    I just want a full on ride pov

  • Luis Neves

    I wonder if there’s going to be a lift hill topper like the one on Texas Giant. That would be a nice touch.

  • zach

    I would go on that. would they have the season pass holders go on first?

    • Most likely, yes! Every ride since Gotham City Gauntlet has had a season pass preview weekend. I’m sure Wicked Cyclone will be no different!

    Does anyone know if the wheels are going to be bare steel or polyurethane-coated?

    • Just got an answer from the park. They will be using urethane composite wheels. Since you seem to know more about coaster wheels than me, do you know what this means?

      • Luis Neves

        Bare steel wheels are used on most wooden coasters, and contribute to part of the traditional “wooden” feel.

        Polyurethane wheels are typically found on steel coasters, and give a smoother ride. However, they have higher friction, so the ride will lose speed more quickly. El Toro uses them, which is one of the reasons people say it feels like a steel coaster.

        • So what’s urethane composite then? Because I specifically asked the park if it was steel or polyurethane. I thought since Wicked Cyclone will be shorter, they would have to use something other than polyurethane. Is a urethane composite the same as plain old polyurethane?

          I also know that SFNE’s Goliath uses nylon, so that’s another difference. Wheels are confusing. Haha.

          • Luis Neves

            I’m pretty sure that means a mixture of polyurethane and another material. I’m not sure how that will effect the ride, though.
