The coasters are gone from the park's website and park officials are said to have confirmd the moves.

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.
