Mind Eraser, operating under that name and others at numerous parks, is markedly different in design from other inverted coasters I’ve ridden. What I’ve come to expect as standard for suspended looping coasters is an initial drop followed by a vertical loop whereas this is a horse of a different color.   Seating two across, the train goes directly from the station up the lift hill, drops 91 feet at a right angle and goes up into a rollover, which sort of resembles a pretzel with a twist at the top.   From there it goes downhill, banking left, and into a sidewinder.   Other elements of the ride include a sharp turn to the right and double inline twist.  It’s a mass of twisted steel.  The ride is extremely rough, both on the head and shoulders, so brutally rough that I couldn’t wait for it to end.   Mind Eraser doesn’t lack thrills but in my opinion it certainly lacks enjoyability.  2 ½ out of 5 stars.  For more information about rides at Six Flags New England, visit www.sixflags.com/NEWENGLAND/
