"The two coasters we're creating offer incredibly unique experiences
designed to be shared with family and friends," said Mark Kane, Six Flags New
England vice president and general manager. "Their selection, specifically
for this park, continues our ongoing commitment to providing excellent guest
service and a promise of good times for our visitors."
Dancing five stories above the ground, Mr. Six's Pandemonium will take
park Guests on an all-new ride experience creating a new spin on the typical
roller coaster. Face-to-face in individual 4-person cars, Guests will enjoy
more than a quarter mile of totally unique fun, shared with family and
friends. This roller coaster spins like a top while moving up and down
through hairpin turns and plummeting spirals. Each ride that Guests take on
Mr. Six's Pandemonium will be different, just like the master of playtime
himself. No other coaster will leave you dizzy with laughter like Mr. Six's
Making a huge splash at Hurricane Harbor, Typhoon will offer park goers a
unique thrill only to be experienced at Hurricane Harbor. Typhoon offers an
extreme 3-person rafting experience. The water coaster's rocket propelled
water and conveyer belts blast riders though a serpentine series of high bank
turns, enclosed tunnels and up hill climbs at racing speeds. Typhoon's
technology includes higher and faster uphill sections than any existing water
coaster in the country. The thrill of a traditional coaster gets "all wet"
with the 2005 debut of Typhoon!
"When we considered adding two new coasters to Six Flags New England's
already spectacular line-up, we knew we had to create something as grand and
legendary as the park itself, so we called in the expert on family fun,
Mr. Six," said Mark Kane, Six Flags New England vice president and general
manager. "His fun-loving style and wild dance moves provided the perfect
inspiration for Mr. Six's Pandemonium."
"The Typhoon water coaster is also a perfect fit for our park," Kane
added. "Hurricane Harbor is by far the biggest and most popular water park in
New England and we continue to make it even better. The new water coaster
technology employed by Typhoon offers our patrons an action packed thrill ride
that also beats the summer heat!"
Mr. Six's Pandemonium will debut in early Spring 2005 and Typhoon will
make its debut with the opening of the 2005 season at Hurricane Harbor. Six
Flags New England opens for the 2005 season on April 16.
