I’ve been nervous to even write about the new Bizarro at Six Flags New England. Obviously, the revamped Intamin hyper coaster isn’t really new. It’s another in a line of renovated roller coasters in Six Flags’ new era of roller coaster makeovers. Why would I be nervous?
Superman Ride of Steel is my #1 ranked roller coaster and I consider it the best roller coaster I’ve ever ridden. Its airtime has been unmatched by all of the coasters that I’ve ridden since I rode it in 2005, although El Toro came close. And it’s interesting layout with great highs and lows, two tunnels, and helices is a masterpiece. So, when I heard that Six Flags was going to enhance and improve it, I was very skeptical that a coaster rated as the Best Steel Roller Coaster (by Mitch’s Internet Poll & the Golden Ticket Awards), would come out better than ever. Read my full Superman: Ride of Steel review to see why I gave it a 10 out of 10.
The Bizarro Transformation
Let’s take a look at the upgrades that the ride underwent during its transformation from world’s greatest super hero to little known villain. Like, the Medusa to Bizarro transformation at sister park Six Flags Great Adventure, this Bizarro ride received a fire, misters as riders pass through the shields, and on-board speakers. I’ll try to add some more information about the ride from some reviews I can find, but for now I’d like to hear from you!
What’s the Verdict?
While I haven’t been to Massachusetts to ride it yet, I’d love for readers to leave their take and mini-reviews. Is Bizarro better than Superman: Ride of Steel, pretty much the same, or dare I ask,…. worse? Leave a comment below and keep my feelings in mind. Just kidding.
