Coney Island Cyclone Ride

Ride from Manhattan to the Coney Island Amusement Park. Riders should get there just in time for the fireworks! This is a casual ride at a relaxed pace.

Bring locks as riders plan to lock up and ride the rides. Bring money for food and amusements, and a swimsuit if you plan to hit the waves. Riders usually spend about an hour and a half in the park, on the beach (and in the water!), on the boardwalk, and at Nathan’s, and everyone has a GREAT time! Some people return on the subway, and others ride back at a faster pace.
