CYCLONE CYCLES

News

After yet another breakdown for the second time so far this year, a group of passengers had to descend and walk from the top of "Cyclone" roller coaster in Coney Island, NYC.

Several people slowly climbed down the wooden structure after the train they were traveling in stopped at one of the highest parts of the route.

No injuries were reported and several passengers later explained to local media they heard a loud pop before the vehicle stopped.

This is the second incident for the 88 year old roller coaster, so far this year. On March 29 a dozen passengers had to descend with the help of emergency personnel from the top of the structure, where this infamous ride was also trapped.
