The new steel blue track is being installed over a wooden frame at the same site of the former Georgia Cyclone.
When complete, the Twisted Cyclone will feature a nearly 100-foot hill, 75-degree initial drop and reach speeds of 50 mph. The coaster will take riders through inversions, "airtime moments" and more.
