$250M....and a Chance Aviator is a "marquee ride". Not even the Coney Island *barkers* of old could upsell THAT much...LOL!

Same here. But it's nice that a park is going in there instead of a bunch of condos/stores/etc.

The thumbnail seems to suggest that the coaster will be a Maurer Söhne extended Sky Loop.

I want to know who will operate the Cyclone during construction? I agree good to see a park going back at Cony Island.
