Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (4/30/21) Six Flags New England has confirmed that the theme park WITH RIDES, will reopen to guests on May 15th as the state moves into the next reopening phase. There will be a Passholder/Member preview held on May 14th.
(4/25/21) With many Six Flags theme parks now reopen for the 2021, local guests are wondering when Six Flags New England will be able to reopen. While the park has been able to open with a temporary dinosaur exhibit, Six Flags New England is currently barred from reopening the park with rides and normal operations until Massachusetts officially enters “Step 2” of the state’s “Phase IV” reopening plan. Currently the state is only officially in “Step 1”.
Six Flags New England is awaiting the state’s approval to move on to Step 2 in the future which will allow theme parks and waterparks to reopen, along with bars, nightclubs, beer gardens, street festivals and other outdoor sporting/athletic events.
(4/5/21) An army of Dinosaurs have arrived at Six Flags New England this spring it seems. This is a new walk-through attraction that will be open on weekends and other select dates from April 10 through to May 23, and even better it will be free to all Six Flags 2021 Members and Season Passholders. The walk-through edutainment adventure will feature 20 life-size dinosaur figures, many with movement and sound effects.
2021 - 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.
