One of two must-experience rides in Brooklyn's famous Coney Island is the Cyclone roller coaster (The other ride is the Wonder Wheel). Modern coasters tend to be steel structures, allowing for cork-screw twists, loops, etc., and there is no denying that they can be very...More

58 year old guy on solo visit to NY and my first time to Coney Island. Came to stroll the boardwalk and beach, but when I came upon the Cyclone I knew I had to ride it and check it off my bucket list. Luckily...More

You can take the subway to Coney Island and visit the beach as well as many other rides, but The Cyclone is the one that just celebrated 91 years. It's been around since your grandparents were kids. If you are a fan of modern roller-coasters,...More

The Cyclone is an old school wooden coaster. When riding it you hear and feel the history. The gravity on the first drops will make your heart race.

I am happy I dared but will not do it again. Is it safe? I found it scary. I would not recommend this attraction to people with neck or back issues. For the rest: line went fast, service friendly, 10USD is the correct price

Built in 1927 this wooden roller coaster is still amazing. It has a good amount of dips and was a good length. Ride is 10$ and the staff was very friendly and was focused on safety. This is a must if in Coney Island.

This iconic ride is worth the visit. Tickets are $10. We were there at the opening of the season, so there was no line so we went right on and sat in the back. For an old coaster, it still makes you laugh, smile, and...More
