Nothing offers a thrilling jolt of Brooklyn nostalgia quite like a ride on the Cyclone. The roller coaster dates to 1927, when Coney Island was a booming seaside resort, but shuttered for six years starting in 1969, marking one of many troubled economic periods for the ’hood. Thankfully, in 1975, the Astroland theme park took control over the wooden roller coaster and saved it from demolition. It was declared a city landmark in 1988 and a National Historic Landmark in 1991, and is now part of Coney's new Luna Park theme park.

The Cyclone is an iconic Brooklyn legend and for good reason, It's actually a very good roller coaster. i inspire when i visit it with my http://www.getbustours.com/10day-yellowstone-mt-rushmore-arches-yosemite-tour.html. The cyclone has a very compact and intense layout, you really feel like your hitting those drops and curves at a high speed. It's starts off with a very steep drop and doesn't lose energy until the ride is over. It's a little bumpy but not as bad as I expected with it being around 90 years old.

I have been visited that place about a few months ago with my family. It is a historic wooden roller coaster, that opened on June 26, 1927 in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn, New York City.
