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.
