Cyclone Opens for Another Season

Sunday, March 28, 2010

In another sign of Spring, the Cyclone roller coaster opens for another season Sunday. WNYC's Kathleen Horan reports.

REPORTER: The customary cracking of an egg cream on the first car of the coaster will usher in the 83rd season of the Cyclone. The Hungry Marching Band will provide the live soundtrack for the revelers taking the inaugural ride on the wooden-tracked coaster. By Memorial Day the boardwalk should be a bit more crowded when 19 new amusements are up and running. The new amusement zone will be named Luna Park after the Coney Island of old and operated by Central Amusement International. There's been a lot of empty land in the srea since Astroland Amusment Park closed 2 years ago. The former owner of Astroland is still in charge of operating the Cyclone.
