Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

A bag filled with medicine (Allergic to nuts) so I can't really lose that so I guess I need to get a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo. Are there all day fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo or just 2 hour ones?

They have full day fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo all over the place. The best ones are right through the main gate, to the right. You don't need a key or anything. It's pretty cool. Or you could call guest relations and ask them if you could leave your medicine in the first aid building. I think they would approve that but you never know.

 

We got an all day lock.er (I didn't want to drag my purse around with me). It's $13 for an all-day lock.er - well, $13 for the smallest size, but that fit 2 sweatshirts, a bag of bathing suits and stuff for the water park, and my purse, so that's probably all you'd need. There's also a medium and large for a couple more bucks each. The lock.ers by the big coasters are $1 per use and the time limit is 2 hours.

Six Flags New England Announces Goliath –

A Coaster of Epic Proportions for the 2012 Season

 

 

Six Flags New England, home to the largest collection of coasters in the Northeast, today announced the addition of Goliath a suspended looping boomerang coaster that will leave guests wondering which way is up! New England’s newest coaster will reside in the Crack Axle Canyon section of the park and will make its debut in late spring of 2012.

 

The ride experience will begin when guests are strapped into chairs suspended from the track above, Goliath sends riders dangling face-down out of the station and up the first tower. Once riders reach the top of the tower they are dropped into a complete vertical 18-story free-fall reaching speeds of 65 miles-per-hour before racing head-over-heels on the outside of a

102-foot-tall vertical loop followed by an enormous 110-foot-tall butterfly turn before rocketing up the second 19-story tower. Think that’s all…hold on, there’s more as guests are sent rocketing back through the entire experience all over again with nothing beneath their feet but earth

and sky.

 

“Six Flags New England is thrilled to announce the addition of Goliath to our already amazing arsenal of rides,” said Jason Freeman, Six Flags New England park president. “This ride delivers pure adrenaline from start to finish and solidifies our commitment to adding high volume fun for the entire family.” Goliath joins an incredible line up of coasters including: Cyclone, Batman The Dark Knight, Mind Eraser and of course the top rated steel coaster, Bizarro. When coaster enthusiasts are looking for thrills and excitement, Six Flags New England is their #1 choice! Six Flags New England is also home to three dedicated children’s areas, entertaining shows, FREE concerts and New England’s largest water park.

For where it's going in SFNE, it does make sense. It's going to appear to tower over everything else in the park. What I don't think is fitting is the coloring being the same as Deja Vu has now, since it won't look that great in Crack Axel Canyon. But beggars can't be choosers.

Im pretty excited to have this at my home park. I mean dejavu is one of the most intense rides there is (in my opinion at least) so to have another great coaster is good for six flags new england, who hasn't really gotten anything relatively thrilling since batman. (2002). The one problem I have with this is that....it's literally right next to Flashback. Hopefully they'll be facing opposite eachother (like dejavu's cobra roll will be facing flashbacks) or else this is going to look really weird.

Haha. The plans do show it going the same direction as Flashback though. Seems like every coaster is facing in the same direction, except Batman and Thunderbolt.

This looks like it's a commercial or something for Goliath.

I like their creative usage of both Kingda Ka and X-Flight (SFWoA) footage inside an advertising push for Goliath. X-Flight hasn't been in the chain for years, and Kingda Ka resembles nothing to the rider experience of a suspended.

 

Classy and clever.

The two tallest things in the park are Bizarro (208 ft tall) and Scream is 200 ft. Bizarro is right on the bank of the CT river, and that is the lowest elevation in the park. Scream looks like it is taller, but its right where things level out.

 

Goliath will be the complete opposite. Goliath is situated on a hill, the highest elevation in the park. So it will look like its about 270ish feet tall. Thats why we all thought the media wasn't getting the right facts.

 

Plus I can see another reason they picked the name. Bizarro is the most popular attraction with merchandise. I can't think of any other ride, except maybe Batman that actually has merch sold for it. SFNE needs another signature coaster to sell more merch (IMO) and Goliath fits that. It's very easy to create Goliath stuff.

goliath is a weird name. and what's the deal with relocating this, iron wolf, and invertigo? is the thought process here that these rides are no longer popular at their current parks, so we're just gonna pack em up and ship to the east coast, hoping that placement at a new park will increase ridership?

 

i suppose to the GP these new installs will be "brand new". but still, if they became unpopular at their current parks, i would think that would inevitably happen again at the new parks.

They should've painted it something like Stunt Fall would be better for the name. I think all the "new" coasters that Six Flags has all have horrible paint jobs (except Superman @ SFDK).

 

Yeah like Apocalypse using KD's shockwave's original 1986 colors ughh.

 

Still like I mentioned earlier it's good tosee them give this ride another chance at a new location,and if they can work the bugs out then maybe other parks will take notice & add similar installations in the future.

Well both CF & especially SF aren't exactly swimming in cash right now so it makes sense to relocate assets within the chain,especially to parks that havn't seen major rides in a long time(cough SFA cough).
