Six Flags New England Drop Tower

Six Flags New England is the most elaborate amusement park in the northeast, and holds some of the best roller coasters in the country, holding 12 amazing roller coasters for all kinds of visitors.

Today we are ranking all of the roller coasters at Six Flags New England from worst to best.

12. The Great Chase

The Great Chase Roller Coaster Six Flags New England

Of the two kiddie coasters at Six Flags New England, this is the worst one. It is relatively forceless and has grown increasingly rough over the years. It really could use some work, and it being somewhat better themed does not help the experience at all.

11. Catwoman's Whip

This is the better of the two kiddie roller coasters at the park. It has some more intense hills and turns that make it a better experience overall while still being approachable for small children.

The roller coaster also features more comfortable trains that makes the ride a more enjoyable experience beyond the layout itself. It also has a position that gives it great views of the surrounding roller coasters, including Superman The Ride, the park's signature roller coaster. If you are looking for a kiddie coaster at Six Flags New England this is the better choice.

10. Goliath

Goliath Roller Coaster at Six Flags New England

This ride should be a great experience. It has a good layout and tall drops, but this ride has its problems that put it lower on the list than it should be.

First, it features uncomfortable trains. This robs any of the forces of their intensity and makes the ride a lot more tame and painful than it should be.

Another reason this ride is ranked so low, is that it is never open. Technical problems consistently close this ride, and it is increasingly rare to actually see it open in the park. This alone puts it this low as it is near impossible to actually experience.

9. Gotham City Gauntlet

Gotham City Gauntlet Roller Coaster Six Flags New England

Gotham City Gauntlet is a roller coaster found at various amusement parks around the country. It features some fun theming that puts it above many other similar versions. The forces on this ride aren't the strongest but it's a solid mid-tier coaster.

The ride also features some mist elements that can be refreshing on a hot day at the park as you pass through them.

8. Flashback

This is a normal boomerang roller coaster found at dozens of other amusement parks. It is placed above Goliath as it is far more reliable than that ride, and provides a more standard roller coaster experience.

7. Thunderbolt

Thunderbolt is the park's only traditional wooden roller coaster and it is also the oldest still operating roller coaster at Six Flags New England, as well as in the entire Six Flags chain as of the publishing of this article.

This is a classic coaster that is tamer than many of the other coasters in the park, but it still provides a solid wooden coaster experience with its classic style layout.

6. Pandemonium

Pandemonium Roller Coaster Six Flags New England

The parks spinning coaster is a really fun ride, and depending on the weight distribution in your train it can be an incredibly intense experience. With a compact layout that manages to fit in plenty of drops and turns designed to maximize your speed while spinning, this ride does everything that a spinning coaster should do.

5. The Joker

The Joker Sign Roller Coaster at Six Flags New England

This ride is a cloned S&S 4th dimension coaster that spins freely as it goes through much of the layout, and it is the newest roller coaster at Six Flags New England.

This roller coaster can be a great experience, but because of the free-spinning nature of the ride, every time you go on the ride you can experience something different. This adds to the cham and rerideability of the attraction by making it something that can feel different each time.

It is a fun ride, and if you haven't experienced one of the same attractions at another park then you should check it out on your visit to Six Flags New England.

4. The Riddler Revenge

The fact that a suspended looping coaster is this high on the list should be a tribute to how much this ride has improved over the years. When it was known as Mind Eraser this ride was just as painful as every other SLC. But the refurbishment that transformed it into The Riddler Revenge made it into an actual quality attraction.

The new trains the ride received was an amazing investment that turned this ride into a much better attraction, removing a lot of the shakiness and painful headbanging that gave this ride the original name, Mind Eraser. Its by no means the best ride in the park, but it is far improved from what it once was.

3. Batman: The Dark Knight

Batman The Dark Knight Floorless Roller Coaster Six Flags New England

The ride's floorless roller coaster is also one of its best attractions, and the only B&M coaster currently operating in the park. It is extremely smooth and perfectly placed with great views of the river that borders the park.

With five inversions, it has the most inversions of a traditional full circuit roller coaster at the park. With great pacing and tons of great forces, this ride is a wonderful mid-tier coaster that helps round out the top of the Six Flags New England lineup.

2. Wicked Cyclone

Wicked Cyclone Drop RMC Roller Coaster Six Flags New England

Wicked Cyclone is the park's RMC hybrid roller coaster, and it is one of the two best coasters in the park. With an over one hundred-foot-tall drop, and three inversions, this ride packs an incredibly thrilling punch that starts with incredible intensity in its speed as it passes through various elements on the layout.

The ride also packs in a tremendous amount of airtime, with every hill and turn designed to maximize the amount of airtime you feel on the coaster, made more intense with the wonderfully light lap bar restraints. It is also long for an RMC, making the experience last longer and giving the chance to experience more elements on a single ride.

The only thing that keeps this ride from the top spot is it does get a little slow on the final run through its layout. This hurts the pacing a bit, but still makes for an amazing attraction that could easily be the best ride at another park, if it weren't for the top ride at Six Flags New England.

1. Superman The Ride

Superman The Ride Roller Coaster Finale Six Flags New England

No matter what this has been called over the years, Superman Ride of Steel, Bizzaro, or the current name Superman The Ride, this has always been the best ride in the park. Featuring a 221-foot drop, and reaching speeds over 75 miles per hour, this Intamin Mega Coaster provides an amazing ride experience.

The first drop is by far the most intense part of the attraction, diving underneath the ground into a mist tunnel before climbing another hill. The ride then turns before going over another hill and entering an above-ground scenic mist tunnel filled with Superman logos.

The latter half of the ride is then filled with a series of helixes as well as smaller hills and a dip into another below-ground mist tunnel.

The ride is filled with intense moments of airtime and strong forces that make it an experience unlike anything else not only in the park, but in the entire surrounding region. This is all highlighted by an ever-changing roster of themed effects and onboard audio that makes for a better overall experience.
