Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread

Their dino event is slated to run through May 23.  I suspect the latest they'd reopen the full park would be Memorial Day weekend, but I wouldn't be surprised if they start soft opening some rides for the dino event.

This announcement was paired with Massachusetts relaxing its outdoor mask mandate.  Now masks are only required outdoors if you can't physically social distance.  I strongly suspect Six Flags will make them mandatory inside the park like they've done for their other parks and that would especially make sense given how long it took for them to finally reopen.

Wicked Cyclone is a weird one.  It seems to run better in the cold which is the opposite of how most coasters run.  When it runs slow, the ride starts bleeding speed on the final lap.  The ride still gives good airtime, but you'll feel a pause in between the elements.

The last time I rode WC (a super hot and humid day in July 2019) it was running so slow that the Zero-G Rolls almost felt like JoJo Rolls. 

I had ridden Steel Vengeance and Twisted Timbers in the month before that and Wicked Cyclone was visibly running so slow in comparison that it literally looked like watching a YouTube video at 75% speed. It was almost comical. Still super fun to ride but felt so bizarre.

Edit: ah someone beat me to it

 

Back on the Windexcyanide topic (never forget word filters), I could very well be wrong but I'm pretty sure they run more than one type of wheel on it. In the cooler season it runs different because of the wheels they put on. Yes weather effects it too but I think that's why you see such a difference sometimes (and why it makes a different sound).

Someone please correct me if I'm just making this sh!t up. lol

 

Edit again:

When it first opened as per RMC: "the train is running a combination of nylon, steel, and urethane wheels" -- so in other words there are times when they switch things out. I forgot where I gained all of this wisdom but it intrigued me because it's completely true that sometimes the ride is barely making it back, and some times is absolutely running in hyper speed; regardless of weather.

Made a reservation for preview night. Should be able to get over there for a couple hours. Never been on a Friday in May without hundreds of school busses dropping kids off, so might actually be decent!

Has anyone been able to determine what the hours for preview night are?  They aren't on the calendar.

Going by the available reservations when I was on the app an hour ago, 4-9. But who knows if that's official.

Looks like they just added it to the calendar.  It's 5-10.

Hmm...thats weird that they had 4:00 available for reservations, but that's better as I wont be there from work till at least 6 (which is what I reserved). Glad I'll have more time.

Most of the Six Flags parks start reservations up to an hour before the park actually opens, so that makes sense.

I will probably only ride two rides that night.  But I am going to ride them a ton.

Looks like the calendar has been updated through September. 7 day ops don't start until June 14th (2 weeks later than usual) and end on August 28th (1 week earlier than normal). Also the park will close at 8 Monday-Thursday during midsummer. Hopefully that's just for this year.

Calendar stops short of Fright Fest, although with the state's full reopening date of August 1, I expect Fright Fest to be fairly back to normal and hopefully also HITP.

 So chatted with corporate.....if they’re to be believed then paused memberships will restart May 15 when the park reopens officially.....this won’t impact paused members from making reservations now.....haven’t tried yet but we’ll see.....thrilled we made it.....last time we were at the park was New Year’s Day 2020.....crazy

I've never done the membership preferred parking at Six Flags New England before.  It is the lot on the side of the street where they put people for the Holiday in the Park Lights event or do I got to the main parking area?

Haven't been up for HITP, so I'm not sure if it's the same as what you're referring to, but yes, it's the lot that's nestled between the main road and the park:

No tram necessary.

Yes that’s the lot!  Entrance is past the main lot and on the left in front of the water park just before the employee lot entrance if coming from the West Springfield direction.

So the site is offering season passes for $49.99 which is already crazy but wait 
"Admission + parking to other Six Flags theme parks" 
Surely its 1 time only, not like, unlimited visits to others right? But still.....for fifty bucks?? 1 visit to SFNE and Great Adv and that's absolutely paid for already. It almost seems too good to be true. I wont be going here more than once this year but **** a free visit and parking to SFGAdv on top of it, am I missing something? Otherwise seems like a no brainer

I paid $60 for my Six Flags pass last November, that gets me in every SF amusement and water park in the country, with parking, that was valid for the remainder of 2020 and all of 2021.  What you're describing isn't that far fetched.

This is totally legitimate! I posted about it in Six Flags corporate thread back in November when I took advantage of SFStL's deal.

We already activated ours and are ready to park and play across the country. We are planning on going to SFOT, SFFT, SFNE, SFGAdv, SFA, and SFGAm, none of which we have ever been to. It helps we have adult money now, but you can't pass up that deal!

I bought the 2021 pass at SFA a few weeks ago for $49.99. it got me parking and admission at SFA, and the next day at Great Adventure, and I will frequently use it at Darien Lake. You are correct HOWEVER the extra gate water parks are no good unless you buy a membership. Unless your local park has a separate gate then it's good at that park only. So if you get a combo pass at Great adventure is good for THEIR water park and THEIR safari, but season passes from other parks will not get you admission to Great Adventures water park or safari. No problem getting into any of the dry parks, though.

499 days later, it's finally time to open SFNE!

Be there at 6. Expectations set reasonably low for tonight but just glad to be able to go again.
