    Scariest coaster ever. Feels like it might fall apart any minute. But that's why it's so fun.

    Wooden roller coasters are a fantastic experience, and this one is no exception! Ride an attraction your grandparents rode as kids, and experience a thrill that hasn't decreased with age!

    For some reason I tend to be more photogenic on rollercoasters.

    A must-do for all New Yorkers. If at all positive, though, avoid the back cars... genuinely painful and rocky.

    Not 100% sure, but I think the person at the bag check took my credit card number. Got a call an hour later about a fraudulent charge & don't think it could've happened anywhere else. Fun ride though.

    The Cyclone was originally built in 1927. The coaster uses a chain to pull the train to the top of the 1st plunge, it then runs on its own momentum reaching up to 68 mph through 9 drops and 6 curves.

    I thought I was scared only because it was so old and rickety. But that was one wild ride! Sit in the front!
  • NYC: The Official Guide
    Riding in the front car affords riders the best view, while sitting in the rear gives the feeling of greater speed.

    I wasn't scared per se, but it really jolted me around, and was painful in the back and neck. Still fun though!
