Six Flags New England Review

Six Flags New England is definetly one of the more interesting Six Flags Parks. It's easily a personal favorite of mine, and that's not only because it has one of my favorite coasters of all time in the park. No, this is more about the balance that the park has. Yeah, this park is REALLY well balanced. Yes, Bizarro is one of the best coasters in the world, but all the other coasters are really fun. Ok, they're not all amazing, but there's not a single bad one in the bunch. And a B&M Floorless Coaster, DejaVu, and an RMC has to count for something. Cause I hear things about Wicked Cyclone, and it sounds F*CKING AMAZING!!! =) And even amongst that, everything else is really balanced. Their flat ride collection is really good, with some really rare and unique rides, as well as something for everyone. They even have a really cool water park for you to cool off and enjoy in. Yeah. It's not only one of the biggest parks in the New England region, but it's one of the best parks in the Six Flags Chain. Highly recommended you stop on by while you're in New England.

Flat Rides

Here are the reviews of all the Flat Rides at Six Flags New England. This park, unlike many of it's brothers and sisters in the Six Flags chain, actually has a decent flat ride collection. Let's move onto my personal favorite flat ride that they have here, and one that is pretty unique to the United States. The Great Houdini. This is a Vekoma Mad House. Now if you live in Europe or have visited a lot of parks in Europe, you'll quickly find out that these rides are EVERYWHERE in the European Region. However, there are only 2 in the United States, one of which is here at Six Flags New England. Now if you constantly ride these rides, they definetly grow old. However, for someone riding a Mad House for the first time, these rides are amazing. I know I LOVED them until I rode them constantly when I was in Europe. Now back when I was there, they also had an S&S Swat, which was a fun ride, but sadly they got rid of it due to technical problems, which I'm not surprised by at all. Most people didn't even like it, but I did. Oh well, there's now only one left in the world at Thorpe Park. So go to England if you want to ride its one and only clone. They also have one of those Magic Carpet rides, which I have to admit, are AWESOME!!! These rides are seriously underrated. Why don't more people talk about them!!? Their wipeout however, is one of the weakest ones out there. Seriously, that ride sucked. The park also has an S&S Combo Tower, a frisbee, a top spin, some chairswings, a scrambler, some teacups, a carousel, and since my last visit, they added a 400 ft. Star Flyer. Sweet.

Definetly ride this ride if you haven't been to the European Parks.

Water Rides

I never rode any of the water rides at Six Flags New England. However, they do have some good ones here. They one of those spinning raft rides here, which are fun and all, but not worth the HORRENDOUS waits that they get (or at least the one here. Seriously, this thing was a 2 hour wait due to HORRIBLE capacity). They also have a river rapids ride and a shoot the chutes ride here. Both of which are fun, but neither of which are special. So ride if those sound interseting to you.

Water Park
(Six Flags Hurricane Harbor)

Here is the review of Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. The included water park to Six Flags New England. Now I didn't spend too much time here as I mostly just explored the place for a little bit during the Water Park ERT. However, it did seem like a very nice water park with a couple really good slides that I thouroughly enjoyed.

Dining

Ok, so the food here is nothing special. The food didn't wow me at all. Ok, to be fair. Six Flags New England did impress me in their food department in one way. They sold Vault on tap. YES!!! I LOVE VAULT!!! Sadly however, Coke discontinued Vault (YOU SUCK!!!). So there goes the one special thing I liked about the food department at Six Flags New England.

*Sniff* I miss you Vault.

Theming and Other Attractions

Here are the reviews of all the other stuff at Six Flags New England. There' really not much theming considering that it's a Six Flags park and all, though I will admit that the park does have a nice setting right by the Conneticuit River. But aside from a couple statues of D.C Comics characters in the Superhero themed area, there's no theming at Six Flags New England. As for other stuff to do at the park, there's really not that much. I'm sure there's a couple shows or something like that. But keep in mind, this is a Six Flags park. They're not exactly known for stuff that isn't roller coasters.

In Conclusion

Six Flags New England is a really nice park and definetly one of the best parks in the Six Flags Chain. Not only are they home to some of the best coasters on the planet such as Bizarro (and hopefully Wicked Cyclone), but they also have some really good flat rides as well as a nice water park for you to check out and cool off at. This combinded with another Top 10 Coaster nearby at Lake Compounce really makes the Northeast a hot spot for anyone wanting to ride top quality roller costers.

Enthusiast FAQs.

*Are there kiddy coaster restrictions? - No and No. There are no restrictions for Catwoman's Whip or the Great Chase.

Tips

*Get a Gold Q Bot if it's summer. It'll most likely be worth it.

*Get on the kiddy coasters in the morning since they aren't on the Qbot

*If you don't get a Qbot, run to Bizarro first and then get the credits mentioned above.

*Get multiple rides on Bizarro

*Be sure to ride Bizarro at night after it warms up.

*Take advantage of the Single Riders Lines

*Have Fun!!!!
