Six Flags New England

 

 

Yesterday, I took the kids and Travis' friend Ana to Six Flags New England.  It is a 2 1/2 hr ride.  Spent $40 in gas for the round trip!  It was hot, crowded and expensive!  I spent alot of dough.  Spent extra for a Flash pass for two so we can go to the head of the line on the rides.  Sort of the head of the line.  Saved alot of waiting in lines however so it was worth it.  We rode (Ana and I), the Scream.  That is a tower that brings you up over 200 ft and then drops you.  There is a pic in the gallery.  We rode the Mind Eraser.  I almost puked after!  The Batman ride.  Had to close my eyes.  Almost puked.  The Superman ride is the best.  You go up a huge hill over 200 ft and get dropped straight down!  Then you rush right into a tunnel and go around beds and corkscrews at over 70 mph!  All with just a little bar on your lap.  We got alot of airtime.  Then you go down and rush into a dark tunnel with misters in it.  I love that ride!   Travis and Ana went on a few rides together and Sarah too.  Sarah was disappointed that she didn't get to go on alot of rides.  It was very crowded.  Long lines too.  Alot of city folk.  I saw more tattoos, gold and bling then in a jewelry store!  Very urban type crowd.  If anyone decides to go I would recommend getting the flash pass.  Its worth it.  Go on a weekday before school is out for the year too.  Avoid the crowds.  If you want soda go to a place with fountain soda and get the large for 3.99.  Don't get a bottle for 3.50.  You get alot more in the large soda.  Enough for 3.  Or get the cup with free refills with the wristband.  Make sure you get the wristband too!  Its free.  Just don't forget to ask.  Otherwise the re-fills are 99c.  Bring comfortable shoes for walking and sunscreen!  Have fun!  Vote on my photo above!  Be honest, don't just say yes to be nice!

I couldn't go on any of those rides! I can't do it because of my heart and I wouldn't do it anyway! I like to keep my feet on the ground. Isn't Travis tall now?! He's so grown up. The photos are great, I'm glad you had a good time. Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/

I would not be able to face any of those rides so good for you.  Sounds like places over here where you have to stand in line but you cannot buy a pass that makes the wait shorter.

Sounds like a great time, I love rollecoasters!  I think it's awesome you went on Superman!  It is expensive to go to the parks anymore and you do drop a bundle.  I like the photo, enter it.

There was a short period in my twenties that I like roller coasters. I dont do them anymore...I get too sick! I have never heard of the flash pass...does that make the others in line mad? When people are able to get in front like that? I hope not! Sounds like it was a fun and exciting day! Hot, but fun. :) Kelly
