The unseasonably cold weather in the north-east of the US has left Six Flags New England buried under deep snow, with the park being forced to end its 2011 season a day early.
While Six Flags New England was able to open on Saturday, October 29, it closed at 3pm. The park hoped to reopen the following day, but was unable to do so due to the continuing weather conditions. However, there was still time for camera-wielding guests to take photographs of the park's attractions covered in snow.
SFNE Online features a number of photographs snapped at the park on October 29, which show rides such as the Bizarro rollercoaster in the wintry conditions. It is clear from the images why the park had to close, with walkways becoming extremely hazardous due to the snow and ice on the ground.
The October snow has caught many areas of the US by surprise, with states of emergency being declared in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and some areas of New York. The snowfall was forecast to end in New England by Monday.
