Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I like how all the coffin challenges this year have their unique twists. SFNE is taking that literally with the Wheel of Fright.

 

Per WWLP- Link

 

What does the 30-hour Coffin Challenge entail exactly?

 

According to Six Flags spokesperson Jennifer McGrath, the park introduces the “Wheel of Fright”. The six participants will be required to complete a random selection of challenges every two hours starting at noon throughout their 30-hour ordeal.

 

Some of the new challenges include:

 

  • Being blindfolded
    Riding thrill rides
    Eating insects
    Holding a snake
    Eating baby food and so much more!

 

The one who survives the challenge will receive a check for $600, a pair of 2020 gold season passes, a pair of 2019 haunted house passes, a pair of ride Exit Passes (premium ride access).

Cyborg Hyper Drive was great! Sadly the ride was too loud so I didn't get to hear anything Grid was saying. I liked the spins at the end the best!

Six Flags is fucking cheap. They're trying to have this goddamn themed ride with a storyline and they do the one thing that you shouldn't do in this situation - not turn up the volume. I am going to boycott the chain until they turn the volume up.

I've always been a big advocate for the front row on Superman, but after my rides tonight I think I may like a back a smidge more. The airtime in the spaghetti bowl portion caught me off guard with its strength.

 

I also tried SFNE's haunts for the first time. I've never done them since they're an upcharge ($35) and I never hear anything positive. Since my membership got me a free wristband I gave them a whirl.

 

And wow were they bad. I did Midnight Mansion first and thought that was one of the worst haunts I've ever done. And the sad part was that it was the park's second best haunt. The only one I thought was decent was Aftermath, mostly because the wooded setting really helped the theme of a zombie apocalypse.

Here right now. Very busy as expected. Superman, Riddled, Goliath, and Cyclone all approaching 2 hour lines. Kind of leisurely wandering around hitting small lines like Crime Wave, Kontiki, and Tomahawk. Even Thunderbolts usually trusty 30 minute line is almost an hour.

Is Wicked Cyclone still on one train like yesterday?

 

Yeah...walked up there around 9:30 and the line was almost full. Wouldve been a long wait with one train. It was nice that they put a sign out front explaining that this was occurring.

 

Did get a Superman ride later on tonight. Line died down to the final set of switchback, although had a very quick breakdown and then had to deal with exit passes almost every train. It was hauling tonight for sure.

 

Rode some of the older flats for the first time in years. Got a nice long cycle on Crime Wave. Rode Kontiki for the first time in many years, was very surprised at how smooth it is tracking. Glad theyre taking care of it considering 98% of the park patrons have no idea its even there.

 

Also first time on Tomahawk in many years. Its almost laughable how low to the ground it stays now, but at least they run it at max spin for a good while.

Last time I rode it, it spun moderately and then spun fast the other way for about 5 or 6 swings when it was at max height. Now it spins at that max speed for a good minute but like I said, nowhere close to as high as it used to get. Haven't been on Canobies in a long time either but from what I remember they both spin at about the same speed.

 

Park is closed today so turns out yesterday was the de facto closing day. Glad I got that last Superman ride in.

Anyone who's been there recently, can you tell me if they have the volume up on Cyborg by now? I might go back next year with my brother, and by that time, I shouldn't have to strain to hear "I can't let you do that, Victor."

LMAO those are the usual responses I get from that. My work here is done.

 

I might be going back in 2020 with my brother and we might ride Supergirl. I'm kinda scared :O

 

But what can I say, I hope the audio for Cyborg is turned up by then.

Are we sure the ride list is even up-to-date? It still lists Riddler Revenge as Mind Eraser and Buzzsaw.

Edit- On mobile, nothing is shown below Holiday Thrills. On the web version, I can see the accurate ride list. The FAQ section still lists Mind Eraser and Buzzsaw though so that's probably an oversight from the first year they did the event.
