Six Flags Theme Parks
Park News - (8/19/2023) According to a post on Facebook, Six Flags New England will be removing the park’s Bonzai Pipelines and apparently has no plans to replace it with anything yet. Previously this year it was noticed that the slides were no longer listed on the official website, and have never opened for the season, despite only being 10 years old. No word has been given as to why the Bonzai Pipelines may be removed from the park, though based on the actions of other parks elsewhere, sometimes slides are removed unexpected following guest lawsuits.
(3/13/2023) In a post by Coaster Chit Chat, a number of enhancements are coming to Six Flags New England this season, in addition to the previously announced Dino Off Road Adventure. A number of food and beverage improvements are coming including a Yamas! Greek Cruise, Pink Elephant Wine & Kid Slushies, a new Dino themed food stand, the arrival of some fun food trucks with changing menus to be run by the park and more. They also confirmed that the Bonzai Pipelines slides will remain closed for the 2023 season for some reason. I don’t know if the plan is for removal, or if there is some other issue to address.
(2/28/2023) Six Flags New England has posted a bit of a teaser that something new is coming to the park this season. The announcement will take place tomorrow, March 1st, 2023, but what they’ve posted is a classic word search that supposedly contains hints.
I don’t think they’re going to come out and just say it in the search, but readers have noticed there are a few food item words in there like Pizza, Popcorn, Pie, Pretzel, etc, along with others assorted odd words like Sunglasses, Fun and Family. Meanwhile I’m told that they may try to pull off some kind of park wide celebration event this summer, so the collection of subjects could be related to that.
(2/26/2023) I hate to bring this up, but a reader has pointed out that the Bonzai Pipelines waterslides are no longer listed on the Six Flags New England website or app. In terms of additions to the waterpark, this would be one of the newer additions, having opened in 2013. It is very possible this may be a programming mistake however, as the attraction’s old page is still on the website and will load if you known the URL so we’ll have to wait and see.
(2/19/2023) Six Flags New England has removed Nightwing upcharge Slingshot style ride from their website and app, which could indicate that the ride will be removed from service before the park opens for the season.
(10/8/22) Six Flags may be intending to turn all the waterparks that used to be included with admission into a second paid gate. What is confirmed so far is if you look at the benefits for the different tiered 2023 Season Passes at Six Flags New England, the lower tier (Gold) no longer includes access to Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. You will have to pay more to purchase the Platinum tier pass to regain access to Six Flags Hurricane Harbor for the 2023 season.
2023 - Dino Off Road Adventure - (5/28/2023) Some fun new pictures of the Dino Off Road Adventure ride at Six Flags New England were posted to Facebook this weekend, and you can see some of it in action in the video clip below that. While this is really just a themed overlay over a previously existing kids rides, the end result here is very cute.
(5/25/2023) According to the local news, Six Flags New England will open their new Dino Off Road Adventure attraction this Saturday.
(5/6/2023) Several new pictures showing off the new Dino Off Road Adventure attraction progress were sent in to Screamscape today. A lot of progress has been made, and unlike last week, we can now see that many Dinosaurs have now been installed along the route.
(5/3/2023) An anonymous reader sent in a picture of the new Dino Off Road Adventure attraction from Six Flags New England.
(3/5/2023) Six Flags New England has announced an interesting new attraction for families this season called Dino Off Road Adventure. Apparently this will be a re-theme of the existing Wild Wheelz jeep driving ride, but the landscape you drive around will now be filled in with life-sized dinosaur figures, some of which will feature sounds and animatronic movements.
