Yawn. This is just so boring. It travels very slowly and theres just no thrill to it. Its not that long either. It did have no line though.

The Balloon Race was a disappointing flat ride at Six Flags New England. Located in the North End next to Flashback, the Balloon Race is a Zamperla model. Surrounded by a few trees, the Balloon Race has a variety of multi-colored balloons that each sit four people. Most Balloon Races capacities are average, but this one is fairly decent because of its low ridership compared to other attractions. When I rode the Balloon Race it was a walk-on. The operator checked the vehicles very quickly and soon began our ride. I rode facing backwards. Usually I find balloon races to be a fun ride, but not this one. This one was much slower than the other ones I have been on, going at 8 RPMs. This Balloon Race did seem to get a bit higher than most, but the speed just ruined the ride. Also the cycle wasnt very long. Overall, the Balloon Race is a family attraction that is slower than most balloon races out there.

A "family" flat ride with nothing very special about it. Although the ride rotates, the balloons do not spin. So it is a good choice for people who do not like spinning flat.

This ride is boring even as far as family rides go. You spin around a little. You go up in the air. You come back down. Whoopdeedoo. Of course I was in a foul mood cuz Catapult was "temporarily closed" on my visit, so that didnt help any.

Since SFNE has a basic lack of family rides this is a pleasant addition to the park. The ride looks great tucked in under Boomerang inversions of the Boomerang coaster. The ride time is good and there normally isnt a line. A great after meal ride and good for the whole family. If your a general fan of rides you will like this ride. If all you want is a thrill well give it a try anyways.
