The Wicked Cyclone will be comprised of 3,320 feet of track and take riders on a 109-foot climb, after which they will experience a 55-mile-per-hour plunge. While dropping, riders will feel a sensation of weightlessness from new ride, billed to deliver more airtime than any other coaster across New England. It will also be the first coaster to have a “200-degree stall and two twisting Zero G Rolls,” according to Six Flags. That’s coaster-speak for holy shit!

Potential riders are pumped, judging from their tweets:
