great ride, just don't go by yourself or it's a little hard to spin, being very weak. Still got some good spins though! 8 of 10 (needs themeing)

Its pretty good for what it is. I love being able to control the spinning and the ride was quite long as well, but just SFNE has better flats.

What makes a good tea cups ride? Does it have to be comfortable? Oh yes. Does it have plenty of spinning? Of course. Now typically when I think of Six Flags New England, their high-tech thrillers such as Bizarro, Batman, or Scream attract most of my attention and I unfortunately seem to forget about the best tea cups I’ve ever been on by a long shot.

Located in the South End, the Tea Cups admittedly don’t look like anything particularly special off-ride with its stereotypical appearance for a tea cup-style attraction. Thankfully though, this never ever has a line at all thanks to its rather low popularity and its exceptionally high capacity. I have never had to wait a minute for this before in my life, and I doubt I ever would in the future as well.

Once seated in the large and very roomy tea cups and the ride began, it was easily apparent that this would be a dizzying experience. Not only does SFNE run this at a rather high speed to induce some great spinning on its own, but I was able to control the cup’s spinning even more with a center wheel, which works wonders to say the least. Never before has it been easier to increase the spinning on a tea cup attraction or any other attraction for that matter in my life. Add that exceptional spinning in with a pretty good length cycle, and you’ve got a really special attraction.

The Tea Cups don’t have the height or intensity of SFNE’s larger, more glorified attractions, but fills the spinning-ride niche to perfection. Never have I ever ridden such a great tea cups before and this one is my runaway favorite thanks to its very intense spinning. Rarely do I ever come off a ride dizzy, but this one succeeded and was absolutely fulfilling. Any spinning ride fan should reserve time for a ride or two on this exceptional spinning flat because you certainly won’t be disappointed in the least bit.

Great family ride, and a great "spin and puke" all at the same time. Unlike so many other flats at SFNE, the Tea Cups run at a good clip. But the key to this ride is the cups themselves. They are very easy to turn, so that if you desire this to be less "family" ride, and more "thrill" ride, the control is at your finger tips. Little bit of a wait for this ride sometimes, but never too long.

What an adventure.

Seriously though, this is very lame and tame. I might have had more fun sitting on a park bench, eating a corndog. The best thing about this ride is the typical lack of a line. The worst thing about this ride is everything else.

Need I say more? Adorable, especially for people who adore tea. (I nearly cried with tears of happiness when I saw this, because I had only seen the one for children, and people under 58".) It is a bit slow, but still fun.

A standard Tea Cup ride in a decent building. A ride you can take your kids on.
