There were rumors of a couple of Six Flags wooden coasters getting some of Rocky Mountain Construction's new Topper Track this winter, and as it turns out they were true. Above is an image of the type of topper track that has been installed on the coasters.
Reports came flying in when Six Flags Fiesta Texas opened this past weekend that The Rattler had a section of its track replaced. In a batch of photos posted on TPR we get a good look at the new steel 'topper' track that sits on top of the existing wooden structure.
Cyclone at Six Flags New England is also receiving some of the track, though we can't be sure how much yet at the park isn't open. SFNE Online posted a photo of the track at the park, making the renovations a sure bet.
Depending on how the track is received on these two coasters, we may be seeing a lot more of this style of refurbishment in the future.
