Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

What Color will it Be Repainted?

I don't know why the picture is sideways, as in my Photobucket account it is the right orientation. You can see that at the bottom the colors are hyper blue and outrageous green, aka the same colors as it was at SFMM with the exception of the towers.

 

Will Goliath have flash pass?

Yeah, according to the blue prints, after walking through the entry portal you turn left, completely missing the first set of switchbacks, then you walk along the side of the second set of switchbacks (which are located in Shipwreck Falls' station) and then you merge before entering the station.

To me, The Deja Vu was the coaster that always deluded me from riding it. When Six Flags over Georgia had theirs, the ride always seems to be down whenever I visited the park. So I had no tears when they took that overpriced scape heap out of their park, but I was still upset that I may never get to ride it.

 

2010 - I go to Six Flags Magic Mountain and rode Deja Vu twice in a row. Now I can die happy.

 

This season, I'm planning to go to Six Flags New England and I'm hoping that Goliath would be up and running at least on one of the two days I'm planning to visit. I want revenge from the last time I visited Six Flags New England in 2001 ( I only had a one day window, a few rides -including Superman - wasn't running, and a terrible thunderstorm forced me to leave the park and head back to the motel ), and you can bet that cold dish will be oh so sweet this year ( it's a shame that they don't have 'Nightwing' anymore. That was some ride!), especially if I get to ride Goliath again and again.

 

This is me, after two fun-filled days at Six Flags New England.

I was there the other day and got some pics. Goliath truly is a massive coaster. Pictures do not do it justice. The coaster can be seen all through out the park. The old Vekoma train is indeed being put back on the track as well...

I wonder why Silverwood didn't need the escape tower with Aftershock??

Green towers don't look bad in person.

Hello Vekoma trains.

 

New Goliath gift shop that opened up on Monday!

The line for season pass processing has been crazy long all week!

Gotham City Gauntlet breaks down a lot, I've noticed.

The Batmobile is all scratched up.

They did have mist running in it's queue however.

One last shot of Goliath!

 

More pictures from the Travel Channel shoot at SFNE can be found on SFNE Online.

 

Edit:

I also took a video from the New England Skyway showing off the construction site of Goliath. It was windy so the video turned out pretty shaky.

I remember hearing that with Aftershock, Vekoma promised that it had fixed everything and there wouldn't be a need for it (as in not stalling anywhere). I guess Six Flags either is doing everything in-house or they just keeping it because they haven't fixed that possibility or its just an extra safety featuer as you we six flags wants to be extra safe.

 

As for Green Towers, it definitely draws even more attention to them.

Premier must be having some trouble with the train development. It's completely understandable - they're designing a new train essentially from scratch.

 

Personally, I would have rather seen Vekoma produce the new train, but whatever.

Anyone who has gone the in the past week, have you noticed the water fall that is in front of Goliath

There were a couple photos of the landscaping posted at this link:

 

For anybody who doesn't know, the towers are completely green now. I don't have any pictures, but I have seen pictures from opening day and can confirm from going to the park today that the towers are the same color as the track. I believe there are some photos on SFNEonline

That ride looks a lot better in it's new location than it did at SFMM. I'm sure it will be a great fit, and will give SFNE a third above-average coaster.

 

As far as the train is concerned, at WCB I remember Tim saying that the ride would use the original Deja Vu train for initial testing and certification, and the new train wouldn't be installed until just before opening. I do not know if plans have changed or not, but I don't think an opening date has been announced for this yet. If the Deja Vu train is still being used a week before opening and the Premier train is nowhere in sight, it would probably be safe to assume plans have changed. Until then, I still think we'll be seeing the Premier train within a month or so.

That waterfall is a VERY nice touch. I wouldn't even dream of SFMM doing anything remotely close.

Premier is probably too busy trying to get that S:UF track manufactured and out the door.

Except that Premier Rides has always Contracted out Track and Upright Fabrication to Intermountain Lift, Inc. in Springville, Utah.
