A few days ago, Screamscape reported that Six Flags New England park reps will be attending a board meeting on July 19th, 2012. At the meeting, they will be showing site plans for 2013 projects. One of the projects was listed as "Main Street - Star Flier".
Does this confirm SFNE will receive a Star Flier (SkyScreamer) attraction in 2013? Well, yes and no. It seems Six Flags New England is defiantly thinking about adding a SkyScreamer, but this does not 100% guarantee this. Remember, Six Flags New England is just proposing this idea to the town board. The project could get rejected by the town, plans might fall through, or SFNE might decide not to add it into the park.
But, let's say Six Flags New England will receive a Star Flier attraction in 2013. Where will it go? Based on the file, SFNE will place it in the Main Street section of the park. But, where will it exactly be located in Main Street?

One possible location for SFNE's SkyScreamer, could be in the former Thomas Town section of the park. (This is the section in Red in the photo above.) The Tomas Town section was located to the right of the parks main entrance. This would be a good location for it, because there is plenty of room for the attraction. This is also the only big space in the Main Street section of the park. However, I think this location is too close to the parks entrance. Personally, I do not like it when there is a huge attraction/ride is located right when guests opener the park.
Another bad thing about this location is my proposed Water Park expansion can not occur. My idea was the park could use that section of the park for a new convenient location for the water park, and add in more water rides. I would rather have this occupy the old Thomas Town, instead of SkyScreamer.
SFNE could also add in a SkyScreamer into an area near the Thunderbolt Wooden Coaster and the Scream Drop Tower. (Thunderbolt and Scream are currently the only attractions in Main Street.) They can easily remove a few buildings, and place SkyScreamer some where there. (Remember, SkyScreamer does not take up a lot of space!)
If the park really wants to add in a Star Flier, they can also add it to any other section of the park. Now, the park is proposing to the town board that they want it in the Main Street section of the park. Plans could change, and the new attraction could be placed any where else in the park.
