Agawam, MA. — April 4, 2018 — Six Flags New England, the Thrill Capital of New England, is opening its gates for the 2018 season and will be open daily for both Connecticut’s and Massachusetts’ Spring Breaks—Saturday, April 7 through Sunday, April 22. On opening day, the park will launch its newly themed GOTHAM CITY™ area, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment. Guests will be fully immersed in the dark and twisted world of GOTHAM CITY featuring incredible rides and attractions themed after the world’s most iconic Super Heroes and Super Villains, including the latest addition—HARLEY QUINN Spinsanity, opening later this spring.
“Six Flags New England is the region’s top destination for thrills and we are excited to create unique experiences like the newly branded GOTHAM CITY section,” said Six Flags New England Park President, Pete Carmichael. “We also look forward to debuting the all-new HARLEY QUINN Spinsanity. This high-adrenaline attraction will amaze thrill-seekers and continues our commitment to offer new thrills to our guests every single year.”
Among the highlights of the new GOTHAM CITY area:
Thrill-seekers will enjoy epic attractions like BATMAN THE DARK KNIGHT™, THE JOKER™ 4D Free Fly Coaster, and the newly themed coaster THE RIDDLER™ Revenge—formerly Mind Eraser; and
- Later this summer, guests will have the opportunity to meet and greet the iconic mastermind THE RIDDLER, exclusively at Six Flags New England
In late spring, making its world premiere will be HARLEY QUINN™ Spinsanity. Inspired by THE JOKER’s partner-in-crime, HARLEY QUINN Spinsanity is an extreme pendulum ride that swings guests back and forth at 147 feet, traveling up to 70 miles per hour. This new attraction will rank as one of the park’s fastest thrill rides and will leave riders feeling as wild and out of control as HARLEY QUINN herself.
