AGAWAM, Mass., Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Six Flags New England, the Thrill Capital of New England, today announced plans to add a new state-of-the-art roller coaster that integrates the latest in ride technology and innovation to Massachusetts—Wicked Cyclone. The Wicked Cyclone will offer the ultimate in thrills and adrenaline combining the extreme characteristics of both steel and wood to build the first hybrid roller coaster to hit the East Coast.
"We take great pride in creating incredible, one-of-a-kind experiences for our guests here at the Thrill Capital of New England," said John Winkler, Six Flags New England Park President. "This project has been years in the making, and the addition of Wicked Cyclone enhances our commitment to delivering world-class thrills to Six Flags New England every year."
With its unique construction, Wicked Cyclone will be:
- A hybrid integrating a steel track on a wooden structure
- The first coaster of its kind to hit the East Coast
- A coaster with more airtime than any coaster in New England
- The first coaster of its kind to have a 200 degree stall and two Zero G Rolls
- The world's only Double Reversing Bank Airtime Hill
Wicked Cyclone's steel track provides riders with a smoother and more intense ride along its 3,320 feet of track. The ride stands 10 stories in the sky and reaches speeds of up to 55 mph. Once the twenty-four thrill seekers board Wicked Cyclone, it quickly climbs the 109-foot hill to then plummet at maximum speeds while providing riders with weightlessness and a truly wicked ride. Wicked Cyclone will be the first coaster of its kind to have a 200-degree stall and two Zero-G Rolls. Riders will also be able to experience more airtime than any other coaster in New England on Wicked Cyclone.
Wicked Cyclone will be storming into Six Flags New England, summer 2015 and will be a "must ride" for the ultimate thrill seekers.
Six Flags is also announcing the start of 2015 Season Pass sales with a limited time offer through Labor Day featuring the lowest prices of the year.
