Terms of the agreement between Thor Equities and the Albert family were not made public.

I guess this one last chance for anyone who wants to experience "old school" Astroland. I'm already thinking about taking a trip.

I get out there once a summer for my Cyclone fix. Really is old school stuff out there. "Shoot the Freak" is always intriguing. LOL Walking on the boardwalk on a hot summer day is always very nice. Watching the people walking enjoying the day and the park. I always make sure I get a good lunch at Nathan's at Coney Island also...the location of the 4th of July hot dog eating contest.

If you've never been to Coney Island, you might as well go next year before everything changes. Love it or loathe it, it's an experience not to be missed.

I am glad I made up to Coney for my first ever visit this year and now I will add it to my must visit for next season also.

Well, the procrastinators who didn't make it this year, get a reprieve. :) I made it for the first time this year for ACE's Preservation Confrence. I really had a good time.

I'll be sure to try and fit it in next summer, I've always wanted to go. I might just stop in on my way home from MA this weekend, not sure what would be open now though, maybe just to get a hot dog and walk the boards perhaps?
