Wow that went up fast. Definitely interested to see what program is run on the tower since it should give some awesome views of NYC.

Ok so I rode the Astrotower for the first time and I got to say it was fun, wasn't much of a drop, it was really, coney clipper was fun too, a lil high but fun, all other ride was great to, Thunderbolt was rough, and my seatbelt came undone during the air hump was I was holding on tight AF, the light was beautiful though, Zenobio was amazing as always. Even though Luna Park is great for hours of fun, I DO NOT recommend working for them

Spent some hours out at Coney yesterday, mainly to check out the aquarium's new shark exhibit in the morning. We didn't do too much in the way of rides since the weather was absolutely sweltering but the kiddo and I did get a chance to ride the new Astrotower. This ride is pretty much all about the view. You get an awesome view of the beach, boardwalk, and parks as the entire tower rotates around. As far as the drop goes... this has to be the first drop tower I've ever been on that has no "drop tower" feeling. It felt like someone had their foot on the brake the entire time. You got a couple bounces which was the only point at which you felt any g-forces whatsoever, and then the entire program repeated a second time.

If you're willing to part with 7 credits just for the view, then by all means, go for it, but if you're looking for thrills, skip this one.

I agree with Chris. I rode the tower last week and it's a very dull experience. It's more like the Kissing Tower with a couple of bounces than an actual drop tower.
