As we get closer and closer to April 7th, 2018, we wanted to talk about the Top 10 things to do in 2018, to get everybody excited for Opening Day !
Superman The Ride : This is Six Flag’s New England’s fan favorite in the park ! Standing at 208 Ft. Tall with a 221ft tall drop , This amazing coaster was built in 2000 and still ranks within the TOP 5 Roller Coasters in the world ! It won the Golden Ticket award for #1 Coaster in the world 5 times ! Fans know it and love it ! It is one thing you do not want to miss on any visit ! Head to the DC Hero’s Adventure section of the park !
Holiday In The Park : This event began its first year in 2017 and will return for 2018 during the Holiday Season ! With tons of lights, a variety of Holiday Themed Food, The Show : Frost . Also don’t forget you can visit Santa at Santa’s Workshop the park! There is so much to do during Holiday In The Park , one visit is just not enough ! it was a home run for 2017 and I expect it only to grow and become bigger and more popular as the years go by !
FOOD at Six Flags New England : There are a lot of places to eat at the park and there are some hidden GEMS along the way from the typical park food of Cheeseburgers, Pizza & Chicken Fingers ! You could start with JB’s Smokehouse located in CrackAxle Canyon and get a Slow Cooked Pork Sandwich or Hand Seasoned Beef Brisket Sandwich! Get Wraps or Salad’s at Riverboat Café ! Head to the Filling Station in Rockville for a Conewhich or a Mac N Cheese Sandwich! Want Mexican Food? Then head to Macho Nacho !

Hurricane Harbor : Six Flags New England has one amazing Water Park ! Tons of different slides, Wave Pools, Lazy River and a bunch of stuff for the little kids to do as well !
Extreme slides like Bonzai Pipeline with the floor dropping right out from under you as you plummet at 40 MPH ! Cannon Ball Falls is another favorite , well that’s if you have the courage to take the plunge ! Typhoon which is one of my personal favorites is more like a water roller coaster with hairpin turns while sitting in a 3 person tube going along for an adrenaline rush! Once your done, I’m pretty sure you will get back in line for another ride ! Now if you really want to get some courage head on over to Tornado, 132ft funnel and dropping into it is part of the fun, until you get some momentum, rocking back and forth until you head to the end into the pool !
There are plenty of slides for all the thrill seekers, but for those not looking to get your adrenaline pumping, don’t worry Six Flags New England has you covered ! You can head over to Adventure River and grab a tube and relax as the slow current takes you through winding paths , waterfalls and amazing scenery, while cooling off from those really hot days ! You could also head over to Hurricane bay, they do have a smaller wave pool, but you can swim on over to the lagoon and float around and take in the sun and cool off !
Don’t worry little ones , we know that you aren’t big enough just yet to get on the bigger slides, but there is still enough for those little boys & girls to have fun while trying to cool off ! First you can take a stop by : Splash Island, its for kids and a first step to getting them ready for bigger water attractions ! Now you can move on down to the Kiddie Pirate Ship or the Kiddie Octopus and of course lets not forget Hook’s Lagoon, complete with climbing structures, a big giant bucket that dumps tons of water on you and is very shallow !
If your not exactly into getting into the water, but took the kids to cool off and wanting to relax by the pool, well there are many options and many places to do so and many places to get some drinks & food as well !
Coral Reef located near Hurricane Bay serves : Salads, Wraps, Pizza, Chicken Tenders, Fries, Bottle and Draft Beer. Cowabunga Burger over by Commotion Ocean ” Wave Pool ” Serves : Hamburgers, Corn Dogs, Shakes, Chicken Tenders, Fries, Onion Rings . Looking to get some drinks? Head over to the Wahoo’s Tiki Bar that serves : Chips, Bottle and Draft Beer, Wine, Frozen Margaritas, Pina Coladas, Strawberry…
Hurricane Harbor truly feels like a tropical Island and some where to relax and get away on those hot summer days !
