 Review of Carousel @ Six Flags New England
0 Rating Posted by: Canobie Coaster on 7/27/2005 3:59:00 PM
Home of one of my favorite carousels as a childhood when the park was run by Riverside, Six Flags New England has tarnished what used to be one of the best carousels around. Located near the front of the park, their classic Illinois Carousel is located right near the main entrance. This classic wooden carousel is a beauty. All of the wooden horses have amazing detail. At night it looks even better with the bright lights illuminating the wonderous carousel. Generally a walk-on, the Carousel has a very high capacity. Unfortunately, you are restrained by straps on this one. Now I mentioned that the ride looks nice. That is while you are off the ride. While on the ride you can see what condition the ride is now in. Six Flags doenst maintain it properly. Most of the horses are in excellent condition, but some arent and even have some pieces chipping off. Also, the ride no longer has a band organ. In the center of the ride there is a void where it used to be. Now there is just a cheesy recording of a band organ. Also, the ride length is insanely short. It is about a minute and a half long. Though the ride doesnt begin with a bell, the ride ends with one. Overall, Six Flags New Englands Carousel is beautiful, but it has a short cycle and isnt properly maintained. Still anyone who enjoys carousels, especially classic ones, cant miss this one.
