Park News - (1/11/21) Six Flags New England has started a new Holiday in the Park Drive-Thru Experience on January 7th. The experience will only be run for a limited number of nights now through January 18th and you must buy your tickets (with reservation) online in advance. Good news for passholders however is that the Drive-Thru Experience will be free for all current members and season passholders, and for those without, tickets are just $9.99 per adult. Look up all the official details on the park’s website.
(12/20/20) Six Flags New England has now extended the run of the park’s Holiday in the Park Lights attraction through to Jan. 3, 2021.

Reservations are required in advance.
(11/29/20) Six Flags New England launched their Holiday in the Park Lights event on Friday night. While park attractions and rides will remain closed, guests will be led on a one-way pathway tour of the theme park past over one million holiday lights on display, music and more. Visit the official website for all the details.
(12/13/19) According to local news reports the roof of the carousel at Six Flags New England briefly caught fire the other night. According to the statement from the park, it was a “small contained fire” that their safety team was able to put out right away. There were no injuries and the carousel will get a complete inspection before it reopens again.
2020 - Supergirl Sky Flyer - (8/29/19) As expected, Six Flags New England will add a new flat ride to the DC Comics area of the park called Supergirl Sky Flyer. The new ride will spin riders head over heels nearly 7-stories in the air on this new Zamperla Endeavor ride.
(8/14/19) One of our readers has sent in an excellent possible explanation to the “252” clue posted on the theater marquee at Six Flags New England. If you do a Google search for DC Comics issue #252 the first thing that comes up is that the character Supergirl was first introduced in Action Comics #252.
This gives us a likely name / theme for whatever SFNE is adding in 2020, and based on last year’s additions, the very first Supergirl themed ride was added to Six Flags St. Louis as Supergirl Sky Flyer, a Zamerpla Endeavour ride. Six Flags has also installed another one of these at Six Flags over Texas as Catwoman’s Whip in 2016, but that name is already taken for the family coaster already at SFNE.
Adding a little more thought to the matter, it would also make sense if SFNE were to possible remove the Kryptonite Kollider (Chance Wipeout) flat ride, as the new Cyborg Freestyle ride really is an updated version of this same ride concept. I’m also been told that the Kryptonite Kollider pad was formerly home to Nightwing (2000 - 2008) which was a Huss Fly Away. So just thinking that a Zamperla Endeavor would offer a similar ride experience, minus the flying posture, and should still fit on the same pad if they were to go this route. Of course they could always keep the Kollider and install the new ride somewhere else, but just in case, you might want to get your rides on the Kollider now. (Fun Note: originally the Kollider started out as “The Joker’s Wildcard” and was once located inside the same building where Cyborg is now before being moved outside.
(8/13/19) Six Flags New England has posted what seems to be a teaser on the theater marquee in Rockville that says “252” on the top line and then “082919” on the second line, which is the date for the chain-wide 2020 announcements. So the question is… what exactly are they hinting at with 252? Height for the new attraction perhaps? I’m thinking that is too easy a hint, and the park already has a set of S&S towers and a Sky Screamer. Maybe it could represent something else entirely. Anyone else have any ideas?
