Hakugei is a steel hybrid roller coaster located at Nagashima Spa Land in Nagashima, Kuwana, Mie, Japan. It is a Rocky Mountain Construction I-Box conversion of White Cyclone and opened on 28 March 2019.
After White Cyclone closed, construction on the ride began with the stripping of the ride's wooden track. White Cyclone's signature helices were then removed before the track began to arrive in June 2018.
On 24 September 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.
On 22 March 2019, Nagashima Spa Land announced that the ride would open on 28 March 2019.
Hakugei is a Rocky Mountain Construction I-Box conversion of Nagashima Spa Land's former White Cyclone wooden roller coaster. It is the first I-Box coaster, as well as the first Rocky Mountain Construction coaster in Asia.
Hakugei (白鯨) is Japanese for "White Whale".
