The Austell amusement park's newest attraction is rising amid the wooden, weathered skeleton of what was once the Georgia Cyclone, which opened in 1990.
The Twisted Cyclone will be made of wood and steel. The bright-blue steel track will provide for a smoother, sturdier and more thrilling ride experience. It will feature a nearly 100-foot lift hill, 75-degree initial drop, reach speeds of 50 miles per hour and send riders through several head-over-heels inversions and airtime moments. The park opens for the season on March 10.
Six Flags recently observed its 50th anniversary.
