SFNE Easter Fun


Recommended Posts

This is my first TR, so bear with me, please.

 

On Easter Sunday, I made my first park visit of the 2017 season to Six Flags New England. The goal was mainly to pick up my seasons pass as well as my dining pass, but since we were there, my family and I decided to stay for the day. We invited a friend of mine along, since he had to pick up a seasons pass as well.

 

So, we got there about 9:30-ish, and went through processing to pick up all our passes. They let us in about 10:20, and I hit up my first ride: Superman. I kinda have to do it every time I go-it's a personal preference. From there, I fit in Catwoman, Gauntlet, Batman, and Mind Eraser all before lunch at Johnny Rocket's. I'm Jewish and was celebrating Passover, so my lunch was a bun-less hamburger.

 

The day for me was basically all about credit renewal: riding rides I hadn't done in a while. Some, like Sky Screamer and Superman, I ride every visit. Others, like WC, I only rode once. So, after lunch, I proceeded to hit up Kryptonite (new name for Joker's Wildcard), Tea cups, Sky Screamer, Houdini, (skipped Goliath), Wicked Cyclone, Sky Screamer, Bumper Cars, Pandemonium, and Thunderbolt. Joker, sadly, doesn't open until May, and I'll try to hit up season pass preview on May 20: it'll be my first 4-D credit!

 

Ride Reviews:

 

Superman: 10/10 epic ride. First airtime hill is insane! You get so much, so intense floater air, and the rest of the ride is solid ejector. Great helixes and half-decent theming. Side note, we got stuck on the brake run in the hot sun for roughly 10-15 minutes because some idiots jumped a fence and security was pursuing them. They sent the train ahead of us around the track empty and we rolled in. The attendants apologized for the delay and we got off.

 

Mind Eraser: 3/10. OUCH. The new restraints are a lifesaver, because this thing is painful. Inversions are okay, but being an SLC, the train rattles and rocks the whole ride. I actually got a little bruised in my thigh afterwards. Would ride with VR just to test it out, but not regularly. Yeah, I didn't do the VR: decided to save it for the next visit.

 

Batman: 7/10. Not an impressive floorless coaster. Very short, but solid at the same time. Great hangtime on the loop, and well-paced. I'm a sucker for dive loops, and therefore believe I kind of have to hit up SFGAmerica for Goliath.

 

Goliath: did not ride. We kind of have a bad relationship. Rode it a couple years back, got a bad case of vertigo on the second vertical lift, been deathly scared ever since. I promise you, I WILL ride that coaster this season.

 

Wicked Cyclone: 10/10 tied with STR. Great ejector air and hangtime on inversions. Currently my only RMC credit, but hoping to add more in the future.

 

Catwoman's Whip: 5/10. Solid family ride, not too intense, not too amazing, but fun, no line, and a nice cool-down after intense rides. *cough* Superman *cough*. Note: NEVER ride the front seat on this, go for back. You miss the entire drop in the front.

 

Gotham City Gauntlet, Escape From Arkham Asylum: 6/10. Fun wild mouse, but a little rattly and bumpy. I'm 6'2ish, and I fear getting my head chopped off by the supports whenever I ride this.

 

Pandemonium: 8/10. Great Gerstlauer spinner. The attendants perfectly balanced our car, as my friend and I, along with a couple opposite us, were all spinning the entire ride, and even kept up a fast spin as we hit the brakes. Line gets very long for this. If you've ridden a clone, don't bother with the wait, it can get to 30-45min.

 

Note: Flashback was down, train stuck inbetween loop and second lift hill (It's a Vekoma Boomerang)

 

Thunderbolt: 6/10. Fun woodie, has a rattle. Problem was they were only running one train, so line was terribly slow. Fun coaster, though, I'll give it that.

 

FLAT RIDE NOTES:

 

Sky Screamer: Fun and crazy. Height really adds a new dimension. The winds were so strong, though, our seat flipped backwards. Friend and I were fairly scared when that happened. SO MUCH ADRENALINE THOUGH

 

Tea Cups: If you spin it right, the ride is crazy awesome

 

Kryponite: G forces make this ride insanely cool

 

Houdini: meh if you take out the theming, OMG WTF IS HAPPENING with effects and pre-show

 

Bumper Cars: not good for practicing to get a license...

Sorry for no WC photos. That's it for this TR! Next one will be late May-early June-ish for SFNE. After that, it's a California storm! Universal Hollywood, SFMM on a Gold Flash Pass, and both Disney Parks!

Awesome report! I want to visit this park so badly! I heard some many great things!

 

Definitely. Good park, solid attractions.

 

UPDATE: not going to seasons pass preview of Joker. Catch me there June 1st. Senior week stuff for school. Joker credit will be obtained then.
