Six Flags New England (SFNE) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Well, if Twister leaves, then there will be no more flat rides that flip you upside down (the Blitz doesn't count and Houdini especially doesn't count). I can see Twister leaving, as it seems like it's been on its last legs these past few seasons. You're already lucky if it gets you to invert twice in one cycle, but it's always painful seeing a SFNE flat ride leave, considering how there used to be so many of them within the last ten years.

 

BTW, where did the rumor come from?

It has been closed and removed from the rides listing, which seems like pretty damning evidence to me. Not that I care; the only thing that it ever accomplished was hurting like hell. The only saving grace was the fact that it was always a walk-on, and with the horrible program that it was running, I can see why.

I hope the park replaces the ride, but SF seems to be slow to add flats back to the parks, except the star flyers.

 

Speaking of star flyers I talked with someone that Will be involved in the construction over the coming winter.

Six flags magic mountain has more flats than SFNE . Plus that park has enough coasters and water rides to keep busy all day.

 

I know that, it's a bigger park I've been there, have you? Just pointing out a park can survive on coasters alone. People go to SFMM for the thrills and coasters not it's limited flats collection. Last time I checked SFMM has two water rides one of which does not get you very wet.

 

Ok, back to SFNE.

Yes I have been.

 

There is 3 water rides. River rapids, shoot the chutes and jet stream.

 

Six Flags new england doesn't have many coasters that are stand out. They have bizarro and batman as the two custom steels and a custom wooden coaster that is awful. To add on to the list, there is a small but fun wooden coaster and 5 compact coaster which only one (Goliath) is somewhat good. I am not trying to be negative, but there isn't a lot of room for more big, custom coasters. They should really be using the space that is meant for flat rides, for flat rides. They have so much to work with but they just don't want the extra work.

They couldn't make it all the way. They valleyed.

 

They will put them back on after this season when they fix them.

 

No....the issue was the train and catch car weren't connecting properly on the reverse trip so there was nothing to stop the train on the way back. During testing, the only thing stopping the train was the emergency brakes on the way up the cobra roll. It did valley once between the loop and second tower, but that wasn't the big issue.

I made my first trip to SFNE yesterday. It was a great park (Minus some operations and many employees).

 

Bizarro lived up to the hype and got better as the day progressed. We maged to grab three rides on it, once in the back, once in front, and once in the second row. The front row rides were late in the day and were fantastic. The back row ride was our first ride of the day and wasn't nearly as intense as the last two rides at night. Does this change during the day? Is the back the place to be on this ride?

 

The other rides were great as well, all running relatively well (Except Mind Eraser and Flashback)

 

The water park was PACKED. Did manage to get a ride in on Bonzai Pipeline, which was really intense going around the helix. I wasn't able to lift my head at all during this part. Many people getting off complained of hurting their elbows, hands, heads, and backs. I'd probably skip this attraction next time I visit.

 

Now, for the good and bad news. Goliath was open, and was running really well! Bad news, it has the old train. I never had a problem with these trains, and in my opinion, they give you more of a "Holy crap I'm in a death trap" feel, which adds to the adrenaline.

^nope it's totally the opposite. Sfne is my home park so I have been on it enough to know, it literally isn't worth riding unless it's in the back and at night. If you ride the front after the back it may get more of a pop on the airtime hills but you don't get the slingshot sensation you get in the back where each hill gets increasingly intense until you suddenly pull out. Honestly the back just feels much faster and more out of control. Also, The first drop is worthless in the front.
