Too bad they can't give it the Space Spiral treatment. That would be a fitting addition to the long list of publicity stunts that historically is Coney Island.

Sad day. I remember riding this as a child every summer. then playing on the beaches. Too bad they couldn't have done more to shore up the tower or retrofit part of it for a drop tower!
