PART TWENTY-THREE: SIX FLAGS NEW ENGLAND
Well here it is finally, the last installment of my trip report! Sadly, my final day was one of the real disappointments of the whole trip.
I had been really excited about having Six Flags New England on my itinerary for one reason, that reason obviously being Superman: Ride of Steel, the apparent number one steel coaster in the world. So after a 4am wake up call and a bus journey of about five hours I get to Six Flags New England all pumped up to finish the trip with the best steel coaster around. My excitement was wiped away completely as soon as I reached the entrance when I saw the sign they had displayed at the front. "Sorry for the inconvenience. Superman will be closed today". Argh!!! Now I know how Clark Griswald felt when he got to the Walley World entrance on that fateful day. What a real sickener, I was so gutted. I mean there were loads of other East Coast parks I could have went to instead had I known the ride would be closed. Because really, when you take S:ROS out of the equation Six Flags New England really wasn't a place worth visiting. There really wasn't much there that I hadn't already rode at Geauga Lake or the other Six Flags parks. But enough of my whining, I understand that ride breakdowns happen and there's nothing that can be done, besides my previous day of walk ons at great Adventure makes up for any disappointment suffered today. I just hope that whenever I get back out to SFNE the damn ride is open!
As for the rest of the parks, I pretty much just rode all the coasters once. With Superman closed I didn't bother investing in a flashpass so I had to wait in a few long lines, but that just helped pad out my day as I waited for my bus back to NYC. I'm not gonna go into detail on the coasters becuase there really wasn't anything unique amongst what I rode. The floorless was alright, but again I'm not big on those rides. The SLC was horrible as usual and the woodies weren't up to much.
With S:ROS closed and the other coasters conquered I managed to take an earlier bus back to New York and get to bed at a much more reasonable hour than originally planned.
The next morning I spent a few more hours wandering about NYC before heading to JFK for my flight to London, which I'm thankful to say was completely incident free. A bus to Manchester and a train to Glasgow later and I was home. 137 credits better off, but way more important than that I had the experience of a lifetime. The people I met and the places I saw really made this the best trip I've ever taken in my life. I seriously urge anyone who's considering a TPR trip in the future to do it!
28 days, 140 coasters and almost 14,000 miles travelled and I'd do it all again in a heartbeat!
Bring on the next trip!
