Slide The Bonzai Pipelines at Six Flags New England

Just in time for the hot Summer weather, Six Flags New England has opened their new slide tower, the Bonzai Pipelines.

The tower contains six separate slides, all of which start with a drop capsule that launches riders down into a twisting, high speed experience.  The slides each feature a giant helix on the way down - and we can't forget to mention that during the plunge riders can hit speeds approaching 40 miler per hour according to the park.

The Bonzai Pipelines were added in an expansion to Hurricane Harbor, aptly named Bonzai Beach.  The area offers a new refreshment stand, tiki huts that can be rented for the day, and a sandy beach area filled with lounge chairs.  There also looks to be plenty of room left for future expansion!  You can check out a nice tour of the expanded area at SFNE Online.
