If you’re seeking high thrills, this is not the ride for you.   The longest drop is only 90 feet  although I must say that it feels like less than that so the anticipation I felt while being pulled up the hill turned into disappointment.  The lift hill is deceptive because the drop on the other side is 22 feet shorter than the length of the lift hill.  This is not to say that a coaster must have huge drops to be great;  Phoenix at Knoebels doesn’t have any big drops and is a great ride because it has other things going for it.   What I mean to say is that Cyclone struck me as unexceptional.  I thought that the best elements of the ride were the turns (this is a twister), which do offer some decent airtime.  And although the track looks pretty rickety, the ride did not feel at all rough.  It’s not a bad ride; it’s just very tame by my standards.  Ho hum.  2 ½ out of 5 stars.   For more information about rides at Six Flags New England visitwww.sixflags.com/newengland/
