Psyclone at Six Flags Magic Mountain was a slighty modified clone of the original Cyclone wooden coaster at Coney Island's Astroland. The fan turns in this version varied from the original since they're heavily banked to reduce wear. Psyclone began with a 183-foot dark tunnel that lead to the nine-story lift hill. The coaster's first drop was a steep 53-degrees and falls eight stories. The nearly two minute ride covered a total of eleven hills and five sweeping, high-speed, banked turns. Psyclone is also the only wooden coaster in the world to use trains designed by B&M.
