One of the best wooden rollercoasters I've ever been on!  The Cyclone at Coney Island was built in 1927 and it's definitely held up well.  I was surprised at how fast and intense the drops and turns were.  Very awesome thrill ride.  Only part that was sad was the price which was $8 for the first ride and $5 for a reride.  Big jump from 25 cents a ride when it first opend in the 1920s.  Still loved the ride tho.  Definitely a must do at Coney Island.  It's one of the classics.
