New England SkyScreamer

It’s official. Coming in 2014, Six Flags New England will introduce the tallest attraction in the park’s history, and the tallest swing ride on the planet: A brand new record-breaking swing ride. The New England Sky Screamer will be the tallest of its kind in the world, lifting riders up over 400 feet in the air, swinging them around at an exhilarating 40 miles per hour, and feature breathtaking views and stomach-churning spins.

The New England Sky Screamer will be the newest landmark of the Six Flags New England skyline. As the tallest swing ride in the world, this record-breaking spinning tower stands over 40 stories above the ground and provides an adrenaline rush like no other. First, you and 23 brave flyers will strap into your open-air seat with your legs dangling above the ground. The New England Sky Screamer will start to swing you around in a circle as you elevate to the very top of the tower to touch the sky, eventually reaching heart-pounding speeds of 40 miles per hour and heights of 400 feet. You’ll be so high up that only the birds will hear you scream.

The ride will provide a beautiful panoramic view of the entire park and surrounding areas, including the Connecticut River and New England horizon, before it all whirls around in a blur. When you look down, you’ll see your feet swinging below you and aerial views of all your favorite attractions. You’ll soar around and around with the wind in your hair before coming back down the tower and landing on the ground.

The extreme New England Sky Screamer is set to debut in summer 2014. Are you ready to take on this all-new swing?

thom25 replied the topic: Cyclone 2015 Teaser
Six Flags will be announcing all of their 2015 plans at the end of the month, while some parks like SFNE have already closed rides like Cyclone. We all suspect that Cyclone will be re-done with Rocky Mountain Track, and the park has released via Twitter, the teaser below.

I think the Cyclone transformation is going to be very special based on this!

Wicked Cyclone
[/size][/b][/size]

The Thrill Capital of New England will be opening a new state-of-the-art roller coaster that integrates the latest in ride technology and innovation in 2015, Wicked Cyclone.

Wicked Cyclone will offer the ultimate in thrills and adrenaline combining the extreme characteristics of both steel and wood to build the first hybrid roller coaster to hit the East Coast.

The highly anticipated Wicked Cyclone, will be storming into Six Flags New England, summer 2015 and will be a “must ride” for the ultimate thrill seekers. Guests will travel from around the globe to visit as they experience this world class attraction.


Facts: Wicked Cyclone
[/b]
3,320 feet of track
10 stories
Speeds of up to 55 mph
24 seats climbs the 109 foot hill
First coaster of its kind to have a 200 degree stall and two Zero G Rolls


Riders will experience a smoother, faster and more intense ride along its 3,320 feet of track on Wicked Cyclone. The intense Hybrid coaster integrating both wood and steel stands 10 stories in the sky and reaches maximum speeds of up to 55 mph.



Wicked Cyclone will be the first coaster of its kind to have a 200-degree stall and two Zero-G Rolls. Riders will also be able to experience more airtime than any other coaster in New England on Wicked Cyclone.





Once the twenty-four thrill seekers board Wicked Cyclone, it quickly climbs the 109-foot hill to then plummet at maximum speeds while providing riders with weightlessness and a truly wicked ride.

thom25 replied the topic: Sky Way to be removed - RUMOR
Screamscape reports that Six Flags New England may retire their classic Von Roll Sky Way attraction at the end of the season. Unlike your typical Von Roll skyride you may have seen elsewhere over the years, the one running at Six Flags New England features unique globe shaped cars that were originally built and run at Coney Island back in 1963 before being moved to the New England park in 1973. It’s sad to see a classic ride with a history like this retired.

You can see the plaque and pictures below:
