New Photos + Video of Six Flags Great Adventure's Wild New Cyborg Cyber Spin Ride

Six Flags Great Adventure has released some new photos and video of the new-for-2018 attraction, named Cyborg Cyber Spin.  The intense flat ride, seen above in operation, is very much like a gyroscope and is described by the park as "jaw-dropping," which I agree with 100%!

The attraction is technically a Tourbillion from ABC Rides, which until now wasn't something you could easily ride in North America.

The ride movements of Cyborg Cyber Spin are complicated to describe in text, though the theme park has done a great job:  "Cyborg Cyber Spin 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."

It's kind of like a taffy puller but in a couple more dimensions, if that even makes any sense!  The attraction will feature a dazzling set of lights all over the structure and is located in the park adjacent to the Justice League: Battle for Metropolis ride.

The ride should be fully tested and approved for public operation withing a few weeks, but no firm date has been given.

Until those brave enough to ride get their chance, check out the video below of the ride in action!
