Six Flags New England is located in Agawam, Massachusetts. Click here for a look at what's new at the theme park for the 2012 season. Past years' new developments are featured below.
Here's what was new in 2011...
Gotham City Gauntlet
In April 2011, Six Flags New England will unveil its tenth roller coaster. Gotham City Gauntlet: Escape from Arkham Asylum promises to be one insane ride. After a five-story climb, the coaster spins and twirls through 17 hairpin turns, with a few twists and unexpected dips thrown in for good measure.
2011's big new show at Six Flags New England is Survivor Live, an interactive stage show inspired by the long-running Survivor reality series. The show, which pits selected audience members against each other in challenges of endurance, memory and strength, debuts at the park Memorial Day weekend and will be staged daily except Wednesdays during the season.
Here's what was new in 2010...
Mr. Six's Splash Island
On May 28, 2010, little swimmers got a splashy spot all their own at Six Flags New England's Hurricane Harbor Water Park. The 16,000-square-foot, all-new Mr. Six's Splash Island features a 30,000-gallon shaded wave pool designed specifically for little ones and a 150-foot interactive lazy river with dumping coconuts, rain curtains and squirting water. Ten new luxury cabanas furnished with lounge chairs, personal lockers, refrigerators and flat screen TVs will be available to rent poolside: Renters can even avail themselves of the services of a personal wait staff.
Here's what was new in 2009...
Over Memorial Day weekend 2009, Six Flags New England unveiled BIZARRO, the transformation of the park's Superman: Ride of Steel. The redesigned thrill ride is a multi-sensory experience featuring new coaster cars with custom-built audio in each headrest, two fog-filled tunnels, fiery flame effects and more surprises. The BIZARRO experience begins the moment guests enter the ride queue lines through a custom-created comic designed by DC Comics. Before boarding the roller coaster, guests learn about the villainous BIZARRO character--an imperfect duplicate of Superman--and his destructive takeover of the attraction.
Guests soar to remarkable heights on a new slingshot ride that launches them more than 20 stories into the New England sky before they shoot back to earth for a touchdown. An additional fee applies for this ride.
Johnny Rockets Express
Step right up and order. Johnny Rockets shakes, fries, onion rings and chicken tenders are all on the menu at this new express version of one of the park's most popular restaurants.
Here's what was new in 2008...
Six Flags Thrilleaders
In 2008, Six Flags became the first theme park chain to have its own professional cheerleading squad.
The Longest Season Ever
Six Flags New England is advertising 2008 as its longest season ever--147 days of fun and thrills. That makes this an ideal year to buy a Season Pass.
Here's what was new in 2007...
There isn't a preschooler in New England who doesn't know the Wiggles, I'll wager, and that means Six Flags New England is the place to be if you're traveling with tiny tots. Six Flags New England's new Wiggles World will feature themed rides and attractions including the Big Red Car ride, the Big Red Plane ride, Dorothy's Rosy Tea Cups, Wags Doggie-Copters and the S.S. Feathersword Pirate Ship, plus appearances by the Wiggles' friends including Dorothy the Dinosaur, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus. Kids will also want to dine at the Yummy Yummy Café. Wiggles World will open with the park on April 14, 2007.
Need another reason to bring your little ones to Six Flags New England? Thomas Town, a Thomas the Tank Engine themed area of the park, also makes its debut later in 2007. Starting in early summer, families can climb aboard the Thomas the Tank Engine train ride, visit with Sir Topham Hatt and also hop on the Harold the Helicopter ride and the Bertie the Bus ride.
Here's what was new in 2006...
Catapult is a high-flying thrill ride that will take you 100 feet in the air, then spin you silly, whirling 360 degrees forward and backward. Painted in bright shades of yellow, burnt orange and steely blue, you won't be able to miss it at the north end of the park.
Splash Water Falls
Six Flags' Hurricane Harbor water park gets a new wet-and-wild, six-person boat ride this year. Splash Water Falls whirls and twirls adventurous families over multiple spirals, drops, twists and turns while spinning continuously down a brightly colored river channel. Riders encounter splashy thrills while cruising past misters and geysers that spray cool water high into the air. Spectators can also join in the fun, blasting unsuspecting riders with water cannons located on the sidelines. (Media photo © Six Flags New England)
Here's what was new in 2005...
Mr. Six's Pandemonium
Six Flags New England's newest thrill ride is the five-story, wildly spinning Pandemonium, Mr. Six's first signature roller coaster. Head to the park this year to be one of the first to try this new ride. You may want to try it twice, actually, as the park claims that no two rides are the same.
Prefer something wild and WET? Also new for 2005, the Typhoon water coaster's rocket-propelled water and conveyer belts blast riders though a series of high bank turns, enclosed tunnels and uphill climbs at racing speeds. Typhoon's technology includes higher and faster uphill sections than any existing water coaster in the country.
Here's what was new in 2003...
A Dramatically Enlarged Water Park
The former Island Kingdom Water Park was renamed Hurricane Harbor in 2003. The new water park is nearly double the size of the old park, making it one of the premier water parks in the country. Hurricane Harbor features nine new tube slides and a second wave pool, Monsoon Lagoon, with a kids' activity area. Deck areas have been expanded and the number of available lounge chairs nearly tripled from 700 to 2,0000. Hurricane Harbor opened on May 24, 2003. Admission is free with admission to Six Flags New England.
More Looney Tunes Characters
Speedy Gonzalez, Marvin the Martian, Yosemite Sam, Wile E. Coyote and Porky Pig join the cast of Looney Tunes characters available to meet and greet their fans at the theme park.
