To be fair, it only ran 1 of the 3 days we were at the park.

Futuristic Thrill Ride Coming to Six Flags New England in 2019

Cyborg Debuts a New Dimension of Thrills

Agawam, MA. — August 30, 2018 —Six Flags New England, the Thrill Capital of New England, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment, today announced its thrilling lineup for the 2019 season. The hi-tech Cyborg attraction, inspired by the DC Super Hero, will premiere in 2019.

“Innovation is part of the Six Flags DNA and Cyborg is a groundbreaking, new attraction that delivers an immersive dark ride experience with incredible special effects,” said Park President Pete Carmichael. “Our DC-branded attractions are extremely popular with our guests and we are excited to add this action-packed ride bearing Cyborg’s name to an already epic lineup of DC Super Hero and Super-Villain attractions in our DC Super Hero Adventures area.”

The CYBORG attraction is an extreme new dark ride experience. Cyborg invites guests to S.T.A.R. Labs to witness a new technological device when the sentient cybernetic system called THE GRID hacks into the mainframe and takes control of the entire lab. Riders find themselves caught up in the battle, spinning and whirling mercilessly through the air, while Cyborg wrestles to regain control of the enormous machine. This thrilling, new attraction offers 360 degrees of pure, heart-pounding adrenaline.

Ride highlights include:

· 24 riders sitting in an outward facing position;

· Quick acceleration reaching maximum speeds while guests whirl through countless rotations of spinning insanity;

· A DC Super Hero story line featuring Cyborg’s battle with an evil DC Super-Villain; and

· State-of-the-art lighting and sound effects.

Is that a Chance Freestyle? Good that it's indoors.


Edited cause I said Discovery instead of Freestyle

I'm pretty sure this is a Tourbillon ride, like the Cyborg ride at SFGAdv and Harley Quinn Spinsanity at SFOT.

I'm curious where it'll be located. I would guess in the DC area with most of the other DC themed rides, but it's getting pretty crowded over there!

The photo looks like a Chance Freestyle like the one Great Escape added this year. Since that'd make Kryptonite (the current wipeout redundant), I'm guessing that may be removed.

I'm guessing this will be down near Superman somewhere.
They could either put it in Kryptonite's plot in an entirely new building or they could put it in the Hall of Justice where Joker's Wildcard once was. I'm hoping for the latter since it'd free up a good plot to work with in the future.

Having ridden Pandemonium, the Freestyle is an improvement over the standard wipeout and Worlds of Fun's Cyclone Sam's showed me just how awesome these types of rides can be if they're placed indoors with effects. Great addition!

^Ahhh, you're right. It's not a Tourbillon, but rather some kind of "dark ride experience." If it's like those other things you described (or even Houdini), that sounds pretty cool to me!

^ Only bummer about putting it near Superman is that area wasn't part of HITP last year and it'd be nice to have another indoor ride when the temperature plummets.

Maybe they'll add that area to HITP. I've been dreaming of a December with either Superman or Wicked Cyclone available.

Agreed. This park needs indoor, temperature controlled rides desperately but I'd bet the house that this is going in that building next to Superman so it won't be open for Holiday in the Park anyway.

That aside, it looks like a ton of fun.
