 Review of Scrambler @ Six Flags New England
0 Rating Posted by: Mt. Flyer on 2/15/2005 6:16:00 PM
When my nephew was seven years old he loved this ride, now that hes nine he finds it boring. And why is this? SFNE seems to be taking too many cues from Lake Compounce and running their flats too slow. Scramblers can be great fun, but they need speed for that. With the way its run now its an overly large kiddie ride.

Whithit by the kiddie land Im not suprised. i also hate that they slow downthere rides. But dont be blaminglake compounce the only ride theyhave actually slowed own was the flying skooters. the roter is just old and sucked when Riverside owned it.

LC was also running their Enterprise slower than usual this season as well. I hope the park doesn´t continue this trend.

I find most flats at Lake Compounce to be too slow. Theyve been doing this for some time now, and SFNE followed with their non-inverting flats, which really bothers me because I prefer flats that are fast, but dont go upside down.

I prefer the ones that go upside down. For the most part I like the faster ones too, but the real spinny ones tend to disagree with me, if you know what I mean, but still I ride ém anyway for the track cred.

It just seems to me that for several years now, parks have developed the attitude that if a flat doesnt invert, then it should be run slow to be more of a "family" ride. I find this ironic since so many mothers and fathers (including mine) used to take their kids on rides like Scrambler and Music Express in the old (and FAST) Riverside days and never complained.

Its the hole yupy everythign is going to kill you attitude. and the insurance companies.

they can keep the hight the same but to have any sort of low insurence you have to slow it down. its all abotu money now and not fun.

Thats just awful, what good is anything when its not being used to its fullest?

Nothing. Just a waste of space and a magnet for bad reviews.

I agree a ride shoudl be used to its fullest cpabilitys. why add a thrill ride and tame it to a family ride. if you handle the loading and restraints coerctly you shoudl have no reason to slow anything down.
