The old Riverside Cyclone was a shell of its former self. Ridership was waning due to the way the coaster has deteriorated throughout the years. They reprofiled the ride to a slow crawl that only had decent airtime in the backseat. Ive ridden its reincarnated version the Wicked Cyclone about ten times so far, and its just an amazing coaster. Whether you want to call it a steel, a wood, or a hybrid coaster is irrelevant. Its just an amazing ride from start to finish. IMO, its more fun than Bizarro (Bizarro has terrible restraints and trains). RMC has taken a restrictive layout of the old Cyclone and injected tons of great elements in every section of the track. Every train that comes back to the station is accompanied by clapping and cheering. You only really hear that for Bizarro (and even then its not as frequent as it used to be) For those who are disappointed about the destruction of the old Cyclone, I would argue that the Thunderbolt is more legendary and consistently gave better rides than Cyclone, at least in the 2000s. Even today, the Thunderbolt is still a fun air-time filled and charming coaster.
As a coaster enthusiast, this is one of my favorite rides that I have ever been on. The coaster has some of the best ejector airtime you can find out there, and it is extremely smooth. It is smoothest roller coaster in the park, and it offers the best airtime. The inversions give you upside down airtime as well. The roller coaster maintains a very high speed the entire ride. This ride is themed to a major storm and it is themed very well. Overall, this ride is a MUST DO if you love roller coasters.
Wicked Cyclone is an amazing addition to Six Flags New England, giving riders the ultimate roller coaster experience! The first hill is rather steep and slow, adding fear and anticipation. after the drop, riders are sent through a gauntlet of zero-g hills, flips, and high speeds on a hyper smooth track (No headaches or bruises on your legs). If you can get on this ride (the wait can get very long), then go for it. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
I loved it. I rode the Superman ride, the Dark Knight ride, and the Mind Eraser before this. I think it has the combination of the best parts from each rides. There are speed, steep drops, swirl turns, and loops. I felt more thrilled in the Wicked Cyclone than others! The waiting line is themed and worth looking at as well.

Absolutely an amazing roller coaster. Its my 4th all time favorite roller coaster. I love how much airtime you get on it and the inversions. It is however my all time favorite roller coaster with inversions. The 200 degree ft stall is insane! Any seat on this ride is amazing! Highly recommended
Amazing ride! The ejector airtime is crazy and the inversions are tons of fun and one of the smoothest coasters Ive been on. Out of the 73 coasters Ive ridden this one is easily in the top 5 and is so far my 2nd favorite RMC only behind lightning rod (Which I somehow managed to get on).
Words cannot describe how I felt today when it was over... so Ill put it in a simple phrase. "11/10 WOULD RIDE AGAIN!" - Michael (Rush), Coaster Nerd and Wicked Cyclone #1 Fan! p.s. This coaster literally gave me the confidence to go on Bizzaro (first time), my new 2nd fav!
I love the cyclone and was sat to see it was closing. However it just has been renovated and Id love to try the new version. Last time the line was so long so we opted to go later but never did. Hoping to catch a ride next time.
best rollercoaster at the park. I was not expecting this to be as good as bizzaro.theming at the queue is nice and thr ride gives ridiculous airtime.the airtime inversion is the best part of the ride. 8/8 m8 much apreci8
If u like airtime this is the roller coaster for you. Make sure you lap restraint is tight.... this roller coaster does somethings that you just dont expect. The zero g rolls are amazing.
Amazing!! Great thrills around every corner !!! And that first drop! And the music! And the lights at night! Its amazing! Defiantly my favorite roller coaster in the world
I went on wicked cyclone and it has some good air time hills and incredibly smooth for a wood and steel coaster. I love the inversins
Riverside Cyclone was trash and we need to forget about it because Wicked Cyclone is AWESOME! I highly recommend this ride!
So glad the kept the Cyclone alive... I was in the original crew in 1983...glad to see a hybrid rise from the ashes.
AMAZING RIDE! Super smooth and so much fun. It is scary and usually has a long line but well worth it.
An awesome refurbishing of the old wooden Cyclone into a more modern wood and metal mash up.
Fast, intense, and g-force packed! One of the first RMCs out there and it stands its ground!
This rollercoaster is one of the best roller coasters built in six flags new england
It was the best roller coaster six flags built Im glad they tore down cyclone
