AGAWAM (WGGB) — Another huge attraction is coming soon to Six Flags New England.

Six Flags announced Thursday live on ’40 in the Morning’ that they plan to build a new hybrid coaster called the “Wicket Cyclone.”

The state-of-the-art roller coaster uses the latest ride technology and combines elements of both steel and wood roller coasters.

It will have a steel track on a wooden structure, the first to include this combination in the entire East coast. It offers more airtime than any coaster in New England and has plenty of sky-high thrills.

The 3,320-foot track stands 10-stories at its highest point and riders will reach speeds of up to 55 m.p.h.

It will be constructed ahead of its opening in the summer of 2015 at Six Flags New England.

Six Flags is also announcing a Season Pass deal for the 2015 season. From now to Labor Day, they’re offering a free upgrade to a Gold Season Pass with each season pass purchased for $49.99.
