Specific Type: Iron Horse
From the time that Six Flags announced the additions for 2015, enthusiasts have been extremely excited for one of the biggest changes to a roller coaster in Six Flags New England’s history. One of the iconic wooden roller coasters of the times was closed in 2014 and was rebuilt by the Rocky Mountain Coaster Company for the 2015 season as a hybrid roller coaster. RMC was in the middle of rising to the top of the wooden coaster plateau. Not only were they building unprecedented wooden coasters, but they were doing the iron horse treatments to multiple wooden coasters throughout the country. In 2015, Six Flags New England announced that Cyclone would now become Wicked Cyclone.
Guests who ride this hybrid coaster will experience a smoother and faster ride with elements that you do not find on your ordinary wooden coaster. The coaster stands at 109 feet and reaches a maximum speed of 55 mph. The coaster, by no means, breaks any records, but it does include the first 200 degree hybrid stall element. The coaster goes upside down three times with two of them being zero-g rolls. The coaster features two 24-passenger RMC trains that traverse the 3,320 feet of hybrid track. The coaster features orange color Steel I-Beams. Come with us now as we take a virtual journey on the most wicked storm in the Norteast…Wicked Cyclone!!!
As guests enter the ride queue, the anticipation and screams surround you as you walk toward the station. Once in the station, you see one of the fancy RMC trains arrive in front of you. You step into the train, pull down the lap and leg restraint, and get ready for the ride of a lifetime. The train leaves the station and hits the lift hill. The chain lifts the train to a height of 109 feet. You gasp for air at the top as the train plummets down am 81 degree drop and straight into the first overbanked right turn. After a small s-curve the train hits the signature element- the world’s first 200 degree stall. After the stall, the train hits an overbanked left turn and over 3 of 14 negative-g airtime hills. The train now speeds into the first of two zero-g rolls and into zig zag banks. After the zig-zags, the train hits the second zero-g roll. The train speeds away and into an outward airtime hill and into more airtime hills. The train hits the final brake run and returns to the station. You just tamed the cyclone while riding one of the smoothest coasters in the world.
