Yeahhhhh, which is why if anything I'm planning on checking it out on Sunday. Can't pay me to get over there tomorrow. :lol:

My favorite thing about tomorrow (if it's the same as last year) is the fact they'll sell you the wristband for the usual $70 price unless you mention the free promotion.

Curious question. Is the Coney Island Cyclone as large rider friendly as other wooden coasters are (I rode all the knoebels coasters in October). I am going to be in NYC in May and was considering checking out Luna Park or the Coney Island area in general just to see it.

^^ You have a ton of clearance between your legs and the lap bar. It's a single position one. However, I remember larger riders finding it a bit uncomfortable when the bar pressed into their stomach.

I haven't ever seen anyone denied though since the ops at Coney throw the bar down so quickly and forcefully they'll get it to close.

Tall with broad shoulders but I should be slightly smaller by then!

If you are very large in the hips and/or stomach, size is a problem.

I saw someone almost get the walk of shame once, but did the whole butt-back-chest-forward thing to get it to settle against his thighs.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Check out Luna Park's new ride! This looks like a great replacement for Air Race.
