It looks like Six Flags New England will not be getting a new indoor roller coaster, after all.

Almost two months after local officials ordered construction to stop after a permit snafu, Six Flags has announced that it will not go ahead with the announced "Dark Knight Coaster" project. Work that has been completed on the project will be dismantled.

Six Flags officials in a press release cited an inability to get the coaster finished by its planned Memorial Day opening as a reason for canceling the project.

That really sux. I bet Six Flags is upset too because this will bring down attendence. It is also a real let down to anyone who goes to that park. a real disapointment.

I don't understand why the whole project has to be cancelled. It seems to me that they can just stop construction while the permits are filed and once they're granted, start back up. They could at least have the coaster available for next season. Granted, the park will miss out on the synergy of the new movie release but they're throwing away a ton of money by giving up at this point.
