On October 13th, 2012, we made our last trip to an Amusement Park for 2012. It was our last trip, but it was a great trip. (Sorry we are posting this over 3 months late! We have been very busy!)
Our last trip for the season was to Six Flags New England, for the ACE Event 'Superhero Celebration' which is a yearly event held by the park. The event consists each year of a buffet style lunch (with free unlimited food, deserts, drinks, etc), including a Q&A with park personnel, and nighttime ERT.
Our day began waking up early, and arriving at the park at about noon time, as that was the time of open during the fall months. As every year, we headed straight to the Picnic Grove to eat lunch and have the Q&A. The lunch provided was fantastic as always, with an awesome make-your-own ice cream sundae section! Too bad it was too cold for ice cream though!
After lunch, we went back to the park to realize that it was super crowded. The lines for everything were insanely long, with minimum ride lengths of one hour. We were forced to buy a Flash Pass, which was extremely expensive. However, it was worth it, as we got to ride a lot of Coasters that day. Without it, we would have only ridden a few Coasters, with waiting for hours. We got to ride each major Coaster and ride once or twice.
As the park began to get dark, we took advantage of their Fright Fest, and went through the 'Wicked Woods' haunted walk through. It was fun and entertaining, but not as fun as other haunted attractions at other parks.
We then rode a few more Coasters, and then the park was already closing. We returned our expensive Flash Pass, and then enjoyed ERT, which was very short this year. It was only about a half hour ERT on Bizarro, GCG:EAA, and Thunderbolt. We stayed only on Bizarro for the short time, but got about 6 rides in.
Overall Superhero Celebration 2012 was a great event. It proves to be a yearly expected event, and over each year becomes memorable. What makes it a great event is that it is a smaller than others. Also, it is the Fall time, Fright Fest, and one of our last Amusement Park Trips for each season. We can not wait for Superhero Celebrations 2013!
