Six Flags New England, Agawam

3.1
#1 of 10 in Theme Parks in Massachusetts
The oldest of the Six Flags properties, Six Flags New England combines a theme park and water park. This spot got its start as a park in the 19th century and began introducing amusements in the early 20th century. However, its modern reputation is for its thrilling roller coasters, many of which are named after popular characters or films, such as Batman: The Ride. Costumed characters roam the avenues between the rides. Arrange to visit Six Flags New England and other attractions in Agawam using our Agawam road trip site .

  • Great park with lots of thrill rides. This placed is packed most of the time. Long walk from parking lot and tram takes forever. Other than that, its a good place to go. Lots of rides and a great water park. The staff is really friendly. Season passes with dining is the wag to go if you go more than 3 times a year.
  • Popular park.lots of rides per acre. Plenty of places to eat and drink. Decent restroom availability. Food quality is ok. Not expensive to get in but Everything adds up so a trip can be expensive if you don't track everything. Park is relatively clean. Staff is a mixed bag of friendly and indifferent. App support is good.
  • There is nothing better than being forced to leave the park cold, wet and hungry, especially after you spend hundreds on premium food passes (a total of 6 passes). On top of being season pass holders we also hold premium food passes; and were made to learn the hard way that all parks do not hold the same policy when it comes to dinner hours. When we purchased the passes online it was advertised that we had until 30 prior to park closing to eat dinner and not the 8:00pm time we were told when we attempted to eat at 8:15. The park closed at 10pm so we were under the impression that we had until 9:30 to eat dinner. So when we were told that there was nothing that could be done to accommodate us and that any food that wasn't sold last night would be charged as waste we were very upset and disappointed. When I asked the manager (Carl Fancy IV Supervisor since 2011) why he could not count our meals as waste as a way to override the "system" I was told it does not work this way. We were not asking for handouts the food package was something that we paid for so we didn't have to worry about having extra money while in the park, or having to find something to eat after leaving the park. So after standing in the rain at guest services for 30 mins for a manager to come and being told sorry not sorry and then having to find a place to eat (Luckily this time we traveled with money) and then make the hour and a half drive back home talking to the manger felt like a slap in the face. He showed no concern about us not being from the area, not having anything to eat for dinner, or even the fact that this was a paid service. You advertise the service as one that could alleviate any stress of going to the park when it comes to eating and that is what we did. We went into the park the kids ran to their favorite rides, slowed down enough to stop for a snack and starve for dinner. This situation makes question my loyalty to a company that is not loyal to its customers. I do not think I will be returning as a pass holder next year after this experience. It's sad because my friends and family really enjoyed taking advantage of our passes and spending time in the parks.
  • Today I went to six flags and had a blast! The staff was very friendly, and the rides were entertaining. They all were in working order and I felt safe on every ride. The food wasn't very good (Pretzels were stale) and it was overpriced, but that is expected at a large park like Six Flags. The lines even seemed very short, with essentially no wait for Superman, as I was able to go on it 3 times almost immediately. The lines that were long, were very well managed. Overall, this was a great first experience and I hope to return as soon as I can.
  • A good amount of rides, but don't expect to be able to ride the thrill rides if you're on the chubbier side. The focus clearly is on the rides. At no point in the park so you get the feeling that you truly step into the world of DC comics or Bugs Bunny. It's the same undecorated paths and under-decorated surroundings you follow to the same kind of restaurants asking for the same purchase of ever more types of special passes over and over and over again. If you go there for the rides only, imagine it 4 stars. If you fancy an adventure into a different world a la Disney, imagine this 2 stars.
