NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Coney Island is getting its first new roller coaster since the Cyclone was built in 1927.
Move over Cyclone, here comes the Thunderbolt.
“It’s a steel coaster, much faster, much sophisticated and with a complete, nice, smooth experience,” Luna Park president Valerio Ferrari told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond on Tuesday. “The coaster’s going to be approximately 2,100 feet long. It’s going to have a vertical lift with stadium-like seating and it’s going to have a full reversal and a loop.”
