A hair raising tourist trap
Oct 2019
Yes, it is a tourist trap for visitors going to Coney Island. This was my first time on the Cyclone and will be my last. If you have kids it is fun, but my friends and I did not enjoy it

Scary Wooden Roller Coaster
Nov 2019
This is by far one of the scariest and loudest sounding wooden roller coaster in the borough of Brooklyn. If you like wooden coasters, this is an excellent coaster to ride.

Old RollerCoaster
Jun 2019
I love visiting Coney Island and seeing all the new attractions going up but the Cyclone is the oldest one around. This ride is fun but scary...it still has a lot of the old parts. If you wear glasses I suggest taking it off before the ride..I almost lost mine with the sharp turns it has. But overall a great ride.

Exciting Classic
Jun 2019
While looking at the Cyclone you might think this could be terrifying but once you're on this classic wooden ride, you're transported to a beautiful view of Brooklyn at its finest. Take that chance and experience the scenery.

Classic!
Oct 2019
The Cyclone is a coaster for nostalgic coaster fans, for sure. It's a legend. For my 14 year old son and I it also had the thrill of feeling a little rickety. On the way up the first incline I made sure to point out to him the tracks were not exactly straight or level. I also suggested some of the track may be held together with duct tape (which provoked the desired response). The last time we were in Coney Island he was not tall enough to ride but we made up for it this time and rode a few times. This is a "must do" activity while in Coney Island, for sure.

It is a 92 year old beloved roller coaster that is just fun to ride! We took my parents as well so good for all ages for the most part! Love the classic feel of it and well organized to keep the line moving!

AWESOME!
Oct 2019
Since I was a child The Cyclone has offered a few moments of pure fright and exhilaration. It never fails to deliver the ride of your life. I will return until I'm too old and feeble to get on. Don't miss it. And eat at Nathan's after, not before, you ride. WHEEEEEEE!

OK
Oct 2018
This relic of a roller coaster is fun but it really can’t compare with some of the newer versions. Just OK
