Mind Eraser @ Six Flags | Coaster Reviews

A Review of Mind Eraser & Its Many Clones The concept of Vekoma’s Suspended Looping Coaster (SLC) is a great one. It’s a compact inverted roller coaster(even though the model name has ‘suspended’ in it) with riders fixed below a tangle of twisted track. They are popular additions at theme parks with about 30 clones or slight variations around the globe. I’ve ridde...[Read More]

Superman Ride of Steel Goes Bizarro at Six Flags New England

I’ve been nervous to even write about the new Bizarro at Six Flags New England. Obviously, the revamped Intamin hyper coaster isn’t really new. It’s another in a line of renovated roller coasters in Six Flags’ new era of roller coaster makeovers. Why would I be nervous? Superman Ride of Steel is my #1 ranked roller coaster and I consider it the best roller coaster I’v...[Read More]

Six Flags: Bankrupt & Better Than Ever?

The writing’s been on the wall for quite some time, but Six Flags finally filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy on Friday. The bankruptcy comes as $2.4 billion in debt is being carried on the park’s books. Current CEO Mark Shapiro explains that the bankruptcy is a measure that’s being taken due to the hole that the previous management put the company in. I don’t think that this is just...[Read More]

Superman Ride of Steel Goes Bizarro?

For the most popular super hero of all time, Superman has the absolute worst villians. His best villain is easily Lex Luthor and he’s just a criminal mastermind constantly after real estate (see the plots for the Superman, Superman 2, and Superman Returns movies). So as Six Flags New England announced an upgrade for the best steel roller coaster on the planet, then repainted it purple and cr...[Read More]

Lex Luthor Coaster Coming to Six Flags New England

Six Flags New England’s Superman Takes a Villainous Turn I’m going to ‘go out on a limb’ and unofficially announce Six Flags New England’s newest roller coaster: Lex Luthor. From the hints being dropped on the viral marketing site, Clawshun Industries, and the ride’s new purple paint job it’s pretty obvious that Superman Ride of Steel will be re-themed as ...[Read More]

Superman Ride of Steel to be Enhanced for 2009

Will the Best Coaster on the Planet Still Be the Best?When I first saw the news that Six Flags was going to add new enhancements to their masterpiece, Superman – Ride of Steel at Six Flags New England, I was cautiously pessimistic at best. I’m generally a very positive, easy-going guy, but I’m a bit concerned that Six Flags is messing with the best roller coaster on the planet. S...[Read More]

Cyclone @ Six Flags New England | Coaster Reviews

Cyclone @ SFNE | Keep Your Chiropractor on Speed Dial Cyclone takes the cake. My first and hopefully last ‘1’. Six Flags New England has the honor of being home to what many consider the Best Coaster on the Planet. On the other end of the spectrum, Cyclone is there too. Unfortunately, I really can’t think of ANY positives for this ride. I got off this monstrosity holding my lower...[Read More]

Batman Dark Knight @ Six Flags New England | Coaster Reviews

Batman: The Dark Knight @ Six Flags New EnglandNo, I don’t have a time machine (yet!). I rode the floorless roller coaster formerly known as Batman: The Dark Knight at Six Flags New England in 2005. This year, Six Flags renamed it Batman: The Ride so that they could add one of the three new Batman: The Dark Knight clones to the park. Make sense? Onto the review. Batman The Dark Knight was a ...[Read More]

Bizarro (Superman) @ Six Flags New England

Bizarro (Formerly Superman: Ride of Steel) at Six Flags New England A Heroic Hyper Coaster That Lives Up to Its Lofty Reputation I don’t give out a lot of 10’s. But this ladies and gentlemen, deserves a 10. It’s reputation was huge and I figured it would be better than the other coasters by the same name, I just didn’t know it was going to be THAT good. Thanks to the unimag...[Read More]

Mr. Six’s Pandemonium | Coaster Reviews

Mr. Six’s Pandemonium @ Six Flags New EnglandMr. Six is much more than a wild mouse coaster with spinning cars like I thought it was going to be. I made the long haul to Mass. solo so I wasn’t too thrilled with the idea of waiting in line for 45 minutes to ride with a bunch of strangers. Then, I noticed a single rider’s line with virtually no wait. So I walked onto the ride and w...[Read More]
