After lakemont park we drove the long and boring drive to brooklin to ride the coney island cyclone.

We arived just before it got dark out and found a parking spot a few blocks away from the park.

First stop...the cyclone.

There was something going on in the park, it looked like a skit from the show "cops".

I was impresed with the cyclone, I had heard horror stories about how ruff of a ride it was, but it was not bad at all.

After we left the park, we headed to our next 3 parks of the trip...Kennywood, Idlewild and darien lake. Trip reports to come soon.

Does anyone know what is going to happen to this ride?

I visited for the first time back in late March on spring break, but of course, it opened the week after, with most of the other east coast parks.

The Cyclone will be safe from whatever happens as it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places I believe. It also sits on a piece of land that is seperate from the Thor Equities property.
