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 on March 28, 2019.
History[edit | edit source]
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.
In early March 2019, the track was completed, and testing began shortly after.
On March 22, 2019, Nagashima Spa Land announced that the ride would open on March 28, 2019.
Design[edit | edit source]
Hakugei will be a Rocky Mountain Construction IBox conversion of Nagashima Spa Land's former White Cyclone wooden roller coaster. It will be the first IBox coaster as well as the first Rocky Mountain Construction coaster in Asia.
