9/12/13: Six Flags Go Big, Go Six Flags

We went to Six Flags New England this past weekend.  The kids love it and so did we.  I have been going there since I was small and it was called Riverside Park so I love to see the evolution this park has gone through.
Buy 2014 Season Passes now and get free visits for the rest of 2013 including Fright Fest.  If you buy 4 or more you get a Free upgrade to GOLD which includes Free parking.  Must purchase by November 3rd, 2013.
There is so much for kids there.  There are kids shows, characters to meet and kids areas.
 Lauren was giggling on this ride.
Love Daffy Duck!
 A view in the Looney Tunes kids area.
  I like this cute ride in the kids section called Looney Toons Movie Town.  Tweety would hit Sylvester with a hammer and the ride would go up and down.
 The kids did this cool roller coaster with us.  I love it as it is more of a family roller coaster with gradual drops.  My kids loved it.
This is a great area to wear a cape and pretend you are a super hero.  I was actually amazed that the capes are only $5.  You can either buy one or play a game and automatically win one.
There was a dance party with the characters.
 With Meet and Greets after.
 Here is another kids area with a train.  This area is right as you enter the park to the right.  I believe this is new this year as we didn't see it last year.  They are always updating.  They used to have a Thomas area.
Evan loves the cars.  For some reason this one seems to break down a lot.  Last year it broke down when we were in line, and this year it broke down twice when we were in line.  Luckily the third time was a charm and we made it on.
 Enjoying another car ride.
Lauren loved these swings.
There is even a dance off show.
Peppy Le Pew!
Plus we even got to see Scooby Doo and Shaggy.  I love how Scooby held up Lauren's cape.
    They have wonderful roller coasters there for all the thrill seekers out there.

There were smiles all around.
 This year we didn't go early enough for the water area but they do have a ton of stuff there.
 Here are some more of the slides.  This area is much larger than I expected it to be.  There is a wave pool, regular pools, slides and lots of fun stuff to take a break and cool off during the day.
Be aware that it does cost $20 to park and the parking involves either a lengthy walk to the park or a tram/bus ride.  We walked to the park but opted to take the bus back to our car at the end of the day.
Go Big, Go Six Flags!
