    The last time I rode this rickety wooden monstrosity was many years ago...but for a roller-coaster not as high, fast, or full of loop da loops as most of today's modern rides I still remember screaming like girl...yet the feeling of thrills vs chills....then going back on again...and screaming like a girl some more!

    An old school wooden rollercoaster in an old time Coney Island amusement park. Anyone who likes coasters should ride the Cyclone at least once. While there join in the scene and imagine what it must have been like in its heyday.

    DO NOT GO if you have a soar back. They write it, but only after you enter. This old rollercoaster might be an American icon, but the course is very rough and bumpy, which really strains the back and neck.
