For those of you who have not had the pleasure of seeing your life flash before your eyes as you whip around at lighting speed on a 84 year old heap of creaking wood and rusted metal, watch the video below. Welcome to Coney Island. And yes, that is me screaming.
In case you are having trouble viewing the video click here.
The video doesn't do it justice. Its really thrilling ride despite its age (or maybe because of it.) Unlike the smooth polished and clearly safe rollercoasters found elsewhere, this ride makes you wonder who paid the insurance bill last. And that ultra creepy homemade 'remain seated' sign at the first drop is unbeatable for making you question your own judgement.
While we were there we made a couple of other stops including a spin on this new swing ride at Luna Park, a hotdog at Nathans and a roll around the Wonder Wheel. No better way to start the summer season in Brooklyn.
