While I wasn't a big fan of Cyclone, it wasn't because I dislike wood coasters. Some of my favorite rides are wood coasters. The 1957 Phoenix, the 1964 Blue Streak, the 1968 Thunderbolt, the 2006 El Toro, and the 2011 Twister are all at the top of my list of best roller coasters. The old Cylone wasn't anywhere on my list of favorite coasters, but the new Wicked Cyclone sure is. It is an amazingly fun ride and a massive improvement over the old version.
