Six Flags New England, the region’s largest theme park, opens at half capacity this weekend, as Massachusetts loosens pandemic restrictions.
The Agawam amusement park is requiring reservations to ensure it stays under the 50% capacity limit set by the state and will leave empty seats between parties on rides.
But for thrill seekers who really want their own space, there's the new Supergirl Sky Flyer. Every rider has their own chair attached to a whirling ring, flipping them upside down at 25 miles per hour.
"You don't have anyone to your right or anyone to your left or anyone you can hold their hand," said Six Flags New England spokeswoman Jen McGrath.
It's a fitting attraction for the era of physical distancing, though McGrath said that is "totally coincidental."
"Everyone keeps asking us," he said. "Truly, this ride was determined prior to COVID."
Six Flags New England will welcome season pass holders Friday night and the general public on Saturday. The Supergirl ride opens on the park's second weekend, later this month.
