Drop Line's limit sticks out like a sore thumb and I love it. Six Flags New England could use one of those. :lol:

I'm thinking that's a typo but it would be hilarious if it isn't.

I used to think that but it’s been there for almost a year now. :lol:

Out of curiosity, I tried to find the most frigid day without rain or snow since Drop Line opened and I found December 31, 2017. The high was 30 degrees and the low was 17 degrees. The only two rides that opened were Blazing Fury and Drop Line (that Barnstormer thing has to be an error). However, Drop Line did close due to weather during the last hour of park operation.

Even if it isn't quite 5 degrees, they'll run that ride longer than any other outdoor ride.

I was there that day. Also - January 4th 2018 I believe was colder yet and it ran then too. Not sure it got out of the 20s.

I find it interesting they list Barnstormer at 32°, but the Silver Dollar City app says it needs to be 38°for the Barn Swing.

That is looking terrible. Hopefully this is only a temporary solution and will the park put that hotrod front back on the train after the possible problems are solved.

^ While at the park a week ago, I was told by a ride attendant that the fronts were taken off for refurbishment, which included repainting and such, though I’m not sure if this is true or not. Both fronts were laying on the ground underneath the transfer track.

^ The one thing that makes me think it could be something more is the fact that they've already changed the fronts once.

While it looks ugly in its current configuration, it's running and having the wide open front should make the front row experience even better.
