  • Coaster Information:

    The Bizzaro has this name for a reason, its because the ride is bizarrely fast and scary. This coaster is a Steel Megacoaster at the Six Flags New England theme park. The Bizzaro was previously named and known as the Superman ride or Superman: Ride of Steel until 2008. This awesome coaster features some insane twists and turns at some explosive speeds. It features a 208-foot (63 m) lift hill, a 221-foot (67 m) drop and just over 1 mile of insane track. Be sure to remember this ride is located in New England and not Jersey!

    Since its debut, this coaster has been critically acclaimed, winning the Amusement Today Golden Ticket Award for Best Steel Roller Coaster in 2003, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. For a roller coaster to win this award 5 times its should certainly live up to its name and reputation!

    After the lap bars have been secured, the train leaves the station to climb the 208-foot (63 m) lift hill. To the left of the hill is the Connecticut River, and to the right is the rest of the park. The train drops 221 feet (67 m) into a headchopper tunnel after slowly cresting the hill. The train exits the tunnel, then climbs a second hill before dropping down into a 180+ degree over banked turn. Riders are catapulted between themed buildings then climb the third and fourth major hills. (The third hill is where the on-ride photo is taken.)
    The train crests a small hill marking the beginning of the second part of the ride, completing a clockwise helix. It then jumps over a bunny hill into a counter-clockwise helix. The train makes a right turn drop into a fogged tunnel. Finally, the coaster jumps three bunny hills before banking right and heading into the station.
