Unknown Enthusiast Strikes Again!

Six Flags New England

A renegade coaster lover known only as “The Unknown Enthusiast” was seen flagrantly violating park rules on Saturday. An ARN&R photographer was able to catch the photo below of the man, who is visiting parks throughout the country and disobeying rules, much to the chagrin of the online coaster enthusiast community. “Take that, Coasterbuzzers!” he was overheard saying as his Superman: Ride of Steel train pulled out of the station with his lapbar a full two clicks shy of touching his torso.

The Unknown Enthusiast says "F.U." to the Six Flags man

While his true identity is unknown, enthusiast vigilante groups have ruled out Robb Alvey, Jeff Putz, and the real Unknown Comic, Murray Langston. Incriminating prop comic antics in the ride’s queue (see below) did lead the groups in the direction of failed comic Rip Taylor and AT&T spokesman Carrot Top, who were cleared of any suspicion after questioning.

The fact that the tampon pictured is unused leads us to think it is an act of The Unknown Enthusiast and not a guest or employee of SFNE.

While enthusiasts who witnessed the atrocity tut-tutted the acts of The Unknown Enthusiast, none would approach him. “Yeah, he looks like he might get violent if I say something,” said AIRLURVER212. “I don’t want to risk it.”

The Unknown Enthusiast is still at large, apparently headed for Florida in order to “break rules all year.” If you see The Unknown Enthusiast, please send us an e-mail at to report his whereabouts!
