The New Bizarro Coaster-- Same But Different
Written by D-Man O'Connell
The 2 new Bizarro coasters are opening in Six Flags New England in Massachusetts and Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey. They both opened over memorial day weekend.Tweet
The former Superman:Ride of Steel at SFNE was taken over by Bizarro. The differences were: the color of the track changed to purple, props such as 2-D buildings were put up, fire bursts were installed close to the track, and fog and lights were put into the tunnels for an inhanced ride experience. Also, the coaster cars were redone. They installed loud-almost too loud stereos in the back of the seat, and the lap bar is different and pushes down on you more.
The former Medusa in SFGAdv was also turned into a Bizarro coaster, with the same differences as the one in New England. Both of the coasters' tracks were not changed at all, so they both deliver the same thrill and airtime that we know and love.
I have had the pleasure of riding Bizarro at SFNE last Wednesday, and boy did it pack a punch. Six Flags took the world's best steel roller coaster, and pushed it over the line. Now, you will be trembling with excitement before and after you get on/off the ride. SFGAdv's Bizarro probably grants the same affect on the riders and coaster lovers.
