This is amazing news! While it's a bummer the park's two top coasters won't be open, I really can't complain about having adult coasters available to ride in New England in November and December. I hope the event is a success and can maybe expand to include one of the big coasters down the road.

coasterbill wrote:Yeah, but I think part of the thing that people don't factor in is that people are really used to the temperature wherever they live. When you tell someone from Florida that people in Massachusetts are riding a 55 mph floorless coaster in December they think they're nuts, but when you live they're you really don't care. These same people go to Patriots games when it's zero degrees and throw snow confetti in the air whenever their team c̶h̶e̶a̶t̶s̶ wins. These same people refuse to wear a jacket until it's like 20 degrees outside. They're used to it, they don't care and they'll happily go to this event.

If you dress like you're going skiing it's perfectly comfortable even in 20 degrees. Heck I went skiing a few weeks ago when it was below zero and put on so many layers on I was overheating.

I don't know what you are talking about with the cheating accusations ;) There's nothing wrong with watching some homemade movies and giving that air back to the community. New Englanders will defend Tom Brady and Belichick like we defend Canobie Lake Park.

Season passes.

I hope this isn't a bad place to ask about this, but Six Flags New England has a deal on on season passes. Right now they seem to have one running through the weekend. I already bought a gold pass for myself and my daughter last year, but I'm hoping to buy one for my niece. It's only $73.99 if you have four people and $133.99 for 1-3 people. I've only been able to find one other person who might be willing to get one. So, I'm wondering if anyone knows anywhere to find buying groups or if they want to form a buying group?

Congrats for landing HITP. You guys will love it. It was a big hit here in St. Louis and you'd be hard pressed to find someone who didn't have a great time when they visited.

As Bill already said, in the event that weather is ok enough and the crowds are there, they will probably be able to bring more of the rides online temporarily. They did it several times at SFSL. Also, hopefully your B&M can be equipped with the vaunted "winter wheels"!

I'm a huge fan of HITP and my family has already planned to visit ours again around Christmas. Riding in the cold with the park lit up is a great experience. If it's successful at SFNE I'd guess all parks in the chain will have it soon enough.
