Just a few aerial views of Cyborg from this past Tuesday (5/8):   https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1e1Vn4lLuZ8os1T3QzdUSlvDbksmq5rAw?usp=sharing

Instant vomit if I ride this ride lol

My hope is that this is a small, relatively small addition to free up capital for a "major" new attraction next year. Especially if the Meadowlands thing finally gets off the ground.   I also would

Wow... Reminds me of Space Rings in RollerCoaster Tycoon! I don't think I have ever seen an actual picture of that type of ride/attraction/thing.

Great aerials Phil!  I was hoping you’d be flying over the new construction.  Thanks for sharing!

This will definitely be a fun ride to watch especially at night and possibly from a distance lol. I have to wonder how many people will attempt to ride it and then want to ride it again.

Spinsanity Caught on Video:

CYBORG Cyber Spin Takes Extreme Test Run

 

Six Flags Great Adventure will debut world’s first

three-axis thrill ride in coming weeks

 

JACKSON, NJ – May 29, 2018  Six Flags Great Adventure’s new jaw-dropping, gyroscope-themed thrill ride, CYBORG Cyber Spin, took a test run as it prepares for opening in the coming weeks. The flawless run was captured by on-board and ground video.

 

The intense thrill ride, the first of its kind anywhere in the world and the first ride themed to the DC Super Hero CYBORG, features a unique futuristic triple box design that allows the gondola to spin around three separate axes while rotating forward, backwards and sideways simultaneously at up to 70 feet in the air. Its first riders were water-filled, plastic dummies that simulate the weight and proportions of human thrill seekers. Point-of-view video was captured from a chest-mounted GoPro camera to give anxious fans a first-hand look at the extreme ride experience.

  

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.

 

During the next few weeks, engineers will fine-tune the ride control system and complete extensive testing, followed by a series of inspections, and final certification by New Jersey state ride inspectors.
