Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread

Massachusetts announced they will move into Phase 4 Step 1 starting March 22.  I believe theme parks are the step that follows.  From March 22 onwards, the only other items closed along with theme parks will be ball pits, saunas/hot tubs, bars, and nightclubs.

If the positive trends continue, hopefully Phase 4 Step 2 will start by the end of April, which should include theme parks.

Wonderful news!

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

Yeah, April 2022. ;)

I dont understand how theme parks ever got lumped in with nightclubs in our reopening plan anyway. One of them involves hundreds of people packed into a small indoor space and one of them involves a limitable amount of people fully outdoors. Another way to look at it is ski areas have (thankfully) been fine (and very busy) but essentially the warm weather version of waiting in line, sitting in a chair, and flying around at various speeds is still a no no.

I'm hopeful for mid spring also but I was hopeful for July last year and we're 7 months past that now.

Why can't I go to this park again? I want to get that Batman TDK credit. Would skip The Riddler('s) Revenge, because the Great Nor'Easter at Morey's banged my head around IMO and I wouldn't want to go on another SLC. Goliath will be down, I just know it.

You haven't been on The Great Nor'easter since they replaced almost all of the track as well as the trains, have you?  I rode it in 2019 and it was very smooth, especially for an SLC.

Riddler is immensely better with the new restraints though.......very comfortable.......its a good ride......

Your guess is as good as anyone's.  Amusement Parks aren't in MA's Phase 4 step A part 1 subpart a that takes effect on 3/22, so whenever their Governor decides to take his head out of his ass, they'll open.  On the plus side, they did hire a bunch of people back in late February, so I guess that's good news?

BTW I found this information after 2 minutes of Googling.

Since they aren't in Phase 4 Step 1, the earliest they can open is Phase 4 Step 2.  Phase 4 Step 1 starts later this month.  MA has said each step has to occur at least one month after the prior.  They've announced reopening phases/steps a month in advance, so we should know a month in advance before the park is allowed to open.  The earliest it can happen is the end of April.

With the Cali parks announcing their opening days recently, I believe SFNE is the final park yet to announce an opening day. And, naturally, there isn't even a date where their phase of reopening might happen.

Thankfully things finally seem to be moving a bit quicker on Beacon Hill so I think late April is possible and almost definitely by Memorial Day.

Total guess but at this point I think the park probably knows when they will be allowed to open but might not be able to say just yet. Like the two HITP events we will probably see an announcement with a short window to opening day from there. 🤞

Did see someone post a video of Wicked Cyclone running in the rain Sunday.  I'll most likely be driving past the park tomorrow so if anything is running I'll try to grab a few pics.

EDIT:  Looks like SFNE is going to have a little more walk through with no rides at least starting April 10th - May 23rd.  Dinosaur Walk-Thru Experience details up on the site now.  Also see dates showing up in the app but doesn't look like you can reserve yet.

Oh for F's sake......still nothing from Baker......meanwhile Lake Compounce in CT was able to open today no restrictions.......what a bunch of Massholes up there in Boston......come on

LC doesn’t open until May 8th and there will still be safety restrictions. Not sure where you heard otherwise.

I do agree that Mass. needs to let SFNE open though. Today started the Dinosaur walk through but people are getting more and more pissed that rides can’t open.  Think it’s great that the park is still trying but rides are what people ultimately want.

That is pretty unusual. I get people may end up near each other/crowds can happen but parks....nightclubs? That's a weird group of entities lol Guessing the chances of this place opening by June 1 is not looking so good?

Sports stadiums were able to get out of Phase 4 Step 2, so there's hope, especially considering how amusement parks have done in other states.  I know Six Flags New England is trying, but the state won't budge.

Interesting. Yeah that is hopeful esp as I imagine a park can allow more distance/protocol even than a stadium. Would deff love to pop by hear before I move out of NE but we shall see! And oh yeah, no doubt the park wants to open bad.
