With the Summer of 2010 having made room for autumn, I wanted to share with you some thrilling images of my Labor Day Weekend visit to Coney Island in Brooklyn. While they've made many changes to the boardwalk and the attractions there, the experience still retains the charm of years past, and yes, the The Cyclone still stands just as it has since 1927 rocking and rolling along its wooden peaks and valleys.
Now I had ridden The Cyclone many years ago and assured Veli, who had never been on a roller coaster before, that it was a piece of cake. Remember, I practically grew up in an amusement park in Kansas City, and for me, the scarier the coaster the better.
The sign in the entrance seemed slightly more alarming than I remember, but in a matter of seconds we would be twisting and serving along the ocean skyline. Good thing I left my wig at home!
