I know its been said so many times but I was every time I go to Morey's and Six Flags New England I can't help but think how much I want this park to get the new trains on Mind Eraser. They make it a completely different ride for the better.


I've also noticed that Mind Eraser at SFA only has one train now.

And if I had a poop load of money . . . . I'd buy new trains for the ride; or go the Morey's route and do a re-tracking.


That is interesting. During Fright Fest ME can get quite the line and they usually use both trains. I wonder if one is being refurbished. I hope this doesn't get the boot any time soon. I personally really enjoy SLC's a lot.

Must be a slow news day. Safety features worked, and all people were safely evacuated without the need for first responders.

This is ridiculous. The ride's safety features worked as intended. Why is this ne...

(sees what park it is)

... you know what, actually yeah. Maybe for safety reasons they should shut this place down and replace it with a better park. You can never be too careful. :lol:

They're getting ready to air a story about this on ABC World News Tonight claiming that the coaster is stuck and people are dangling up in the air. :b

Gotta love the media.

Yeah... in an effort to not start a thing that spirals and makes any unnecessary work for Larry or Robb while he’s on vacation in Japan, I’ll just leave this alone. :lol:

It's sad that the media decided to report this of all the stories they could report about the park. A story about how people are getting their ears bashed in on Mind Eraser.
