The Cyclone Roller Coaster Coney Island NY – 101 Riegelmann Boardwalk, Brooklyn, NY 11224 – http://www.thepointboston.net/
A bucket list ride that I finally checked off this summer. Suzi J does not like roller coasters so I decided to take on this assignment. I rode this coaster on the 4th of July 2018 on a day trip we took to NYC.
This coaster opened in 1927 and was part of the Astroland park that was in Coney island. Since then, the parks have change some and now is part of Luna Park. The cool part of this ride is that you can just pay to ride it and don’t have to get a day pass or anything. I think it was about $7 – $10 to ride.
The park is closed for the winter and opens up in April. I would think it probably closes around Columbus day in October. The ride is cool because as you climb up, you have a nice view of the beach and the entire boardwalk. The lines moves pretty fast and if you are going to have someone film you, tell them to go to the side where there is a little alley way and can catch you about halfway into the ride coming down a hump back.
Highest point is about 85 feet and you hit max speed at about 60 MPH.
If you are in NYC and have some time, check this out!
