If you've ever ridden Coney Island's iconic Cyclone, then you know that it’s scary (If you haven’t, take our word for it — it’s frightening). But not for the reasons you’d expect. Mostly because it’s made of wood, rickety, and old as hell; it legitimately feels/sounds like it's going to collapse at any moment.
To ensure that its version of the Cyclone never thrilled riders simply by falling into a state of disrepair, Six Flags New England retired its 30-plus-year-old version of the coaster in July. And then we waited.
Until now. The park finally unveiled the coaster’s replacement: the Wicked Cyclone. Scheduled to debut next summer, the nearly 110ft-tall ride will hurtle riders through 14 zero-gravity airtime hills, including the world’s only double-reverse bank hill and a 200-degree stall, as well as three added inversions in a ridiculous 97 seconds!
