 Review of Nightwing @ Six Flags New England

Nightwing was an amazing flat ride that definitely is a one-of-a-kind experience. Located in the DC Comics section of the park, Nightwing is a Huss Fly Away. Its the only Huss Fly Away in America. The best way to describe Nightwing is that its a slower version of the enterprise except you ride in the flying position. I had heard that Nightwings capacity was a nightmare. Well, Nightwing was a walk-on when I rode it and I rode on the outside. The restraints definitely were snug, and I cant complain about them because I personally havent been on another flying ride that has better restraints than this. I heard that the loading process was very long, so I was expecting to wait around 3-5 minutes before the ride started. Could I have been more wrong? Nightwing took 10 minutes to load, no exaggeration! That is way too long for a ride at a major amusement park like this or any amusement park for that matter. Only one person was checking the restraints, which might be the reason for the long loading times. They should have at least two or three people checking the restraints to speed up the process. At least Nightwing has a lot of vehicles so it can hold a good amount of people. Once the ride begins, the vehicles gain speed and fly around in a circle. Then the entire ride elevates and then it provides an amazing sensation. Once the vehicles travel over the top they dive back down to the ground, which was very fun. Also, Nightwing pulled some good Gs diving towards the ground. My favorite part of the ride was when the entire ride went vertical and you actually went upside down. While vertical the ride did quite a few inversions. Nightwing has a very good ride cycle and definitely is one of the better ones that the park has to offer. If it werent for the loading process I would have considered giving Nightwing a 10 (it felt like a 9.5), but the loading process bumps this one down to an 9. Also, I would have liked to see Nightwing go a little faster, but the ride itself was very fun so that isnt too big of a complaint. Anyone who enjoys flying rides or enterprises probably will enjoy Nightwing. Overall, Nightwing was an exceptional flat ride that is hampered severely by a tedious and poor loading process.
