^ So they got the 2nd train back and basically took it right off again? That's going to be rough for the rest of the summer if it's true.

That would be correct. I also heard the wait was pushing 4 hours for most of the day.

So I was going to wait for my first post to be a Trip Report as I am currently at Six Flags New England for three days with my family, but I figured I would give an update on some of the rides in the park. Yesterday, Goliath (shocker), Harley Quinn, and Crime Wave were all down. Not sure if Crime Wave was down all day, but was a bummer to see Harley Quinn sitting there without anyone attempting to get it running. Any idea what is up with it?

Oh, and here is me super excited getting to the park early only to find out Wicked Cyclone didn’t open for another hour after opening!

Other than opening day when the park hasn't completed testing on it, Wicked Cyclone has opened with the park in my past visits.

I got a ride in on Harley Quinn shortly after a breakdown on Tuesday afternoon, but just after I rode it went down for what ended up being the rest of the night. Not sure what was up. They tested it a few times before giving up.

Also noticed a ladder underneath Crime Wave so something might be up with that too.

Can I park my donkey here?

Hi I just wanted to give a quick update based on the last review.

I was at the park yesterday and Harley Quinn was still down, Superman had the one train but it wasn't busy so the wait wasn't to bad. Goliath has a sign up closed for refurbishment and Crime Wave is completely dismantled. I wasn't able to get any info maybe someone else knows.

Wicked Cyclone was down for a bit so didn't get to ride it. We spent most of the day in the water park which was not that crowded. I don't even try to go on the weekends anymore. It is just way too crowded. The water park was staggering some of the guards and opening the walk through river and pool later. Typhoon is down to one raft. The line was crazy.

We have found that eating at the Good Eats Cafe across from JB 's is very good. We enjoy salads and the salad bar is nice. The teens said the pasta and the brisket were good also.

Overall a typical day there. I am hoping to get back up a couple more times before school starts. I am glad that my home park is only 45 minutes away.

One train on Superman plus Goliath and Harley Quinn being down in the middle of the summer is a bummer. But luckily it wasn't too crowded for you on a weekday.

I'm really horrified to hear how long Superman's line will get on a busy weekend day until that 2nd train comes back.

^ That line usually takes an hour in summer running at its peak capacity. That's not good!

Hi that is what the attendant told my daughter. Actually when we were there last week they only had 3 tubes. She said that two had popped. How does a company like 6 flags not have tube replacements. I have seen the line long before but it was down all flights of stairs at 11:20.
