During the early years, the amusement park did not have many visitors because everyone who wished to visit the park had to arrive through a steamship. In 1900, the railways extended its line to the riverside , Springfield thus making it easier for people to reach the amusement park and enjoy its rides. Although the park was opened to the public in 1870, it got its first-ever roller coaster, the Giant Dip in 1912. This development was made by Henry J. Perkins who bought the park in 1911.

Later the Park also got a 300-foot long pool which came to be known as Lake Takadip. Under Perkins’ leadership, the amusement park made great advancement, having 3 roller coaster rides by 1928. Even today, Six Flags New England is one of the biggest and most popular amusement destinations in the country, known for thrilling rides and spectacular experiences.
