It's cute. I like the first drop's kick to the left, which is a good wink to the original layout. Can't wait to ride it!

Something tells me that TC is gonna HAUL at night. Just a couple of weeks until I'm in the back row with my hands up! :airtimer: :airtimer:

I think they should have placed the on-ride camera after the wave turn. That would have made for some hilarious photo's in my opinion.

Twisted Cyclone Media Day!

Today I was invited to the Twisted Cyclone media event which was a blast. The event was great and I ended up getting three rides in (Once in the front to film the rider cam, and two in the back). They did an amazing job of revamping the new area and the station building looks amazing. The queue has some newly added theming, however, the queue house is pretty small so I don't know how it is going to handle opening weekend crowds. I love how they added a gift shop and a photo kiosk as well.

Alright, now let's talk about the ride. The rider cam video shows my reaction to my first ride, and my reaction says it all... O M G

This coaster completely blew away my expectations. I have only ridden one other RMC (Lightning Rod), but this is clearly the best ride in the park now; it is probably one of my favorite rides as well. The POV does not do the ride justice. Just about every moment that is not spent upside down, is spent out of your seat. This ride really tries to throw you out of your seat the ejector airtime is *that* strong. The rides pacing is amazing because the ride gets better as it goes through the layout. The reverse cobra roll, in my opinion, is the most boring (least exciting) part of the ride... and its still FREAKING AMAZING. The wave turn is amazing because you stay out of your seat until you start going up the next hill, but the best part hasn't even come yet. The best part is everything after the second turnaround. The hill after the overbank is just pure airtime heaven. And then it is just ejector pop after pop with a zero-g roll stuck in the middle. The small over banks and bunny hills inside the structure are some of the most exciting moments of the ride. After that turnaround, your butt doesn't hit the seat until you hit the brakes.

Regarding were to sit, the inversions and wave turn was better in the front, but the drop was absolutely insane in the back as well as all of the bunny hills. Overall this is definitely a sleeper hit and a perfect fit for the park!

Here's the POV.

This looks fun! I love that RMC is using those funky prelift bunny hops from Twisted Colossus on more coasters.

Also went to media day and probably got about 10 rides in. Awesome ride. Doesn’t feel as short as I expected. I will say Wicked Cyclone is better based on my tastes in a ride, but Twisted Cyclone is amazing in its own way. I love how the intensity increases throughout the ride. That is not usually the case with RMCs. The area looks wonderful too.

Also, the park was absolutely empty (Goliath ran with half empty trains all morning) and that was pleasant since I rarely get to go on a week day.

Hehe...I was thinking something similar. It's like a cute mini-version of Steel Vengeance! ;)

And that's not meant to be a put-down either. So glad to see RMC'ed coasters everywhere!

Also love the grab a beer and run like hell signs...awesome!

That's a bit unfair. A great ride doesn't necessarily require great length. This RMC packs a lot of punch in it's short layout.

Great report! It looks like an awesome coaster!

Where does this need to compare everything come from? I feel like people would enjoy coasters a lot more if they didn’t spend so much time trying to figure out what coasters are better than the one they’re currently riding / focused on.

PS: It’s a POV
