Coney Island opening day marks Cyclone roller coaster’s 95th birthday

It’s solely April but it surely already seems like summer season in Coney Island.

The fabled amusement district kicked off its 2022 season Saturday as intrepid patrons screamed their lungs out, rode the word-famous Cyclone curler coaster and spun like tops on different rides all through Luna Park.

They had been joined by carnie barkers on stilts and different freaks and geeks that make Coney Island well-known. The annual egg cream christening of the Cyclone was additionally held, marking the landmark coaster’s ninety fifth birthday. A few of the park’s proceeds Saturday will likely be donated to native charities.
