Last month, Six Flags Over Georgia announced that their classic wooden coaster, Georgia Cyclone, would be going away forever. In a pattern we've all come to recognize, the park came back today with the news that the ride will return next year as Twisted Cyclone—an IBox coaster from Rocky Mountain Construction.
Last week, Cedar Fair's parks made their announcements for next year's new attractions. With Cedar Point, Kings Dominion, Knott's, and California's Great America each getting a major new roller coaster, 2018 is sure to be a big year for the chain. Let's take a look at what each Cedar Fair park will be adding next year.
This week Silver Dollar City revealed their revolutionary new ride—the world's tallest, fastest, and steepest spinning coaster. Time Traveler is the first Xtreme Spinning Coaster from Mack Rides, meaning it will be able to complete inversions and launches not found on a traditional spinning coaster.
Kings Dominion has been hard at work transforming their old wooden coaster into a stunning hybrid from Rocky Mountain Construction. Keeping Hurler's old layout, the park has intensified the ride's airtime hills, added overbanked turns and inversions, and given the ride a new name: Twisted Timbers.
Ever since Cedar Point began transforming Mean Streak into a wild new Rocky Mountain Construction hybrid, we've been patiently waiting to hear the full details on the new coaster. Now, the park has made their official announcement, revealing a towering IBox coaster called Steel Vengeance.
In a surprise announcement today, Six Flags Fiesta Texas revealed their plans to build Wonder Woman Golden Lasso—the world's first single-rail coaster from Rocky Mountain Construction.
