Six Flags Over Georgia, in Austell, Georgia, announced on August 31 the arrival of the all-new Twisted Cyclone hybrid roller coaster in 2018. Twisted Cyclone will offer guests the best of both worlds—a classic wooden structure combined with a modern steel track for multiple inversions and a smoother, more thrilling riding experience.
Highlights of the Rocky Mountain Construction make-over of the former Georgia Cyclone include the following:
A 75-degree initial drop from nearly 100 feet into a reverse cobra roll (sending riders perpendicliar to the ground)
Three inversions and 10 airtime moments along 2,400 feet of track at speeds of 50 mph
A 360-degree zero-gravity roll
Custom-made coaster trains modeled after a classic 1960's sports convertible
Animated video and additional details are available to view here.
Construction on Twisted Cyclone is underway and the coaster is expected to debut in the spring of 2018.
