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.
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 2016: Six Flags announced the park will be getting a Larson Fireball, a compact looping – reversing roller coaster/flat ride, similar to the carnival style ride several Six Flags parks received in 2015. More importantly, Bizarro, arguably the best steel coaster on the planet, will be reverting back to its original theme and be relaunched as Superman the Ride.
