Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (4/6/18) According to News Plus Notes, Six Flags New England will retheme a section of the park to become Gotham City. The new themed zone will be home to many DC hero and villain characters, such as the new Harley Quinn Spinsanity ride, but the park's Mind Eraser coaster will also be rethemed as The Riddler Revenge, as you'll twist, flip and turn on the line-green inverted coaster track, with yellow supports. The Riddler Revenge will also feature all new coaster trains, with Vekoma's more open, soft and comfortable restraint system.
(1/22/18) In addition to a confirmation about the removal of Buzzsaw at Six Flags New England, I'm told that the park's Tea Cups ride is being moved to the former Buzzsaw location, to make room for Harley Quinn Spinsanity which is taking over the former Tea Cups spot next to Joker.
(1/5/18) According to a piece of email sent in by a reader, they claim that the Buzzsaw ride at Six Flags New England will be removed this season. Currently the ride already seems to be removed from the list of attractions on the official website, but according to Google the official page was still there up until Jan. 2nd. You can find the cached version still located on the Google servers here. Such a pity to loose a fun family thrill ride like this from Zierer. Looks like it was a fun one for the whole family.
(11/27/17) According to a tweet from SFNE Online, a very Riddler themed hint has now appeared in the park in the form of a giant date teaser for 04.07.18 with a background covered with Riddler style green question marks. According to the tweet, the park’s Mind Eraser coaster (Vekoma SLC) may be given a little bit of a Riddler makeover for 2018.
Many years ago, the Mind Bender at Six Flags over Georgia received a similar treatment, adding some light Riddler themeing and a new paint job on the trains, while keeping the ride’s original name intact. In addition, Mind Eraser is essentially surrounded by the park’s other DC Comics themed character rides on all sides, like The Dark Knight, Crimewave, Joker and Superman, so a Riddler theme would be fitting.
(3/30/17) Six Flags New England has posted a video showing off a preview of how the park will look later this year when they stay open through to the end of the year for the park's first Holiday In The Park winter event. Holiday in the Park will run on weekends and select days from November 24 through December 31.
2018 - Harley Quinn Spinsanity - (6/1/18) The local news reports that the new Harley Quinn Spinsanity ride at Six Flags New England is now set to open this Saturday to park guests.
(8/31/17) Six Flags New England changed the artwork on the top of their Facebook page to show Harley Quinn Spinsanity coming for 2018, but this is not the same ride going to Six Flags over Texas. This one appears to be a Zamerpla Discovery giant pendulum swing ride standing 15 stories tall.
(8/14/17) Looks like we know what Six Flags New England is planning for 2018. A document posted by the local Town of Agawam mentions that a planning meeting with Six Flags will take place on Aug. 17th regarding the installation of a "Giant Discovery Thrill Ride" at the park. This would be a reference to the Zamperla Giant Discovery, their version of the Giant Frisbee ride concept, and confirming our rumor from last week that this was exactly what Six Flags was planning to add for 2018 at SFNE.
(8/9/17) According to the latest rumor, Six Flags New England could be adding a giant inverted frisbee style pendulum ride, much like the Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth ride installed into Six Flags Discovery Kingdom for 2017. The same ride was also installed into La Ronde as Titan. Since the rumored location may place it somewhere in near the Batman and Joker coasters, I could see them sticking with the Wonder Woman theme here.
