First of all I would like to apologize for the lack of posts recently, life has been busy and there hasn’t been too much news either.
Almost everyone has heard of the Coney Island Cyclone in New York, in fact it is so famous that there have been many coasters at other parks that imitate its layout.
So the ride leaves the station, turns to the left and up the lift hill. The first drop turns to the left slightly and throws you against the side of the car. The bottom of the first drop slams you into your seat again. The first turn at the top of the next hill isn’t banked enough so it throws you to the side again. I spent the rest of the ride hanging on for dear life while being slammed in all directions. The few airtime hills that the ride does have crushed my legs due to the painful lap bars. The brake run slammed us to a stop and then we waited for what seemed like forever to unload. This ride hasn’t aged well unlike some.
I suppose it would feel like that in the middle of a cyclone so the ride lives up to its name. Unfortunately it also lives up to its reputation as a rough coaster. I am giving it a 2 out of 10.
It has been announced that the Georgia Cyclone will be receiving new topper track for the 2012 season so it will not be as rough.
Have you been on Georgia Cyclone? What do you think? Please comment. Thanks for reading. 🙂
