The 16th Oldest Roller Coaster In the World
There's only one 16th oldest roller coaster in the world, and that bad boy is right here in Brooklyn. That's right, I'm talking about the Cyclone in Coney Island. And while "16th oldest" might not sound like much of a superlative, keep in mind that the Cyclone has been around since 1927, which means that when you go on it, you are basically putting your fate in the hands of something that, if it were human, would statistically, probably be dead. Plus, while the Wonder Wheel is technically older, it doesn't feel on the verge of collapse the way the Cyclone does. Riding this particular wooden coaster is definitely something that you can only do in Brooklyn.
