Agawam, Massachusetts: Guests to Six Flags New England can now ride the latest in family thrills on a Gerstlauer Spinning Coaster. Dubbed Mr. Six’s Pandemonium, the new 50-foot tall roller coaster is nestled amongst the park’s midways and other fun attractions. Six Flags New England came to Gerstlauer with the need for a coaster that attracted both the family and teen demographics. The company responded with their popular Spinning Coaster system, which opened at two parks for the 2004 season.
“We believe that Six Flags chose Gerstlauer because our ride is more than a simple spinning mouse,” said Franz Maier, a company representative. “This coaster has a little bit of everything- a fun first drop, hairpin turns, back-to-back helices, bunny hops and an exciting ending. It really is a fun coaster for everyone in the family”
The ride’s opening was full of celebrities, including Six Flags New England General Manager Mark Kane, New England Patriot players Mike Vrable and Roman Phifer, and Mr. Six himself. Television and radio stations from around the country saw the ride opened on April 14 and two days later the roller coaster officially joined the park’s coaster family as it opened for Six Flags New England’s first day of operation.
Mark Kane said, “This new roller coaster is a great addition to the park and we’re delighted to bring Mr. Six’s Pandemonium, along with Mr. Six and his incredible energy and excitement, to our guests. No other coaster in New England can offer this much fun and variety!”
Maier said that, “Gerstlauer appreciates the chance to be part of such a creative marketing campaign and looks forward to Mr. Six’s Pandemonium spinning thousands of riders throughout the 2005 season.”
