Riverside Cyclone

Thursday, November 23, 2000 5:58 AM
I spent the summer working in Six Flags New England, mainly on the Riverside Cyclone And wanted to know if anyone out there had enjoyed riding it as much as I did. I'm using images of it in my painting degree in Scotland and would be interested in anything that anyone has to say about it or any other wooden coaster they had ridden.

I think it has one of the best first drops on a woodie, and a few great nasty rib cracking turns. I also love the new PTC train paint jobs.

I totally HATE this coaster! No offence to anybody but I it the WORST roller coaster I have ever ridden. When it goes fast, you smash into the side of the cars and it HURTS! Then you go slow half of the time which is boring so....

There is NO fun involved with this ride!

Dear Nate,
You should try and ride this coaster when it is raining. The track gets wet, the train goes faster, and its even more painful! But then they spoil everyones fun by closing it for the day.

Ok this ride is definitely towards the top of my "to ride" list. I know it has a reputation of being wild and it beats you around (2 qualities I look for in a wooden ride). Bill Cobb designed some wild rides, a lot of which have been reprofiled to tame them (Texas Cyclone). This is one of his that has remained untouched and it is supposed to be his wildest. Maybe I'll make a trip out to New England this year to get some more use out of my Six Flags season pass!


Coasters...the best natural buzz available.

I enjoyed the out of control feeling you get on this ride, it gets pretty hairy in spots. To me, I found that the trains on Legend hurt alot more than this one. Although I love both coasters.

Take a picture, it will last longer...

This ride is good but can be a little painful. I sat in the back row and it was a beating. My friend thought that he broke a rib. We didn't realize how bad it could be in the back seat. We watched the next train go over a couple of the hills and nooticed that everyone in the back seat was getting airtime and then getting slammed back down. If you like rough ones, this one is for you.

I have to agree with Nate. I didn't enjoy this coaster at all. I love wooden coasters, and I don't mind being thrown around a bit, but this thing even made my teeth hurt!
