Agawam, Massachusetts, United States of America
Six Flags New England keeps the standard of theme park fun high in this elegant part of the United States.
Without a doubt, this park’s claim to fame is Bizarro (formerly known as Superman), which has been voted the number one steel roller coaster ride many times by various theme park magazines. Fog, pyrotechnics and stunning audio combine with the ride itself to create a truly unforgettable experience. The ride tops out at 124 kmph (77 mph) and winds its way through two dark tunnels. Its twisted track visually resembles a bowl of spaghetti, which makes for a truly heart-pounding adventure.
Although rides like Bizarro certainly are not for the faint hearted, there are other, tamer options as well, not to mention some great live shows.
Musically speaking, one of the park’s most exciting performances is called Vocal Acceleration. Actually an a cappella group, this ensemble is nothing short of amazing. In addition to outstanding harmonies, their vocal percussion skills have to be heard to be believed.
