AUSTELL, Ga. - Since it first opened in 1990, Georgia Cyclone has become an iconic part of Six Flags Over Georgia, but in just two weeks, the wooden roller coaster will take its final ride.
Early Monday morning, Six Flags Over Georgia announced exclusively to Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken that the park will retire Georgia Cyclone at the end of July.
Georgia Cyclone opened 27 years ago, with a design based on the legendary coaster of the same name at Coney Island.
Georgia Cyclone is a wooden coaster with nearly 3,000 feet of track, reaching top speeds of around 50 miles per hour.
Paul spent Monday morning at Six Flags Over Georgia, getting details on why the park is closing the ride and how fans can take advantage of its final two weeks of operation.
