History: Six Flags New England was formerly known as Riverside Park, due to its eastern border being on the Connecticut River. Six Flags bought the park in 2000.

Tickets: Buy and print online. Always try to buy your tickets in advance, to save time when you get to the park.

Reservations: Six Flags New England sells Flash Passes, which offer priority boarding opportunities. For much more, you can buy a VIP tour, which allows you and your group to skip all the lines.

Strategy: As with any amusement park, arrive early (at least :30 minutes before opening) and hit the coasters first, starting with Bizarro, in the back of the park.

New for 2012: Déjà Vu, a Vekoma inverted Boomerang coaster, will be moved from Six Flags Magic Mountain to Six Flags New England. -- Last edited by James Rao on August 17, 2011
