Ups and downs, and all arounds

Magnet #49 - Cyclone, Coney Island, NY

So. I love roller coasters. Love them. You can take me, turn me upside down, run me backward, hairpin turn me, stand me up, sit me down, corkscrew the bejeepers out of me, and spin me round. What you can't do, is make me go up and down.

The Cyclone at Coney Island's Astroland makes you go up and makes you go down. And I have to say, I don't think I've really ever been more scared on a coaster.

Part of it was the ups and downs. A lot of it was the getting packed into the smallest coaster car ever. But most of it was the overall creakiness of the coaster celebrating its 80th anniversary.

Believe you me, it sounded every bit of its 80 years.
Pin It!
