This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Six Flags New England, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.
Well, three if you want to count the slingshot but it's no where mentioned in the article. But I did see a picture of what is supposedly the slingshot... anyway, the two new rides which we all pretty much knew were the spinning coaster in the north end and the typhoon water coaster slide.
Dancing five stories above the ground, Mr. Six’s Pandemonium will take park Guests on an all-new ride experience creating a new spin on the typical roller coaster. Face-to-face in individual 4-person cars, Guests will enjoy more than a quarter mile of totally unique fun, shared with family and friends. This roller coaster spins like a top while moving up and down through hairpin turns and plummeting spirals. Each ride that Guests take on Mr. Six’s Pandemonium will be different, just like the master of playtime himself. No other coaster will leave you dizzy with laughter like Mr. Six’s Pandemonium!
Mr. Six's Pandemonium will be the first coaster inspired by the character.
Making a huge splash at Hurricane Harbor, Typhoon will offer park goers a unique thrill only to be experienced at Hurricane Harbor. Typhoon offers an extreme 3-person rafting experience. The water coaster’s rocket propelled water and conveyer belts blast riders though a serpentine series of high bank turns, enclosed tunnels and up hill climbs at racing speeds. Typhoon’s technology includes higher and faster uphill sections than any existing water coaster in the country. The thrill of a traditional coaster gets “all wet” with the 2005 debut of Typhoon!
IMO, I think these will be some good additions to the park since our last one was in 2003 with the waterpark expansion.
^ Yeah, I believe it is. Also, If you watch the video they announce that it's new technology so it's not like the regular waterslides where water pushes you up, it's like this high speed conveyer belt that brings you up. And those are some big hills the slide has!
[Edit] Ignore what I said here earlier, I read further into what I found and someone corrected the person who claimed it was a White Water manufactured slide. Supposedly they said that Pro Slides will also be using the same technology when it comes to the acceleration belts when going up hill. So I apologize, looks like it will be a Pro Slides slide[/Edit]
"Britain, Britain, Britain, We're open from 9 to 6, monday through saturdays"
I think its awesome that SFNE is adding a Gerstlauer spinning coaster. I rode Timberland Twister at Camp Snoopy last summer and that thing, believe it or not, is awesome. Its just a really fun and thrilling coaster. I was quite impressed. I have plans to visit SFNE this summer so that makes the visit even better! That water ride looks pretty sweet too. I need to start visiting Six Flags' water parks. I might have to give SFNE's a try.
Thats pretty cool how they incorporate the coaster around the time warp. Do they have an opening date for this baby yet? I hope to ride before i go away for an internship (if i even get one). Or else i will have to wait til october.
