Trains

Single train with 2 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 3 rows, for a total of 12 riders per train. Cyclone's train is built by Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters, Inc.. These PTC trains where reused from the Cyclone in Palisades Amusement Park, thus the name of the coaster was changed from Zipper to Cyclone in order to match the new train. The ride opened with different trains, the manufacturer of these is unknown.
