Doubling the Fun AGAIN in 2006 With TWO New Rides!
CATAPULT and SPLASH WATER FALLS Will Debut In 2006 Only at Six Flags New England
AGAWAM - 2006 marks Six Flags' 45th Anniversary, and all year long Six Flags is inviting its guests to join in the celebration of this extraordinary milestone! In honor of its 45th Anniversary, Six Flags New England is doubling guests' fun AGAIN with the addition of two new rides. Catapult, high-flying thrills through the New England sky and Splash Water Falls, a family spinning water rapids ride will add a whole new level of family fun to the entertainment capital of New England - Six Flags New England.
"Anniversaries are celebrated best with family", stated Mark Kane, vice-president and general manager. "This season, we've raised the bar by adding two more rides the entire family can do together while supporting the experience with dynamic entertainment options including parades, character appearances, fireworks and more."
Thrill-seekers get ready to take flight on the high-flying thrills that Catapult has to offer. Dare to spin head-over-heels more than 100 feet in the air forwards and backwards in 360-degree rotations! No other ride in New England will give you the thrill of soaring face up to swat the sky and then diving face down to Earth.
"On the heels of our successful launch of Pandemonium and Typhoon in 2005, Catapult, with its high energy attributes, raises the bar yet again in thrill entertainment" said Kane. "Six Flags is always on the cutting edge of technology; this year is no different as we look forward to the launch of Catapult."
Piercing the New England skies in shades of yellow, burnt orange and steely blue, Catapult takes its place as a centerpiece in the north end of the park. Standing at 105 feet, the impressive Catapult, with its bright colors, allows friends and family to experience the sensation of thrill and flight together. A Mayan sun graphic beckons thrill seekers to reach out and touch the sun as guests whip and whirl 360 degrees forward and 360 degrees backwards!
Also making a splashy debut this season is Splash Water Falls. Hang on tight as Splash Water Falls whirls and twirls adventurous families over multiple spirals, drops, twists and turns while spinning continuously down a brightly colored river channel. Riders encounter splashy thrills while cruising past misters and geysers spraying cool water high into the air. Spectators also join in the fun, blasting unsuspecting riders with multiple water cannons located on the sidelines.
Bathed in primaries - red, yellow and blue - Splash Water Falls towers 60 feet above the park, and is the only ride of its kind in New England. Up to six riders fill each continuously spinning boat as it travels on a journey through a 540-degree loop, a 360-degree loop and a triple-dipped drop. With a minimum height requirement of 36 inches, the entire family can enjoy the thrill together.
"This is the ultimate way for families to cool off during the hot New England summers," stated Kane. "Splash Water Falls is a ride that the entire family can enjoy together. Sitting face-to-face in a brightly colored raft, family members can exchange hoots and hollers as they spin their cares away."
The addition of Catapult and Splash Water Falls raises the level of fun at Six Flags New England to immeasurable heights! Don't miss our best season ever as we double the fun AGAIN in 2006! So, make plans now to visit again and again. The new season begins April 15th! With the purchase of a season pass you and your family can enjoy the fun all season long for the low price of $64.99 per pass (minimum of 4 passes).
