Last Sunday, my family and I were invited to spend the day Six Flags New England. Sadly, my husband, Chris, had reserves, so I packed up the gruesome twosome and headed out on the almost two hour drive to get to the park.
We were impressed as soon as we got there. All you could see were roller coasters as far as the eye could see. Six Flags New England has 11 roller coasters on their 284 acre property!
Our first stop of the day was Looney Tunes movie town. There are all sorts of rides appropriate for little ones in that section and the boys had a blast going on all the rides.
Our very first ride of the day was The Scrambler. Those of you who know me know that I don’t do well on spinning rides, but since my five year old wasn’t tall enough to go alone with his brother alone – and I was the only adult with them, I ended up going on it with them.
Next up was Taz’s Prop Delivery Company, which is a monster truck trek.
After a few more rides over in that section, we headed over to Kidzopolis, which had even more kid-friendly rides.
My little guy LOVED Whirlybirdz helicopter ride.
Both boys loved driving down Route 66 on the antique cars. They rode this ride over and over again.
The boys went on the Krazy Kars in Kidzopolis multiple times as well.
The highlight of the day by far was the Hall of Justice.
Inside, there were all sorts of computers for the kids to play with and buttons to press. And even better, we met some super heroes in there. The day we went we met Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman. The boys loved it.
And afterwards, they got a chance to go inside of Superman’s phone booth!
There were many Looney Tunes characters out and about through out the park, too. Plus, we also saw Scooby and Scrappy Doo hanging around to meet the kids.
We aren’t a roller coaster family, so we didn’t go on one, but the top coasters: Goliath (just added to SFNE last summer), Batman, Mind Eraser and the Bizarro coaster (pictured below) bring in big crowds to Six Flags New England.
We had a full day and even managed to squeeze in about an hour at Hurricane Harbor, which is New England’s largest water park. And guess what, that was free with park admission.
We had an amazing day at Six Flags and I am thankful that they invited us to be their guests for the day so that we could check out the park for ourselves. My boys had never been and the last time I was there was a good ten years ago or so.
And last, but not least, at one point during the day, we ran into Daffy’s Dance Party in which Daffy led kids in some popular dances. As soon as the Cha Cha slide came on, my little man’s face lit up. He learned that dance recently at school for their big kindergarten dance, so he got right in on the action:
Oh, and SFNE has a new weather guarantee program, too. If the weather causes a majority of their rides to close for an extended period, they will offer a complimentary return pass. Just present your ticket stub at guest relations before you leave.
