Retro 1983 Riverside Park by pianojohn

The park's main attractions are Wicked Cyclone (and unique RMC creation), Superman: The Ride, Joker and Batman: The Dark Knight. Other attractions that can't be missed are Houdini: The Great Escape (Vekoma Mad House), Harley Quinn Spinsanity, New England SkyScreamer and Pandamonium (a spinning coaster with a small footprint and low capacity.)

On those hot summer days, the park has a full-size water park included in the park admission. For the young ones, the park has two dedicated areas: Looney Tunes Movie Town and KIDZOPOLIS. The highlight of these areas is The Great Chase roller coaster.

It is best to get to the park when it opens and head straight to Bizarro; that will allow you to get a ride or two in before the lines build to over an hour long.
The park has several options for food from BBQ (JBs Smokehouse), to seafood (Bay Street Fishery) to hamburgers (Johnny Rockets Express). Panda Express has a very limited menu at SFNE. For the sweet tooth, the park is home to Peaches and Cream and Sweet Shoppe.

For more information on dining options please see the park's website:
