NYC seeking new Cyclone operator

Posted Wednesday, October 6, 2010 12:04 PM | Contributed by Tekwardo

Longtime Coney Island Cyclone operator Carol Albert is giving up her current contract to run the coaster, and the city is looking for another outfit to give it longer hours and a longer season. Albert said she might bid on the city's contract but said she's giving up her current lease because the ride hasn't made money since her Astroland amusement park closed in 2008.

I don't know what to make of Carol Albert. All I remember is her taking a bunch of money to sell her land and then complaining she wasn't offered a lease to her liking and the general decline of Coney Island. If she wanted to keep the land and ensure Coney Island remained the way it was, why did she sell it to a developer in the first place?

I won't pretend to know the specifics of the situation but considering what a ride on the coaster costs, I have a hard time believing it's not making any money.
