Prices for Astroland POP?

Friday, July 4, 2003 3:42 PM
I was reading a trip report from 2001 for Astroland, and it said that the POP wristband was limited to 3 cyclone rides. I thought that I read on the astroland website that it was unlimited cyclone rides. So, which is it?

I believe you can buy a POP without Cyclone and a POP with Cyclone....

CCI Lives On!

IIRC, the difference in price for "with Cyclone POP" and "without Cyclone POP" was about 6, maybe 7 bucks. The signs at Coney said pretty specifically it was unlimited rides. Of course, the day we went, one ride *was* the limit...POP stood for *Pouring On the Parade*...and it did!

So how much does it cost for an individual ticket to ride The Cyclone these days?

Was just there the other day for a few rides. The first ride is always 5$. After it goes, you can re-ride for 4$. However, that 4$ may be negotiable, depending on crowds and such. One day, me and a few friends went on an empty afternoon, and the guy let us re-ride for a dollar each. We ended up taking 11 rides, but I couldn't handle any more than that in the back seat. Man, that thing throws you around.

According to Astroland's website ( - there is POP Mon - Thur in 2 seperate ride sessions (12-6 & 4-10) on Friday they only offer the 12-6 wristband.

17.99 w/o Cyclone

21.99 w/ Cyclone

There is no mention of a limitation on the number of Cyclone rides (as there had been in years past) but you can only ride the bumper cars twice.

Keep in mind that this is only good for Astroland rides and the Cyclone. Everything else at Coney Island is pay as you go.

All the best,
