^So, I was half-right. :lol:

It's a very good, old-style dark ride.

After only having ridden one, I think the main reason I didn't like it was how claustrophobic it made me feel.

^Yes, the experience is like flying around in your own cozy little prison cell.

^ That's...the perfect explanation. I'll have to steal that from you. ;)

I was surprised by ALL of the Zamperla coasters at Coney Island. They all ran better than the others I've ridden. Great TR!

I really enjoyed our visit to Coney Island. I wasn't sure what to expect but really enjoyed it. Just seems from what I've been told that the area has really cleaned up. Cyclone was running great except for one little spot. I want to go back to NYC.

Ha! THIS!!

It's a shame to hear that even the new ones are still pretty bad, I guess when you're in that position you feel every bump no matter how new the ride!

Well, Zamperla does run the park, I think. I do like their motorbike coasters.

Great report Chuck! Like Bob, I've never been to NY. Definitely need to stop by sometime and do the pizza tours as well!

Great coverage of Coney Island Chuck! I too am a fan of the Spook-a-Rama - one of my favourite memories of the North East Trip in '11. The next time I'm over there I must explore NY better.
