Six Flags New England & Hurricane Harbor
Technically the oldest of the Six Flags franchises, the former Riverside Amusement Park was purchased by the amusement park giant in 1996. Children of all ages can enjoy the park's array of rides, which includes one of the largest wooden roller coasters in the world. The park also houses the Hurricane Harbor Water Park, and many rides and areas designated for smaller children. Visit around Halloween to encounter one of New England's scariest spots, as Six Flags puts on its annual Fright Fest. The park's hours change daily, so be sure to check online before visiting.
