Sure.

What I meant by that is you are one of the first people in line due to the fact that you own one of if not the biggest theme park sites in the world.

I'd like to buy a vowel!

"Wicked Cyclone” is Coming to Six Flags New England in 2015

New England Introduces a Coaster Showcasing the Latest in Innovation


Six Flags New England, the Thrill Capital of New England, today announced plans to add a new state-of-the-art roller coaster that integrates the latest in ride technology and innovation to Massachusetts — Wicked Cyclone. The Wicked Cyclone will offer the ultimate in thrills and adrenaline combining the extreme characteristics of both steel and wood to build the first hybrid roller coaster to hit the East Coast.

“We take great pride in creating incredible, one-of-a-kind experiences for our guests here at the Thrill Capital of New England,” said John Winkler, Six Flags New England Park President. “This project has been years in the making, and the addition of Wicked Cyclone enhances our commitment to delivering world-class thrills to Six Flags New England every year.”

With its unique construction, Wicked Cyclone will be:

- A hybrid integrating a steel track on a wooden structure
- The first coaster of its kind to hit the East Coast
- A coaster with more airtime than any coaster in New England
- The first coaster of its kind to have a 200 degree stall and two Zero G Rolls
- The world’s only Double Reversing Bank Airtime Hill

Wicked Cyclone’s steel track provides riders with a smoother and more intense ride along its 3,320 feet of track. The ride stands 10 stories in the sky and reaches speeds of up to 55 mph. Once the twenty-four thrill seekers board Wicked Cyclone, it quickly climbs the 109-foot hill to then plummet at maximum speeds while providing riders with weightlessness and a truly wicked ride. Wicked Cyclone will be the first coaster of its kind to have a 200-degree stall and two Zero-G Rolls. Riders will also be able to experience more airtime than any other coaster in New England on Wicked Cyclone.

Wicked Cyclone will be storming into Six Flags New England, summer 2015 and will be a “must ride” for the ultimate thrill seekers.

Riders will experience a smoother, faster and more intense ride along its 3,320 feet of track on Wicked Cyclone. The intense Hybrid coaster integrating both wood and steel stands 10 stories in the sky and reaches maximum speeds of up to 55 mph.

Once the twenty-four thrill seekers board Wicked Cyclone, it quickly climbs the 109-foot hill to then plummet at maximum speeds while providing riders with weightlessness and a truly wicked ride.

As insane as Colossus looks, this looks like the better ride, IMO. Much like Medusa vs. Goliath last year.

It's like having flashbacks to New Texas Giant, with the giant overbanked turns and wait a sec a 200 degree stall?

Here's the audio to the announcement video! :lover: :
I LOVE CLASSIC WOODEN COASTERS AND NOSTALGIA.
I AM STRONGLY AGAINST NEUTERING WOODEN COASTERS
(Sadly) I AM THOROUGHLY AGAINST TOPPER TRACK. WOODEN COASTERS ARE SUPPOSED TO RATTLE YOU.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Can RMC build a bad coaster? Apparently not. This looks great! I wish Six Flags New England wasn't on the opposite side of the country from me, but at least this gives me a legitimate reason to return to the park next time I'm in the North East.

I know there's going to be a debate between Twisted Colossus and Wicked Cyclone, so I'll just state my opinion now: Wicked Cyclone looks like the more intense, more extreme, and more thrilling ride, but Twisted Colossus looks like the more unique and overall better ride.
Top 5 Steel: Bizarro (SFNE), Nitro, Apollo's Chariot, Maverick, Banshee
Top 5 Wood: Boulder Dash, El Toro, Thunderhead, Gold Striker, Lightning Racer
Top 3 Parks: Holiday World, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Cedar Point
TPR Trips: IntimidaTour 2010, North East Trip 2011, LeviaTHON 2012, Mini Tours 2014 (New Hotness & East Coast)

Your not missing out on anything, SFNE has started to decay. Bizarro is in awful shape, many rides are left unpainted and unkept, the midways aren't as clean as they should be and we are loosing rides left and right.

Great. Looks awesome! (it's also a little easier for me to reach than SFMM)
This applies to both this and Colossus: I'm happy that six flags didn't go for 100 inversions and managed to keep a nice amount of other things. They look like they are just in the right stop and go well with other twisty bits.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.
