Six Flags New England

The current version of this description is at .

Location: Six Flags New England is located off Route 159 in greater Springfield, Massachusetts, in the nearby town of Agawam, Massachusetts.

Six Flags New England
Route 159, 1623 Main Street
Agawam, MA 01001

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.

Hours: http://www.sixflags.com/newEngland/info/parkInfo.aspx. Six Flags New England is open from April through Halloween.

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 headliner attractions first (coasters). Once the coaster tour is complete, make sure to hit Houdini - The Great Escape as it is a fairly unique theme park experience.

Coming In 2011: A new family coaster will be added to the park next year called Gotham City Gauntlet: Escape from Arkham Asylum. This Maurer-Sohne Wild Mouse coaster, recently reclaimed from Kentucky Kingdom, was formerly named Road Runner Express. -- Last edited by James Rao on February 8, 2011
