Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (10/10/18) A reader reports in that the Gotham City Crime Wave is indeed just being taken down for a full winter refurbishment, and that it will return next season.
2019 - Cyborg and Buccaneer Beach - (5/25/19) The local news got a sneak peek at the new Cyborg Hyper Drive attraction (flat ride build in an indoor setting) opening soon at Six Flags New England. Check out the video clip on their website. It will open to the public on June 1st, but they will have some previews for VIPs and passholders between then and now.
(3/1/19) According to the Six Flags New England website, there has been a slight update to the name of the new Cyborg ride. They are now calling it CYBORG Hyper Drive.
(12/23/18) According to the minutes of the local Agawam Planning Board meeting from the end of November, Six Flags New England seems to have a second project in the works for 2019. This one would see a new addition to the waterpark called Buccaneer Beach, which would replace the existing Bonzai Beach. According to the minutes everything at Bonzai Beach will be demolished except for a beverage stand, and the new Buccaneer Beach “includes a pool, a changing room building, pool filter building, landscaped areas, concrete patio areas and cabanas.”
(11/12/18) Is a second attraction in the works for Six Flags New England in addition to the small Cyborg flat ride? According to the agenda for an upcoming meeting at the Agawam Planning Board on Nov. 15th, they are going to discuss the site plan for a “New Water Park Attraction” being proposed by Six Flags New England. If a major new waterslide is in the works for Hurricane Harbor, that could definitely explain why the rest of the park was only getting a single small flat ride. If anyone happens to be in the area and wants to attend the meeting, I’m sure we'd love to hear the rest of the details.
(8/30/18) Six Flags New England will add Cyborg in 2019, described as a "new dark ride experience". I'm not 100% sure exactly what kind of ride this is, but it appears to be a new spinning flat ride of some kind that will be placed indoors and enhanced with special effects and music. "Step into S.T.A.R. Labs to witness a new technological device when the sentient cybernetic system called THE GRID hacks into the mainframe and takes control of the entire lab." Based on the video footage shown, the ride system looks like it could be a Chance Freestyle.
