Looking for Tips on Visiting Six Flags New England

We are Mom, Dad, and three daughters, 7, 10, 12. We are visiting Six Flags NE for the first time in 20 years this Saturday, (Just one day) This is a special request of my youngest girl who is turning 7. I hate to go to any theme park without some "insider knowledge", but my wife and I have not been to this park since it was "Riverside".
Any tips to make our trip more enjoyable? I am particularly looking for "rip-off" alerts, "when-to-do-what" tips, and "what-not-to-miss" tips.
Thanks

Great choice for Kids!! I loved Riverside, but Six Flags has cleaned it up a great deal. Newly painted buildings, walkways, and decent themeing.
Rides not to miss:
Superman: Ride of Steel
The Orginal Merry-Go-Round
Skyride
Thunderbolt
Hurricane Harbor
Mr. Six's Pandemonium
Batman: The Dark Knight
River Rapids
Log Flume

RIDES NOT TO GO ON:
Mind Eraser(very intense roller coaster from Riverside which may hurt the kid's heads and your's)

Cyclone(a classic yet very painful)

In terms of eating, there is an excellent Subway restaurant located next to Flashback, and others are great too. Food is pretty expensive(especially the drinks) so having the kid's share is a great idea.

Hope you find this helpfull, enjoy your day at Six Flags New England!!
