    AGAWAM, Mass., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Six Flags New England is
 opening not one, but two new coasters in 2005 -- one wet and one wild!  The
 two new family thrill rides include Mr. Six's Pandemonium, the first ever
 coaster inspired by the fun loving dance moves of Six Flags' popular
 ambassador of fun, Mr. Six; and Typhoon, a cutting-edge water coaster powered
 by exclusive "Rocket Booster" technology.

     "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.

 Harbor are the leaders in family Playtime all the time!  Don't miss the best
