Just WAY, WAY too weak. You absolutely can't feel anything.

Easily better than Canobies Frisbee, but still not as good as ones at carnivals. The spinning was excellent on this one, especially during the second half and the sensations were good as well.

This is by far the best flat in the park. It is in ghost townville which is the part of the park that is made to look like a ghost town and actually is. No one is ever on this ride and it is easily the most underrated ride besides Cyclone.

In my top 20 rides! This is delightfully fun. I love how it doesnt just swing you can and forth, but it also spins you around. Reminds me more of a cowboy rope action, rather than a Tomahawk, but I dont think "THE LASSO" would sound as cool as "Tomahawk".

APPEARANCE: The ride fits in very well with Crackaxle Canyon and I really like the parks choice of colors for it. Also, the ride looks to be in great shape.

WAIT TIME: 5-15 minutes- Now this ride has a huge capacity at 40 passengers per cycle. However, loading takes a very long time on this ride because of slow operators. Still, lines arent bad for this even on busier days thanks to its location in a dead end in the park and its high capacity.

RIDE: Let me start off by saying that the whole ride is very smooth and just flat out fun. The first half had good spinning on par with Canobies Xtreme Frisbee and there were even one or two swings giving a little air, but the second half was what separated it from Canobies. The spinning was even faster, making the ride that much more intense and thrilling. Also, it actually had a decent cycle unlike many of the parks rides.

FINAL VERDICT: While not as good as many of the parks more intense flats, it still is a very fun flat and certainly worth a ride or two while there since its line is so short. Its not as good as Adrenalin or Freak Out, but its certainly better than the Xtreme Frisbee.

This is an early generation swinging, spinning pendulum ride. They are becoming so much huger and wilder these days, and while I do prefer the newer versions, this is still a respectable flat ride. Most of the reviews seem to mention the Tomahawk changing directions toward the end and getting even faster and more dizzying. I dont seem to remember that happening. I remember a more relaxing sensation throughout. Normally my favorite part of these rides is when you happen to be rounding the top as the pendulum starts to swoop down. As this doesnt arc out at an extreme angle, that feeling was somewhat absent here. As far as the flat rides go at SF New England, Id say this is on par with Nightwing and Double Trouble, but not as good as Buzz Saw, Twister, or Time Warp.

Normally, these pendulum type rides relax me almost to the point of napping. However, this version has some fast spinning that makes it more intense than other versions. Facing the other riders gives you the opportunity to watch their expressions while riding. This is another good feature of this ride.

This flat is definitely one of Six Flags New Englands hidden gems. It is in the corner of the park, and usually has short lines. The theming is also decent. Remember to ride this multiple times. I personally dont get sick on rides, but many others do. This is definitely the ride that one would get sick on. Try it once, and if you arent sick, keep riding it. Its like a Pirate with a spinning motion!

This ride spins ALOT faster than I thought it did. I thought it was more about the back and forth motion, but its like a Rotor on crack, only worse. Its a good thing I didnt eat anything before riding, cuz I wouldve been wearing it otherwise.
