That's rough. Pass holders have to wait? I was going to go over there tomorrow. No point

That will give them time to fix all the damage done to the queue.  It is hard for us to have nice things.

SIx Flags is really pushing membership on everyone. Pass holders are eventually going to be forgotten it seems

That is good to see the park included season pass holders for all 3 days of the preview.

I rode Cyborg today and it was just okay. Nothing terrible about it, but there was just no intensity to it. It felt pretty slow on the ride. The restraints were comfortable and there were points where I did get some good hangtime which was fun but otherwise nothing to rave about. I think twister is better.

I was able to get on the first full cycle this morning.  It was fun but not as intense as I was expecting. Second ride was better so it seems to vary. Here’s a full off-ride that I shot this morning.

Six Flags Great Adventure to Debut First-of-its-Kind Thrill Ride Tomorrow

 

DC Super Hero CYBORG Themed Ride Takes Riders for the Ultimate Spin in 2018

 

 

JACKSON, N.J. — June 12, 2018  Six Flags Great Adventure, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, today announced that the world’s first thrill ride themed to the DC Super Hero CYBORG will preview to media and influencers on June 13 at 11 a.m. and celebrate its highly-anticipated grand opening to the public at 2 p.m. Inspired by the movement of a gyroscope, CYBORG Cyber Spin will deliver an unrelenting and intense anti-gravity experience as it whirls guests on three axes high above the ground.

 

“Six Flags Great Adventure is thrilled to launch its newest innovation, an unparalleled, hi-tech ride unlike anything our guests have ever seen or experienced,” said Park President, John Winkler. “CYBORG Cyber Spin is the first-of-its-kind in the world, and the perfect addition to our renowned collection of record-breaking attractions. Our new Metropolis section is now home to the most futuristic, jaw-dropping thrill ride in the park.”

 

Themed to Super Hero CYBORG of the JUSTICE LEAGUE, CYBORG Cyber Spin features a unique, revolutionary triple box design. It allows the gondola to spin around three separate axes while rotating forward, backwards and sideways simultaneously at up to 70 feet in the air for intense and continuous movement. Seated 24 across with over-the-shoulder harnesses, riders will experience a thrilling combination of negative and positive gravitational forces. By night, this bold, new attraction promises to light up the New Jersey skies beckoning thrill seekers from near and far.

 

CYBORG Cyber Spin highlights include:

 

·         Unpredictable flips and pivots at heights up to seven stories (70 feet) above the ground;

·         Floorless seats that leave riders’ feet dangling as they whirl through the air;

·         Dazzling nighttime light display; and

·         Located in Metropolis adjacent to JUSTICE LEAGUE: Battle for Metropolis.

I finally got to see this and it is amazing to see in person, although I thought it was kind of a short ride and slow. A couple of people that got off were complaining about how it wasn't anything spectacular and how they only flipped once. However, the next one I watched it flipped 6 times with a few of them being at what looked like a pretty good speed. I thought that was decent.

I went yesterday to ride it for the first time but it was closed from when I got there to ride it to closing.  The ironic thing was that it started to test right after the park had closed.

I wonder if the beam opposite the seats on the inner most ring is solid or filled with something to counterbalance the weight of the riders.  

 

After looking at the videos I think the answer to my question is NO.  That is probably why there are more upside flips when the seats are partially empty (less weight) than when it is fully loaded.  `

Not sure if it's solid/filled or empty, but the top half of that inner ring is subtly larger than the bottom half with the seats. As in, if you were to detach the seats, the top would be bulkier and heavier. That's gotta be just a tiny amount of difference, though. I'm sure with the seats, they'd want the seat side to be heavier so that the gondola would rest right-side-up in a failure.

So, what kind of damage did the hoodlums do?

My guess for the first thing to be vandalized are the thin decorative pieces meant to look like a circuit board. They can easily be bent and the fence right in front of the ride will be a pretty high-traffic area for that.

That is the first thing I was thinking of too when I saw those in people’s pictures.    I hope they survive for many years to come.

It looks like Cyborg already ate through a motor.  A replacement one was delivered today.  Full trip report coming soon.

Yes,  I also saw that they were working on it today. When I went by they were tightening bolts and checking alignments.  I just assumed that it was general maintenance after running it for a certain period of time to ensure structural integrity.  Since I have not yet experienced the attraction, I pondered why they did not do the general maintenance between 10:30 PM and 10:30 AM when the park was closed. However, after seeing the photos you posted, I guess cyborg was out of commission waiting for a new motor.

 

On a different note, I was a little disappointed that go fresh was not open today, as they have several new salads. Accordingly, it was a day of unhealthy carnival food for me.

 

 I also had a 35 minute wait picking up my flash pass again this morning. Still not real happy about that.

I'm riding this when I go to the park on Wednesday, because I find Cyborg hot (not as hot as I find Hawkeye, but still.) 

 

Those THIGHS.

I rode this for the first time today. It was interesting, but I sort of place it in the El Diablo category, as it was more hype than it deserved.
