History

A Twisted Cyclone car on display at IAAPA

Georgia Cyclone closed on July 30, 2017.[1] The coaster was announced on August 31, 2017.[2]

The lead car for Twisted Cyclone was revealed at IAAPA 2017.[3]

The height was raised to 100 feet (30 m), the angle was steepened to 75 degrees, and a total of ten airtime hills and three inversions were added along the course of the ride. The trains had their theme modified to represent a 1960s-era sports convertible, and the maximum speed remained unchanged at 50 mph. The track was shortened to approximately 2,400 feet (730 m).

Construction of Twisted Cyclone officially began in the fall of 2017.[4]

In the spring of 2018, construction was complete with the final track piece being installed.[5] Testing of the attraction began in May 2018.[6]

Twisted Cyclone opened to Six Flags season pass holders and members on May 24, 2018[7] and to the general public the following day.[8]
