Bizarro at Six Flags New England
Bizarro is an Intamin hyper coaster. It used to be named Superman: Ride of Steel, but in the winter of 2008 the ride was renovated and became Bizarro. It has won 5 Golden Ticket Awards since 2002. I was very exited to see if it would live up to its expectations.
The ride starts with a lift up the first 225 foot hill. The trains have speakers that play music throughout the ride. The first drop gives good airtime and leads to an underground, mist-filled tunnel. Another airtime hill follows this. The next element is an overbanked turn, similar to those on Millennium Force.
There are two more airtime hills after this, each delivering great airtime. Next the ride starts a twister section. There is a large, downward helix to the right, another hill, and a helix to the left. There is one more tunnel before a long section of bunny hops. These hills contain the best airtime on the ride. A small right turn leads to the brake run.
Bizarro was a great ride, but how does it stack up to Millennium Force? Honestly, Millennium Force is better. I know there are many coaster fans who love Bizarro and dislike Millennium but, in my opinion, they are not correct.
Millennium Force takes you on a journey throughout Cedar Point, Bizarro just stays in one area of the park. Bizarro’s restraints were sometimes painful during the airtime moments.
Maybe my expectations were a bit too high. It was still a great ride though. I am giving it a 9 out of 10.
