    According to RCDB, White Cyclone at Nagashima Spa Land is getting RMCd, and will be ready for 2019:-

    White Cyclone is due to close on January 28th, 2018.

    So I guess this was the RMC in Japan that was being talked about...

    This has a lot of potential, nice to see RMC broadening their horizons too.

    They need to also get their hands on Regina and, especially, Jupiter. Intamin have built some real s**t in Japan.

    Nooooo! I love White Cyclone. It was so lame it was actually hilarious, just bouncing round the track. Never laughed so much on a woodie before. We had a fab night ride on it just laughing the whole way round.

    Seriously though, this is exciting news, seeing RMC spreading their wings into Asia. I hope White Cyclone still looks as gorgeous when they finish. RMC do sometimes have a habit of making things looks a bit ugly and I've always thought WC looks fab, especially all lit up at night (a bit similar to American Eagle at SFGAm). I'm sure I'll still be happy though as I doubt they'll make many changes to the base structure. Hopefully it'll retrain its traditional white paint too.

    This was my FB cover photo for a while:

    Kinda hoping it's just topper track since it looks really impressive as it is now. Maybe RMC could do some alterations to the layout to make it more intense instead of just all out Iron Horsing it. The fact that they're saying "closing temporarily" makes me wonder if it is actually an Iron Horse treatment since parks tend to say "closing permanently" if that's the case.

    But that all depends on what they're reopening it as and by saying 'temporarily' they're inferring it's making a return and that it's not going away forever. Which for their market isn't the worst thing they can do.

    It won't be closing that 'temporarily' - it's closing for at least a year.

    Also, this is a Japanese park - lets maybe not read too much in to their English statements?

    You don't want them to just topper track it, White Cyclone is :emoji_poop: and needs to be Iron Horsed.

    Slightly more bothered about Spite Cyclone now. Would have liked to try it in the original format.

    Don't touch Jupiter just yet, your review makes me deeply regret skipping it.

    With its gorgeous white supports and fairly interesting layout/footprint I am very excited. Wonder what they'll do with those gigantic helixes.

    I'm confused... What am I missing from that POV?

    The description of the video says it will be reborn in 2019 as a hybrid

    Is that hinting at inversions? 'which is the twist of drilling rotation (transverse rotation)', or merely stating that it can perform manoeuvres that normal woodies couldn't?

    Every single conversion after NTG has had inversions, so it’s more than likely

    Of all the layouts they've remastered, this is the largest right?
    The huge helices just don't really seem like something RMC can do much with but I'm certainly intrigued
