Psyclone at Six Flags Magic Mountain opened in 1991. It was one of the last coasters built by the Dinn Corporation, the same company that built Mean Streak at Cedar Point. The layout was modeled after the Coney Island Cyclone.
In 1994, the Northridge earthquake damaged Psyclone’s structure. The ride was repaired, but it was never the same again. Trim brakes severly slowed the ride and the heavy trains made the ride very rough. It was consistently voted one of the worst wooden roller coasters in the world.
Due to its declining conditions and low attendance, Psyclone was demolished in 2007. It was replaced two years later by Apocalypse, a GCI woodie.
Psyclone’s trains are used to run Colossus backwards during Fright Fest.

Happy New Year!
Now that we’ve had our winter break and we’re currently trying to thaw out from the cold (no, you may not ride Millennium Force today), it’s time to look forward to this summer.
However, since I can’t manipulate the calendar, we’ll have to wait a few months and deal with the snow.
BUT that also means a healthy dose of awesome winter shots of the park.
So let’s start out with a few I’d like to share. Enjoy!
