The Georgia Cyclone was far from the first coaster at the park. Opened in 1990, it is a mirror image of the legendary Coney Island Cyclone. Considered a classic roller coaster ride, generations of families have ridden the Georgia Cyclone together over the years. The ride was extremely popular when it first opened but the ride has been overshadowed by more modern rides including Goliath and Superman.
