Six Flags Over Georgia to Debut Twisted Cyclone Hybrid Roller Coaster Wood and Steel Thrill Coming in 2018
AUSTELL, Ga. — August 31, 2017 — Six Flags Over Georgia—the Thrill Capital of the South—today announced the all-new Twisted Cyclone hybrid roller coaster will arrive 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.
“Six Flags was the first in the industry to introduce this hybrid technology and Twisted Cyclone is a shining example of Six Flags innovation at its very best. Year after year, our park keeps delivering unique thrills for all ages and this state-of-the-art hybrid coaster is an absolute game- changer,” said Park President Dale Kaetzel. “Our guests are going to be blown away by the unbelievable features of this coaster.”
Twisted Cyclone highlights include: - An insanely steep 75-degree initial drop from nearly 100 feet into a jaw-dropping reverse cobra roll sending riders perpendicular to the ground; - Three hair-raising upside down inversions and 10 airtime moments along 2,400 feet of track at speeds of 50 miles per hour; - The feeling of weightlessness through a 360-degree zero gravity roll; - One-of-a-kind custom coaster trains modeled after a classic 1960’s sports convertible; and - A smoother, sleeker, more intense ride than ever before.
Construction on Twisted Cyclone is underway and the ride is expected to debut in the spring of 2018.
