I was really excited to make it up to the hallowed ground that is Coney Island to ride the legendary Cyclone. The trek across New York City, my exciting rides on the Cyclone, and my visit to the historic Playland Park in Rye made for quite an adventure. With the addition of Luna Park and ScreamZone this summer, Coney Island should be a destination for coaster enthusiasts. You won’t grow your coaster count by leaps and bounds, but you will experience a piece of amusement park history in the living legend that is the Cyclone.
I won’t have too many pictures of myself in the book, but this was one of my best photos of The Cyclone. For some reason, I find it hard to get really good pictures of wooden roller coasters.
