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.
