Wicked Cyclone


Wicked Cyclone is a steel roller coaster currently under construction at the Six Flags New England amusement park. The ride originally opened as a wooden roller coaster named Cyclone on June 24, 1983.

It operated for 31 seasons before closing on July 20, 2014. The ride's original name and design were inspired by the Coney Island Cyclone.

In June 2014, Six Flags New England announced that Cyclone would closed permanently on July 20, 2014.[8] Across its 31 seasons in operation, Cyclone was ridden by more than 15 million riders.

The decision to close the ride was made over a period of one and half years, with the park reportedly having no immediate plans to demolish the ride. On August 28, 2014, it was announced that Cyclone will undergo a transformation into the Wicked Cyclone steel-tracked roller coaster.

Manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction and designed by Alan Schilke, it will feature a 10 story drop, speeds of 55 miles per hour (89 km/h) and the world's first Double Reversing Bank Airtime Hill.

It will be the first hybrid coaster on the East Coast, and the only to have a 200 degree stall and two Zero G Rolls. The ride is set to reopen in 2015.
