Nagashima Spaland RMC coaster for 2019

Sunday, October 8, 2017 4:32 PM

White cyclone will be close over the 2018 season and per 2019 reopen as a RMC IBox track coaster.

I loved seeing photos of that coaster, but maybe it is in bad shape?

I just rode it and actually really liked it. It’s not OMG Amazing but was decent. However, I’m sure RMC could make that layout and that sized coaster into something special.

It's a visually stunning coaster. I would expect nothing but greatness from an RMC conversion.

I’m interested in what they do with the many helixes of the ride. Hopefully they’re either made way more exciting or just done away with completely.


Hey, let's ride (random Intamin coaster). What? It's broken down? I totally didn't expect that.

Iron Rattler took the triple helix and turned it into a somewhat interesting single trip around. Lots of weirdly banked hills and dips.

It will be a shame if the eliminated the helixes, as those are what makes the coaster stunning to look at.

Typically RMC rehabs have been a shortened version of the original ride because of the parks budgets. They are exciting, but they are not a full ride. Mean Streak excluded.

Twisted Timbers is longer as well.

Good to see that Cedar Fair isn't going budget on the RMCs. In a few of Six Flags rides i felt there was more that could've been done but was cut due to budget. This is especially true of their latest (Cyclone, SFOG)


Top 3: I305, Millie, El Toro

Not familiar with Hurler, but it looked like a short ride. TT looks like a short ride, too...


But then again, what do I know?

I wouldn't be the only one very upset if Nagashima Spaland were to jib the layout of White Cyclone. RMC better make use of all 5,577 feet of track!

Just curious why you assume the issue is budgetary rather than RMC's design choices or something structural?

I don’t think it’s an unreasonable assumption. RMC has proven/is proving (Wicked Cyclone, Joker, Steel Vengeance, Twisted Timbers) that they can build a ride that keeps a good amount of the original’s length, if not all or more of it. Also, look at the non-RMC coaster additions to Six Flags of late: the S&S free spins, Full Throttle, and SFMM’s Green Lantern. They’re all budget rides. Also, Six Flags has been throwing in Larson Loops and things like that aren’t, at least in my opinion, coasters at all, and yet they’re being marketed like they’re top-end thrill rides.

It just seems like Six Flags is building cheap to make sure every park gets a new ride, and I think that RMC could’ve easily delivered much more substantial re-makes on rides like Colossus and Iron Rattler than they actually did if only they’d been given a proper budget.

It'll give me a reason to go back, that's for sure. I've yet to ride an RMC coaster, and I have a better chance of getting back to Japan over the midwest.... weird how that works. My only hope is that they leave the headchoppers. I've never ridden a tighter coaster in my life. You HAVE to keep your arms in. HAVE.

Nothing shows me that they could have been stopped. Look at SeVe' 5,740 feet of track intertwining throughout the existing structure. Cedar Fair just invests in making their coasters more appealable.

Meet us there? 2020 Olympics and Spa Land? We can go to the Onsen together ;-).
