Nagashima’s White Cyclone to Receive RMC Conversion
Nagashima Spa Land has constantly been a dream destination for countless coaster enthusiasts. In 2019, it’s about to become an even bigger dream as the park is debuting a new coaster that is sure to be highly sought after by coaster enthusiasts. The park has hired Rocky Mountain Construction to perform an IBox re-tracking of their White Cyclone coaster.
White Cyclone, an Intamin wooden coaster, opened in 1994. Designed by the Stand Company, the ride was 139 feet tall, over 5500 feet long and reached speeds in excess of 63 MPH. The ride was quietly closed on January 28th of 2019.
Spa Land hasn’t released much info yet about the new hybrid coaster. The park has just recently started hinting at the new ride by placing a teaser over the outline of White Cyclone on the park map—indicating a new hybrid coaster is coming in 2019.
On March 10th, construction fences went up around the former entrance-way of the ride. The sign on the fence read “Great Hybrid Coaster… Coming in 2019 spring” along with an image of a whale.
When the re-imagined coaster opens in the spring of 2019, it will be the second ride RMC has manufactured for the park, as they also manufactured the rails for the Arashi 4D Free Spin coaster.
