This will be the last time I ride a non-floorless top spin-at least I hope it is. I have ridden the one at Dorney, and now this one, and they are absolute torture devices to me. The concept isn't bad-inversions, swoops, and "teasing" visuals are all good, but I simply can't enjoy them with such confining restraints. I am six foot three, and legally allowed to ride, but the ride was simply not enjoyable at all, and was all pain. At least this cycle was short. I also found it weird that the "flips" were at the beginning rather than the end of the ride. I know it is probably not fair for the ride's rating for me to rate it this low, but I feel I am representing the tall people of America with my first ever "1."

Ouch! I like the fast flipping, but the long periods that it held me upside-down absolutely killed thanks to the ultra-tight and painful restraints. Also the ride had very little action to it.

This was a decent top spin but the squeaking was absolutely brutal.

The Twister at Six Flags New England was my first and definitely not my last top spin. Located in the Rockville U.S.A. section of the park, Twister is a Huss top spin. Everytime I have been on and seen Twister, it has been a walk-on. With two rows each seating 20 passengers, Twister is a capacity machine. The operators are very strict and they enforce a no running or jumping off the platform rule. Out of the two rows, I would say that the front is better because of the view. Restrained by a very tight over-the-shoulder restraint, Twister often gets negative comments about the restraints being uncomfortable. I found that Twisters restraints were a tad bit tight on my thighs, but its not overly bad. The ride attendants were very fast and efficient loading the vehicle as they didnt mess around. Twister is a ride of two faces. There are two programs; a dull one and an intense one. I will review both individually since each gives a different ride.

For my first ride on Twister, I got the dull program. Once the ride began the vehicle lifted and did 2 flips that were very intense and had some good hang-time. Unfortunately, that was basically the ride. After that it just went around one more time (with no flips) and then it gave one final tease just as the ride ended. This cycle provides two intense and thrilling flips, but the ride needs more. 6 out of 10

And then theres program eight, the intense one. It was a Saturday and I hadnt been expecting the intense program. I was caught off-guard once the ride began. This time Twister began by holding everyone upside down for quite a few seconds, providing some amazing hang-time. Then came the two or three amazing flips as I had gotten on my first ride on Twister. Following that was a quick tease and then just before the ride ended, it hung us upside-down again for quite a bit giving more incredible hang-time. The cycle still unfortunately was rather short, but unlike the other program, the entire ride was very eventful and there was no dull moment. 10 out of 10

Twister is my first top-spin and I hope others are just as good. Hopefully Six Flags will use the thrilling and amazing program 8 more often than the dull one. Ill average the rating out for now until Six Flags runs program 8 more often. Any top-spin lover shouldnt dare miss Twister.

This Twister top spin was running the exact same cycle that the Twister top spin at Darien Lake was running just a few days before. Lots of backwards flipping and hanging, as well as some forward teases and rocking. Ive ridden several top spins now, and this one was a very representative example. Not the absolute best of the bunch, but still very good. Definitely one of my favorite types of flat ride.

This ride didnt spin much compared to other versions that Ive ridden. The cycle was the shortest that Ive ever experienced on this type of ride.

This is not one of my favorite top spins, but its not bad. In addition to the four quick flips, theyve now added a little slow inverted action at the end of the ride, AND, theyve cleaned all the gum off it.

This ride is pretty fun, but the restraints make it hard to enjoy. Does quite a few flips and provies some good Gs. Good ride, but it HURTS.

Its alright, nothin special. The thing did smell, and the restraints hurt when they face you towards the ground, and they should have done more flips and such. But overall a pretty fun ride. Major flaw, comfort of the restraints....BEWARE!!!
