Has anyone here been on it this year. I went there last weekend after our junior prom and the whole first drop was re-profiled. now the first part of the drop only goes down like 20 feet and niot steep at all. This used to be the best part of the ride. also then it goes up a little bit and banks slightly. if any one knows what this ride looks like it goes up almost to the second turnaround. It looks terrible and i heard it is very boring know although extreamly smooth. I did not have a chance to ride it due to my broken arm. but i think if i did i would be dissapointed. I think they just needed to re-track the first drop and buy some Millenium Fliers. but instead they decided to castrate another of bill cobbs masterpieces.

I rode Cyclone this year, and I enjoyed it immensely over last year. The improvements to the track and structure made this a much less painful and far more enjoyable ride. I was glad to see the improvements made and I am surpised that they would upset anyone given that this was quite an uncomfortable ride in the past. With new trains last year and track improvements this year, I would say that SFNE has given new life to this once infamous coaster.

I think its a VERY intense but great ride. I think they should have left the drop the way it was. I have yet to ride it this season so who knows...
