    The Cyclone is a New York City landmark It’s an old wooden roller coaster from the 1920’s. This is something everyone should try to do before they die.

    The Cyclone was originally built in 1927. The coaster uses a chain to pull the train to the top of the 1st plunge, it then runs on its own momentum reaching up to 68 mph through 9 drops and 6 curves.

    Wooden roller coasters are a fantastic experience, and this one is no exception! Ride an attraction your grandparents rode as kids, and experience a thrill that hasn't decreased with age!

    The Cyclone is a landmark & a wood rollercoaster. Beware, your neck may ache when you get off the ride.

    Truly, one of the best, and still scariest roller coasters EVER! Sit in the back for the wildest whiplash! Discounts for staying on for a second, or third ride.

    Be ready with your most ridiculous face: the camera is at the bottom of the first drop.

    A must-do for all New Yorkers. If at all positive, though, avoid the back cars... genuinely painful and rocky.

    Here's a great tip in the off-season - come by Coney Island on a very foggy or snowy day, and have a private photo-shoot with your favorite coaster!

    Scariest coaster ever. Feels like it might fall apart any minute. But that's why it's so fun.

    Riding in the front car affords riders the best view, while sitting in the rear gives the feeling of greater speed.

    I wasn't scared per se, but it really jolted me around, and was painful in the back and neck. Still fun though!
