    Why it's a post from May? The only thing I could do is add a note that it turned out to be true but I don't feel like doing that right now.
    Also, what's up with this. Anyone notice what I'm talking about.

    What the? That's very strange.

    Anyway, I'm starting to like Wicked Cyclone. Looks like the airtime will be much better then the old version. Looks like ejector on the double dip where the hoop de doors ended. Seems like a bit of the same feel as old cyclone at parts too.

    BRING IT ON!

    I really hate when they don't put out a pov when a ride is announced. Same thing happened with Medusa last year.

    Yeah, same here. Its obnoxious. I really can't judge that well without a pov. But with what I'm seeing right now, you'll all appreciate that I think its pretty decent.

    It does look very good. If I had the time today I would make a new NL2 video and re-create it. I am busy for most of the day today and won't be able to do it after 7pm of course :D

    So is this really the biggest capital investment or whatever they said? I find that hard to believe. No way can this RMC makeover cost more than SROS did......
    Anyone know the estimated cost of WC yet?

    I was really hoping for at least one flat to come along with this ride, something that fits the same theme. Especially with Skyway leaving and potentially Scrambler too.

    Heres a random thought: Six Flags is getting rid of all their flat rides to make the lines for the other attractions larger which in turn will sell more Flash Passes which will raise their profits while also reducing their maintenance costs. They will also have to hire less college kids to man these flats.
    Its horrible but that a corporation for you. Money runs the world.

    I sadly like twisted colossus the best out of all the RMC makeovers. Cyclone is number 2.

    So out of the two promised coasters for sfne in the future, this would be the "reborn" one correct?

    No and I don't know where people kept getting that information from. The park never said anything like that.

    There are actually some bonuses and downfalls. i did a comparison on the Whalom forums http://s6.zetaboards.com/New_Whalom_Park/topic/8908664

    sorry I didn't compare air time because that information was not available.

    given the price tag this would be the largest capital investment since batman Dark night.
