New England floorless goes vertical

Posted Sunday, December 9, 2001 8:17 AM | Contributed by themeparkne

One big support is in place and a lot more track and parts are on site at Six Flags New England. A lot of progress has also been made on the station. It appears that the retractable floors for a floorless station have also arrived.

Its just starting to look so weird. Where's my good old SFNE that i used  to know? I didn't think they would put the station right there.

When are we gonna hear anything regarding the construction of SFA's rumored B&M stand up?Personally I don't think it's gonna happen. If it were we would be seeing some sort of construction updates like the updates for SFNE,KBF,CP and all the other parks that are building coasters for 02.More than likely whoever said they spotted green B&M track while on S:ROS must have mistaken it for the defunct Python's track.which from that distance may appear to have a greenish color to it.If anyone has any updates please post them soon. *** This post was edited by BATWING FAN SFA on 12/9/2001. ***

yeah it's getting very different looking.  It's interesting to see before "Six Flags" and after pictures of SFNE/Riverside.  It's really nice to see that Six Flags inc. cares about this park and continues to invest money in them.  I'm happy they're not one of the neglected Six Flags parks.

Did anyone notice how high and steep the lift is going to be? I mean if this coaster is only gonna be 117ft tall, would't you think that the lift would not be that steep and the first lift support not that high? Just a thought... -Chris

You should see how small the area for this coaster is.  If you picture a straight line from the end of Superman's overbanked turn to the southern most point in Island Kingdom, that's all the space this coaster will take up.  The ride is not really taking up any of the parking lot, just using some space that is doing nothing.  It's very cool that they're doing such a great job conserving space because it is at a premium at Six Flags New England.

I think it has to be that steep because have you seen the alotment of space they have given the lift. It's tiny.

I have seen the area for the new coaster. It isn't too small. Space isn't as much a premium as people seem to think. They have so much room across the street for parking lot, that they can easily afford to expand into all of the lots on the park-side of the road. But afer that, expansion will be almost over ,except for some nooks and crannies on the north side of the park. Hopefully they will continue to build compact coasters in these parking lots.

This coaster is gonna be the balls!  And after next summer when the park breaks all kinds of attendence records, Six Flags will realize how hot SFNE can be and we'll get that huge out and back CCI woodie we've been missing!

BFS, come on, you seem to interject something about SFA in a lot of topics that have nothing to do with SFA. Please take a break.
