Hakugei is a steel roller coaster presently under construction at Nagashima Spa Land in Japan. It will be a Rocky Mountain Construction IBox conversion of White Cyclone and is opening in March 2019.

History[edit | edit source]

Hakugei is replacing White Cyclone, an Intamin wooden roller coaster that closed on January 28, 2018. The conversion was first announced in December 2017.

After White Cyclone closed, construction on the ride began with the stripping of the ride's wooden track. White Cyclone's signature helixes were then removed before the track began to arrive in June 2018.

On September 24, 2018, Nagashima Spa Land officially revealed that the ride would be named Hakugei. They also revealed that the ride would be 5,019.7 feet long, that it would have an 80 degree first drop and that it would open in March 2019.

Design[edit | edit source]
