Since it opened in 1990, Georgia Cyclone has become an iconic part of Six Flags Over Georgia's coaster collection. In just two weeks, however, the wooden roller coaster will take its final ride. The Austell park has announced that it will retire Georgia Cyclone at the end of July. Georgia Cyclone opened 27 years ago, with a design based on the legendary Cyclone at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York.
Gene Petriello, spokesperson for Six Flags Over Georgia, said that although he couldn't discuss what might fill the soon-to-be empty space, each year a new ride is added to the park and Six Flags Over Georgia will continue to deliver innovative and thrilling rides for its guests.
Six Flags will likely reveal the replacement attraction in early September, when the annual announcement is made about park projects for the coming year.
