 Review of Jokers Wildcard @ Six Flags New England
0 Rating Posted by: Mt. Flyer on 2/16/2005 10:43:00 AM
A few years ago this wipeout was being run at extremely fast speeds. The indoor theme didnt really work for this ride, but the high speed did. Matter of fact, just when you thought you couldnt take it, theyd go even faster for the last few seconds of the ride. If the Jokers Wildcard was still operated that way I would have no problem giving it an "8" or "9", I found it that much fun. Unfortuately once again we have here a ride thats been castrated by running it too slow. Cmon Six Flags, stop running your flats like Lake Compounce!

Execept for the first couple of seasons theyhave been runing the ride slow. the worst thing is the isistance that nowone can ride alown and that they will spend a half hour movign peopel around.

again Lake comounce outside of the Skooters runs there rides well. look at the enterprise and musik express. bth run fast. I dont think I have to reeat the info on the roter.

Its been two years since Ive been on this thing, I had no idea theyd instituted a "no single rider" policy. Thats ridiculous. But sorry no, I dont agree at all about Lake Compounce. I love that place and all but except for Enterprise, everything there runs too slow. The Music Express is thankfully not run too slowly, but its still the slowest speed Ive ever seen for a ride of this type.

Now even the Enterprise is run too slow.

You shoudl try the one at TGE. I agre eif they are slowing down th rides ther is a bit of a cancern. but also keep in mind a slightly slower ride is safer and less problems acure. I ask about the slowng of rides when Im at the park on the 5th.

I dunno about safer, but they suck more. I think running the Enterprise slower is more dangerous if anything, cuz the gondolas rock more and you get thrown around in ways you wouldn´t if it was run at the proper speed.

I read somewhere that this is shut down for safety reasons. Anybody know why?

The story is its shut down because its indoors and the state wants more safety features such as fire exits.

The fire Exits have littel to do with it. the largist reason is that the ride on a power outage dosnt atomaticly go back to startign position. they shut it down proimarily for this. placment of exit doors, Emerganc exits on queue line, lighting, are some of the other complaints.
