    Even though the whole Iron Horse treatment would be cool in all, I would miss Cyclone. It would be a huge loss to the park considering it wouldn’t be a full fledged wooden coaster. In my opinion, they should just make the first drop larger (similar to the way it was before 2001) and put in some 90 degree turns. Also, I think it would be a pity to see it loose its iconic white color.

      It could be the first full topper track renovation for all we know. But I do agree that it would suck being down to only one wooden coaster.

      As for the part in your comment about losing its iconic white color… This would be the first RMC renovation with painted supports so it will be interesting to see what they do with that. I assume they will make sure everything is repainted white but who knows with Six Flags. Haha.

        Well, they repainted the Thunderbolt (to my pleasant surprise).

      • Bizzaro says:

        This will be the first coaster closing to get the (iron) treatment in July. And the others like the new giant and the iron rattler.

    Oh, and did anyone notice the resemblance between Cyclone and the roller coaster in the ACE logo?

    • Luis Neves says:

      If I’m not mistaken, the coaster on the logo is supposed to be the Cyclone at Lakeside.

    This sounds wicked cool!!!!! Cyclone sucks as it is so Anythng would be better than what it’s now.

  4. Camthedominator says:

    Hey guys, but if you haven’t heard the news, Cyclone is shutting down in August this year. This could mean we have further proof to backup the rumor.

  5. Camthedominator says:

    Well if you will excuse me, I will be hiding in the corner thinking about how embarrassing this will be in the future O.o
