Location: Austell, GA (USA)
The 2017 season is in full swing at Six Flags Over Georgia. The park is continuing to build on a successful debut of the new Justice League: Battle for Metropolis which opened this past May. As many park guests and their families continue to walk through the turnstiles there is a classic ride they should plan to cross off their list. The Georgia Cyclone is taking it’s last cycle on July 30. After 27 years of operation the trains will come to a halt in the station, the queue lines will be empty, and the sign out front will read “This attraction is closed”.
Georgia Cyclone opened in 1990 and is a mirror image of the Coney Island Cyclone located in New York. The ride stands at a height of 95 feet tall and reaches speeds of 50 mph. The ride has thrilled 8.7 million riders since its debut. The Georgia Cyclone has many airtime hills and a large first drop. Park guests will have the opportunity to get in one last ride before the Georgia Cyclone closes forever on July 30. As for the future of Georgia Cyclone, an announcement would come soon for it’s replacement.
What will replace Georgia Cyclone? That is a question that many of us want an answer to. Park officials have not given any clues or confirmation as to what will replace the ride but are encouraging you to get your last rides in before the ride closes forever. The speculation will continue to build as to what will replace the ride or if the ride will undergo a transformation into a better ride experience. All of this speculation will come to a close when an park officials make an official announcement. The final train will leave the station on July 30 so sit back hold on tight and enjoy your ride on the Georgia Cyclone.
