Grid in this new ride. Turns out the screens and effects were off for the commercial shoot. I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR GRID'S VOICE

She is free to express her opinion even if the rest of us don't care or understand. The badgering of those with unpopular opinions only leads to flame wars.

What is the actual reason Goliath has been closed so much? Is it one thing or just an S-show of problems keeping it down? We were there last Sunday and it was running but we didn’t ride it.....just watching it go through the boomerang you could see the seats rattling so hard....and when it goes backwards through the boomerang I swear it’s not gonna make it - looks so slow

It can usually run down to 40 degrees during Fright Fest but I'm not sure what the start up temperature is. Silverwood's has an insanely high temperature limit but that's because they don't have an evacuation platform in the cobra roll like New England does. It's the only coaster in the park that ever closes when the temperature gets too low when it's been running all day. It also doesn't operate in the rain or on any day ending in a Y.

 

As far as the mechanical issues that it has, I don't know and I don't care because the ride sucks anyway. I'd rather ride Flashback.
