One Of The World’s Oldest Wooden Roller Coasters Turns 85

The world famous Cyclone roller coaster on New York’s Coney Island turned 85 years old on Saturday (6/30). To celebrate, the usual $8 ticket price was rolled back to just 25 cents – the price it cost to ride when it made it’s first run in 1927!

The Cyclone is one of the oldest wooden roller coasters in the country. The ride tracks span 2,640 feet, reaching the highest peak at 85 feet, and then plunging down at 60 miles per hour.

Check out this video of the Cyclone and take a ride from the front seat!
