Six Flags New England has sent us a press release about their latest addition, Mr. Six's Splash Island.

New England’s largest water park, Hurricane Harbor, proves once again why it’s the ideal family destination, today announcing a new attraction for 2010 – Mr. Six’s Splash Island. Based on Six Flags’ popular rater of fun, Mr. Six’s Splash Island will open to the public on May 28 with 16,000 square feet of drenching thrills and relaxation for the entire family.

Mr. Six’s Splash Island will boast a 30,000 gallon shaded wave pool designed specifically for the little ones, a 150-foot interactive lazy river with dumping coconuts, rain curtains and squirting effects to keep kiddos cool in the hot New England sun. The fun continues with water bubblers and fountains throughout the area. Mom and dad can relax in style with ten new luxury cabanas set poolside and offering lounge chairs, personal fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo, refrigerators, a flat screen TV and a personal wait staff. Also new for the 2010 season Johnny Rockets the place where everyone can enjoy all-American favorites – hamburgers, shakes and fries served with a smile located next to Mr. Six’s Splash Island!

“Mr. Six has become an iconic character at Six Flags and we are excited to have the first Mr. Six’s Splash Island,” said Larry Litton, Six Flags New England’s park president. “Hurricane Harbor is a huge draw in the New England region and with the addition of Mr. Six’s Splash Island we are solidifying our commitment to providing a wide array of fun, affordable family entertainment.”
Mr. Six’s Splash Island will join a host of thrilling attractions in Hurricane Harbor including the Typhoon water coaster, Tornado, over 25 unique water slides and two 500,000 gallon wave pools. Bigger, better and wetter than ever before, Hurricane Harbor is ready to keep New Englanders cool all summer long.

I wish they would spend the money for the water park and add on new ride or coaster instead. That water park is gross anyway.

Mr. Six's Splash Island has been known for a while but not what it is. They were doing work at the end of the season where the storage tents were and now they aren't there. I think there adding the little lazy river over there, along with the Johnny Rockets.

We had a great time at their waterpark on the 2008 East Coast Tour. Looking forward to the upgrade/new stuff!

^It truly is a fun waterpark. Just really crowded as theres not much to do in MA in the summer.

I have found out that this is an expansion so there will now be three wavepools and three lazy rivers. All of them are for different ages. Anyone think they will use some of the theming that had for Pandemonium when there was Mr. Six stuff on it?

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

So wait...is this a brand new attraction, or are they just renovating an already-existing children's section of the water park?

Brand new. Screamscapes sources were wrong I think. I reread the press release and it mentions the two 500,000 gallon wave pools. This will be the third one and its only 30,000 gallons. Where this is going, speculated to be right by the entrance of HH near the Tiki Bar, there is no lazy river there. We have an adult lazy river with tubes, and an action lazy river thats fast paced and really throws you around. So the lazy river must be new to.

It's nothing personal, it's just that whenever I go there, they make us get out every 5 min to check for bacteria. Plus some kid fudged in the pool too!

Tonight was the meeting to discuss 2010 park improvements for SFNE.

Heres what is going to happen for 2010.

The 1st project discussed was the addition of a new entrance and ticket booths in the premier and handicap lot. You will no longer have to drive to the back where the employee lot is and then drive all the way back to the front to get into the premier lot. When you pull in you will go to the left where they will have new ticket booths to get into the lot. The old entrance will be just for Employees and Deliveries.

The 2nd project was the NEW Johnny Rockets which will be a new building constructed across from the Coral Reef Cantina and will be a walk up style JRs like the one on Main st.

The 3rd Project was the Mr Six Splash Island which is going to be an addition to the existing kiddie area near hurricane bay and will expand into the premier lot.

the 4th and 5th projects were Meet&Greet areas complete with photobooth to purchase your pic. One is going into the southend near the antique cars and Mind Eraser and the other is located at the entrance to Crack Axle Canyon.

the 6th Project is the construction of a 78,000 sqft warehouse that will be used for food storage and Merchandise and will have 2,000 sqft of offices. It will have its own parking lot and 2 shipping bays.


The last project is tabled until it goes through the conservation committee.
