Next year wildcat will get new trains most likely. I have asked them on instagram a while back and they said that they had until 2015 to get them

I am planning a possible combo trip of here and Six Flags NE on July 4th weekend. I know I can probably expect major crowds at SF (mainly going there for Bizarro) but I was wondering how crowded this park gets, and also if it's worth a full day. It seems surprisingly small given how old it is (super psyched for BD though).

It depends on the crowds, but if it's your first time there, it's likely worth a full day. It really depends on if you just want to do the major attractions or if you're going to want to ride all the flat rides, try some of the food (Pink's...don't miss Pink's!), etc. You could get in a few rides on the coasters and the other unique rides and be out in a few hours, but there'll be enough to do to keep you busy all day if you want, especially if you spend any time in the water park.

If anyone is thinking about going this weekend, Boulder Dash has been closed for the past few days and they haven't been working on it. Seems like their waiting for a part.



My friend and I were supposed to go to sfne but instead we detoured to LC. Bad mistake.

Closed Rides:
Boulder Dash:confused:
Saw Mill Plunge
Croc-O-Nile (water slide as well)
Anchor Bay
Beach
2 kiddie rides

So it was a terrible let down to drive and hour and 20 from RI just to find out that the one outstanding ride was closed. The whole reason we came.
I gotta say, we had a fun time though. Crowds were light, temperature was perfect and it wasn't all that bad.
Ride Count:
Wildcat: 8x
Zoomerang: 3x (wooh new credit!!!)
T&L: 3x
Enterprise: 5x
Ghost Hunt: 1x
Revolution: 1x
Thunder Rapids: 2x
Wipeout: 1x
Downtime: 3x
Riptide Racers: 2x
Lightsout: 1x <3
Mammoth Falls: 1x
Tunnel Twister (orange): 1x


We went right to zoomerang so I could finally get that damn credit! It was the only credit I needed from this park and it broke down the three times I previously attempted it! Pretty smooth for a boomerang. Kinda the same as flashback. I like them both the same. Boomerangs are fine in my book.

Revolution: Total let down. A lot of people say it is really uncomftorable but I just found it boring. It is a nice "flashy" attraction for LC but the rotor is a definite loss. Since this was my first time on a mega disco, I give it a C.

Down Time was definitely under-appreciated in my book. I forgot how good it was. Plus the view is nice.

Riptide Racer's: Another new one for me. Honestly, it didn't look very good but it was actually the best surprise of the day! It's a great ride that tosses you around, the drop isn't as big as funtown's but it's still good. It would be a great fit for Canobie! I give it an A-

Mammoth was not worth the wait, plus I really don't understand why they love to put rocks on the side of the walk way. Going up to it, the rocks were all over the place, it was painful walking to it. Plus it was the one long line of the day.

Lightsout is still the best hands down! So fast and the ending of the slide is insane! Plus it's a lot smoother than those stupid tunnel twisters.

I like the new addition but it's a little strange to me. Everything is so far apart. The tables to johnny rockets were like 500 feet away! lol The new sand area if full of rocks! Not very nice at all but I like how they are spreading out. Another major slide tower is what that park needs. The only real expansion was the restrooms and wave pool, which is good but more slides!

Wildcat's new track improved the ride so much! We actually marathon-ed the ride! In the morning we skipped it because they were running one train and it's line was backed up to the bridge. But they finally put two trains on and it killed the line. The sections where it got some love are great. But the middle section with hills is BRUTAL. The last turn and hills are fun but they don't do anything, the ride dies out after it does up that hill. I didn't even realize that this coaster has buzz bars!!! I love them! But with new trains coming next year, I am excited. I give it a B

Enterprise and T&L are the real thrill flats. The two best of the park. But they run such short programs. LC isn't that busy that they have to cut these rides short. T&L only has 3 full swings! That's so stupid. Both these rides kick ass but they need to be on a longer program.
Hopefully next years addition will be up there with T&L and enterprise because it gets boring here after an hour or two, especially when BD is down and even the flume!

I never realized how small the dry park area is. There's really not a lot to it. It's a nice park but I still take the other two big ones of NE over it (sfne and canobie). They need to expand!

I'm totally going back for the ACE event with BD night runs! The park was fun and I am actually looking forward to my next trip so i can get on the dash.

I hate to ask this but how crowded are we talking? If it's going to be like a two hour wait for BD then I'm not sure we'll bother.

I hope that it is fixed on time as I'll be there for a school trip on Tuesday.

And it never opened today, still waiting on a part. I'm not feeling good about tomorrow, because quite frankly Boulder Dash is the only thing I really love at the park. Looks like I might be riding a lot of flats.
