Fodor's Review

This historic wooden roller coaster first thrilled riders in 1927 and it'll still make you scream. Anticipation builds as the cars slowly clack up to the first unforgettable 85-foot plunge–-and the look on your face is captured in photos that you can purchase at the end of the ride. The Cyclone may not have the speed or the twists and turns of more modern rides, but that's all part of its rickety charm. It's one of two New York City landmarks in Coney Island: the other is Deno's Wonder Wheel.
