Coney Island Cyclone Ride to the Fireworks!

The Cyclone Ride goes to Coney Island Amusement Park (Brooklyn) from Manhattan. Riders should get there just in time for fireworks! This is a casual ride at a relaxed pace.

Bring locks to lock up and ride the rides. Bring money for food and amusements, and a swimsuit if you plan to hit the waves. We 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.
