Six Flags New England is adding two new rides for the 2006 season. Catapult is an S&S Swat ride, while Splash Water Falls is a family spinning water rapids ride.
Read the press release from Six Flags New England.

SplashWater falls? That's pretty funny, if any of you have ever listened to Luadcris's song by the same name you would know why.

The ride vidoe of Catapult and SplashWater falls looks like a coastercam video from RCT3. I did not even know that a Sky Swat from RCT3 existed or that SFNE took there design. If any one knows about that let me know.
The site that the video is on is: http://www.prnewswire.com/mnr/sixflags/23669/ *** This post was edited by Hamster Boy 2/23/2006 8:36:13 PM ***

Owww....:( Oppps...:( I thought that a Sky Swat was kind of unconventional. the lines and load time for that ride must be very slow.

^Load times are pretty slow for the ride. It is a great ride though.
I'm still a little freaked out about the Sky Swats after witnessing Thorpe's strand both sets of riders upside down for more than 10 minutes.
