The most amazing wooden roller coaster, the Cyclone, is turning 85 years old! What an icon. The coaster is as awesome as ever and still offering thrills and excitement to the new generations.
Thankfully due to a landmark status the Cyclone holds a place in not only NYC history but US history as well. It is a true piece of Americana.
With the overstimulation thanks to technology and more it is a pleasure to see people enjoying good wholesome fun. And the Cyclone is rather "low-tech" compared to the newer coasters. In my eyes there is not a better roller coaster anywhere in the world. There is just something about the Cyclone.
Happy 85th Cyclone! Here's to many many more memories.
And Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing women out there. My Mother's Day is already complete with our jaunt to Coney Island, USA.
