The coasters are gone from the park's website and park officials are said to have confirmd the moves.
The demise of Flashback, which hasn't operated for years, should be no surprise. But the removal of Psyclone, another coaster criticized for a rough ride, should provide further proof that Six Flags CEO Mark Shapiro is serious about repositioning the former "Xtreme Park" as a more family-friendly attraction.
