Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

At risk of being stupider for making a serious reply, no, no one except you cares about Grid or even knows who he is.

 

Joker is the arch-nemesis of one of the biggest names in comic books. Joker has been portrayed in numerous TV shows and movies, too many to list.

Grid is the enemy of a 5-rate, also-ran, superhero who has appeared in one TV show and 2 movies, ever. Grid himself has been in zero movies, ever.

 

Be happy Grid got the mention he did on the Cyborg-themed rides that exist. Rides that only exist with that theme, mind you, because they've run out of real DC superheros to theme rides after.

Cyborg is a fucking A-lister in DC's eyes and he has been in many more TV shows than just Teen Titans. He's a member of the goddamn Justice League. Grid has been in a few video games and he will likely appear in the upcoming Cyborg movie. I'd rather have a Grid ride teaching the public who he is, just like how Cyborg is getting more and more prominence these days which was the REAL reason Six Flags themed rides after him.

 

And now you're gonna go after me because I said I wanted a Black Vulcan ride. Black Vulcan is nostalgic for all the people who watched Cartoon Network in its heyday and all the 40-50 somethings who watched Saturday morning cartoons. It can work.

You are very disturbed, seek help. You're welcome.

^pretty sure there are significant wetlands issues with developing that northern piece of the property.....not that it can’t be done but it would need to work financially....they have a lot of space there that definitely could be used for a new Superman type ride.....they need to demo Goliath and flashback and put in a coaster there.....there’s also potential in that dead zone between cat woman and Riddler.....might be big enough for a coaster and could take advantage of the elevation change between the two.....

I would love to see Blizzard River getting replaced with a Max Force type ride. Although it's probably not going to happen anytime soon. As for Goliath, I'm sorry but that ride NEED TO GO! It's been going to shit ever since they got the new trains.

^ I agree. Even though I rarely ride Blizzard River, it's extremely popular.

 

This park has gotten some great additions as of late. I still think they need to put something in the water park first before they get another coaster. I think it has been 7-8 years at this point since Hurricane Harbor got anything.

Or they could do a massive refurbishment like Wildwood did with the Nor Easter

Hey now...they already somehow magically cured Mind Eraser of all its ills, lets not get too carried away. It would take some kind of act of God to get goliath running smoothly again.

Hey check out the Banana Splits at SFNE. I never knew about this; it's from years ago as the Cyclone is still the Cyclone (I loved that ride, btw!) This popped up on my youtube probably after looking at Banana Splits videos after the movie came out (liked it) and the news of Coney Island in Cincinnati. Those 2 searches spit this out! The Banana Splits original intro was shot at Coney Island, as well as SFOTexas... With one episode shot at Kings Island years later. Getting off topic... but that's what youtube does!

(Off topic) I had no idea what the Banana Splits were, but upon some research this movie thing sounds awesome:

 

The plot follows a family attending a taping of The Banana Splits television series, but trying to survive when Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper and Snorky become murderous upon learning of the cancellation of their show, starting a killing spree around the studio.

^Good deal. Just a note: this is a direct-to-video low budget/goofy movie. Right up my alley - but not for everyone. I'd suggest watching some old Banana Splits episodes to get to know them; this movie is probably biggest with people close to my age. When I was little, the Brady Bunch was always on; as old as it already was, it was great. The Banana Splits were even older than the Brady Bunch! Seriously dated, but great stuff.

 

 

A new topic might be in order

Minutes from the Agawam Town Board confirm a ride will be removed for Supergirl. It doesn't say Kryptonite Kollider, but it makes too much sense.

 

Meeting Minutes

 

Maybe they'll remove Goliath and put Kryptonite Kollider in its spot...since it doesnt look way out of place on a much larger pad or anything.

Was at the park for fright fest on Saturday, lines for food were crazy and lines to get the maze passes were mobbed. We were in the main line when you walk down main street and the guy was directing people to other locations so we went to the location by the midnight mansion haunt. There was only one person handling all the sales so the line didn't move and we ended up moving back to the main street line which moved way faster.

 

Haunts themselves seemed a little lacking in the scares and I'm normally very easily scared. The props were amazing though and my favorite maze was the tales of terror one since it was all based on stories like 3 little pigs, hansel and gretel. The circus 3D was actually really boring and I hate clowns so I was surprised.

 

Overall, it was pretty good and I do want to go again and VIP was seriously necessary to hit all 5 mazes.

So the park was mobbed, lines for food were crazy, lines to get maze passes were mobbed, it was chaotic and unorganized, the Haunts were lacking scares and actually really boring.... but overall it was pretty good?

Lol I know it's dumb but it wasn't terrible. Yes, lines were bad for everything and haunts were boring but I had a good night and that's all that matters. At least I didn't have to pay to get in, then I'd be pissed.
