    Wow that's cool! I thought I read this was Saturday and not Sunday. They should throw some hints out for what 2015 has to offer that night too :D

    I'm gonna be honest and say I'm not excited for IC, even though it may be great. Removing the ride really has gotten me upset and I hope I buy a pass next year. I'm kinda debating. Don't bash me for my opinion, don't say "Cyclone sucks!" or "Long live IC!" or any crap like that. IC isn't an original coaster, it's an Iron Horse. SFI *IMO* isn't doing it for rankings, it's cutting maintenance costs they care about. 4 Iron Horses... they're bound to go down on the charts.

    I will be attending, riding all day long. I will be at Cyclone. Cries!!

    That is completely off base, that's like saying custom B&M's aren't original, or it's like saying bizarro isn't a original coaster because there are other intamin mega's that's like saying most woodies aren't original , Whether a coaster is original or not is not decided by the track style. It's decided by layout, if a coaster has a very similar layout to another it's not original. NTAG, IR and Medusa are all completely different as will Cyclone. Have you seen cyclones shape, there is no way it can be even close to the other iron horses.

    I'm sure they're doing it for both rankings and maintenance. A world-class coaster that brings hoards of people to the park yet costs so little to maintain? That's a win-win for everyone, and I'm sure that's why Six Flags loves getting them.

    24 acers needed for ceremonial ride for the media on the 20th at noon. Im glad the park is giving cyclone a big sendoff considering how iconic it was to riverside when it was built. :)
