So I'm in atlanta this weekend and decided to hit up Six Flags, and of course, Cyclone was on the list at some point. Didn't know what to expect. Didn't see anything on here about the new topper track.
It makes a world of difference and that was just for the first drop and turnaround that got the topper track. The whole thing is now very ridable. It still feels like a wooden coaster, the topper made the parts topped fell like a GCI, not so much like El Toro.
With this, I'm so much more excited to get to SDC next year to see what they can do starting from scratch.
Has anyone else ridden GA Cyclone since they did the re-tracking?
Got rides on it this Spring...very pleased with the results!
I was amazed. The trim on one hill did a little damage in slowing it down, but not severely. I never knew it had airtime because before I was in too much pain trying to brace myself.
On another note, I don't know if I've lost weight, or they changed the padding/seat divider on the trains on the 2 woodies at SFoG, but they were far more comfortable this time. And GASM was running well as usual. I swear I think GASM is far underrated.
Did only parts of the Cyclone get topper track? And if so could you tell when you were transitioning back to the original track?
The Cyclone in MA got a Rocky Mountain treatment, but only in select areas. I wonder why they wouldn't have just added topper track to the whole thing.
My feeling (based on only 2 rides on RCyclone and 1 on GCyclone) is that the New England ride tracked pretty well throughout and that the sections where work was done were the only areas the park felt needed the work. On the Georgia ride, my guess is that the first 1/3-1/2 of the ride was done, and that the park intends to do the rest this offseason...of course, that could just be hopefulness on my part.
I believe only the first drop and turnaround have been "topped" so far...
