ol reliable Vekoma! Hopefully they add more heaters this year to the other rides
And according to the upcoming town agenda meeting, it looks like Hurricane Harbor is also getting a new attraction. I'm hoping for a mat racer slide. It's one of the few main slide types they're missing and it's a high capacity ride.
I think the park was open today.....solid showing by only New England Six Flags park to start 2018 HITP where 2017 HITP left off....COLD AF.....looks to warm up next week after deluge overnight tomorrow.....hope to get up there tomorrow or Sunday.....
This was opening weekend for SFNE’s 2nd annual HiTP event. Like last year the park looks awesome. Same basic setup but even more lights and decorations have been added. Harley Quinn and the Teacups are new ride additions. Even though it wasn’t included in the ride list Flashback was also running. There was a pretty good crowd but it was funny to see longer lines on the kiddie rides compared to some coasters. SF is doing a good job with attracting families with younger kids to HiTP for sure.
The park is selling a ton of the hot chocolate / coffee souvenir mugs. As we walked around it seemed like more people had them compared to those that didn’t. I bought one and with the 50% DE discount it was only $5. It’s also a good travel mug so not a bad deal at all. Tree lighting ceremony was the same and people packed in to watch it. Nothing officially announced yet but Panda Express has been removed. Maybe we’ll be seeing a Chop Six like some of the other parks next year. Before leaving we checked out the Frost show. Although it has the same name multiple sections of the show have been updated this year. I enjoyed it last time and thought this year was even a bit better.
Overall we had a great time and will be heading back again to get a few more rides in before Jan. 1st. Hopefully the weather holds out so that HiTP will be a success for SFNE and they continue to grow the event.
Here’s a few pics.
Welcome to HiTP 2018!
Some real snow still hanging around from last week’s storm.
Light canopy as you walk down into the park.
I got mine.
The tree is lit!
The unofficial HiTP coaster Flashback in action.
Would love to see the coaster behind it added to HiTP in the future.
Goodbye Pandy Express!
Houdini looking good.
Not Harley Quinn.
New present light structure this year.
Our favorite flat in the park. Hi Harley!

Went up around 5:30 with the 8 yr old and stayed until 8:30.....real nice....temps were perfectly chilly....the warming stations were nice - especially the ones burning real wood.....because I was only with the 8 yr old we only got on the smaller stuff but thunderbolt really ran great in the front I thought.....our second ride in the back of car 2 was good but not as good as the front row....really hauled up there for whatever reason....Best I’ve had up there....
^ I regretted not going yesterday. The forecast originally called for rain, but there wasn't any precipitation during the park's operating hours. I'm always leery during HITP (or even the regular season now) going on a day with precipitation since the park seems to have a quicker trigger now about reducing their hours with little warning.
