This is going to spoil everyone who is used to the smoothness of the Coney Island Cyclone or a Zamperla coaster.

Before the new coaster at Luna Park opens, it seems as if Deno's Wonder Wheel Park is getting a brand new custom Vekoma suspended family coaster for the 2021 season! From the article on USA Today;

They are. Dragon Flier at Dollywood is butter smooth. No OTSRs, just a lapbar in a comfortable bucket seat. He's saying the Zamperlas are janky (not going to disagree there) and the Cyclone (which has

As you can somewhat see (I didn't take a great photo I know) You can somewhat see some rides that are going to come this season.

 

As confirmed: Water Mania will be replaced with a pirate ship attraction named "Coney Clipper"

Power Surge Is no longer there

Magic Bikes will now be in the back of the park

A new interactive ride will be in front of the park

And behind Endeavor will be a drop tower, the name will be "Astrotower as a homage to the original Astrotower

 

You can see the new park map when coming in from the boardwalk

With the $5 wristbands, the park got pretty busy today. I'll take the added crowds in exchange for unlimited Cyclone rides and saving some cash.

 

We arrived around 2 and only had to wait about 15 minutes for the Thunderbolt. I know the ride isn't well liked here, but I really like it. It still shuffles a bit, but it isn't rough and has a nice combination of airtime and hang time. When we returned arojnd 5:30 to reride it, the queue was full and stretched all the way back to the water.

 

The Scream Zone was busy. It was hard to skip the Slingshot since the ride was included, but I saw about 75-100 people in line for a ride with a capacity of 2 people. We waited about 40 minutes for Steeplechase. We skipped Soarin' Eagle but it appeared to have equally as long of a wait.

 

The main area was a madhouse. People were shoulder to shoulder everywhere and the line to buy tickets stretched down the boardwalk. We skipped this area.

 

The Cyclone was the star as usual. It was nice to be able to reride it without having to shell out cash each time. Even with the queue spilling out into the street, it didn't take more than a half hour. All but one of our rides were in the back car and the coaster was running incredibly well. There wasn't a single rough spot and the airtime was terrifyingly awesome.

 

The one thing I found deceptive was the lack of advertising by the Cyclone about the $5 wristband. Many people were just buying $10 Cyclone tickets instead.

I've just seen the full park map, and if the drawing is anything to go by, you guys are in for a treat. Astro Tower will be a Zamperla Flash Tower, and these things are ejector airtime machines!

Check it out guys. The advertisement for the Astrotower, it's gonna be $7 to ride and its high thrill. If you're wondering why isn't Endeavor running, it's because of the construction for the Astrotower

That makes sense. I was wondering why it was down opening weekend when everything else was open. Looking forward to trying out one of these Flash Towers someday since they look quite a bit better than that old one at the WWE Niagara.

^^^That retro, throwback advertisement is fantastic. I'd love to see more imagery like that around the park or even on merchandise. It's still a bit trippy to see the Astro Tower name reused.

Ok so I rode the Astrotower for the first time and I got to say it was fun, wasn't much of a drop, it was really, coney clipper was fun too, a lil high but fun, all other ride was great to, Thunderbolt was rough, and my seatbelt came undone during the air hump was I was holding on tight AF, the light was beautiful though, Zenobio was amazing as always. Even though Luna Park is great for hours of fun, I DO NOT recommend working for them

Spent some hours out at Coney yesterday, mainly to check out the aquarium's new shark exhibit in the morning. We didn't do too much in the way of rides since the weather was absolutely sweltering but the kiddo and I did get a chance to ride the new Astrotower. This ride is pretty much all about the view. You get an awesome view of the beach, boardwalk, and parks as the entire tower rotates around. As far as the drop goes... this has to be the first drop tower I've ever been on that has no "drop tower" feeling. It felt like someone had their foot on the brake the entire time. You got a couple bounces which was the only point at which you felt any g-forces whatsoever, and then the entire program repeated a second time.

 

If you're willing to part with 7 credits just for the view, then by all means, go for it, but if you're looking for thrills, skip this one.

I agree with Chris. I rode the tower last week and it's a very dull experience. It's more like the Kissing Tower with a couple of bounces than an actual drop tower.
