Do not judge
a book by its cover. This is what I was thinking after riding the Cyclone at Six
Flags, New England. This wood monster doesn't even look like a threat, but
guess what? It is! Opened for the 83' season, Cyclone is still top ten
material (east coast) even after 15 years. Why? Well for one thing, Cyclone
Screams! No matter what car you decide to take, Cyclone will have you
shaking. It begins with the classic clickity clack of the lift hill chain
and then you're off. From the ground, the first drop does not look
impressive, as a matter of fact, it barely goes 1/2 way down. That's the beauty.
Cyclone always lulls riders into a false sense of nostalgia. This thing, a
little old, always packs a timely reality slap. Cyclone is good!
There is only one problem with this coaster...they only have two trains and
most of the time only one is operating. Plan to ride this early as the wait
could last hours.
Flags, NE are short of Coaster Operators they decide to close the Cyclone.
Bad decision. Leave this thing open!
