    Six Flags New England loose article policy

    Zippered pockets are fine for all their rides. Ka, Toro, and Joker are the only rides in all of Six Flags with that no-items-at-all policy.

    Quick lost season pass questions

    The only thing you may need the pass for is the season terror trail pass during Fright Fest, but how they handle it changes a bit each year. A few years they used to put a sticker on your season pass, so you needed the card then. The past year or two, they've given a separate business card and wrote the last 4 digits of your season pass on it, which a security guard then checks with your season pass at each trail entrance. Not sure if they required the pass or allowed the app for that.
  6. The other interesting thing is that there aren't even motors on the side that they're working on. (At least, from what's visible & what I assume) Each ring has a big motor on one side and a slightly smaller silver metal cylinder on the opposing side. I'm not sure what the silver cylinder is, but it's smaller than its opposing motor and doesn't look like the usual ride motor. My best guess is that it's something to keep a balanced force/torque on both sides of the ring (a small motor?), but I assume it is not the main rotating force for the ring. Both the green motor and the silver cylinder are visible in the same pic, and the green motor seems larger than silver cylinder. Does the green motor go inside the ring or the lift arm's connection to the ring? First pic shows how the motors/cylinders line up in the home/resting position. Both cylinders are on the side they're working on in Harry's photo.
  7. I'm very curious about that motor they put on. It looks much bigger than the existing motors, and it's green.

    Discovery Kingdom also already has a Larson Giant Loop, so good luck with that.

    Some were already bent and damaged, I believe just from the installation.

    My guess for the first thing to be vandalized are the thin decorative pieces meant to look like a circuit board. They can easily be bent and the fence right in front of the ride will be a pretty high-traffic area for that.

    Not sure if it's solid/filled or empty, but the top half of that inner ring is subtly larger than the bottom half with the seats. As in, if you were to detach the seats, the top would be bulkier and heavier. That's gotta be just a tiny amount of difference, though. I'm sure with the seats, they'd want the seat side to be heavier so that the gondola would rest right-side-up in a failure.
