Cyclone looks absolutely fantastic with new paint! It's so clean it almost looks like a model rollercoaster.

If the donkey is rockin, don't come knockin!

Want to be riding a coaster as the clock strikes midnight to ring in the new year? You can do that this year at Luna Park, weather permitting:

Borough President Adams announced that the Abe Stark Rink, B&B Carousell, Deno’s Wonder Wheel, and Thunderbolt roller coaster will be open and free of charge throughout New Year’s Eve and into New Year’s Day; there will be details revealed in the coming days regarding further additions.


Full story and details here:

^Good find, but I'm a little confused. The article references the rides being free but at the end of the article it states that 50% of tickets sales will be donated.

I don't know when Deno's usually puts their cars back on the Wonder Wheel, but it seems like a big undertaking to add them but on this early unless they are planning to keep them on through the rest of the "winter".

As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

I love this trend of more and more parks running coasters in the winter. Screw you winter, after the last few years we're tired of your crap and we're not participating anymore.
