Coney Pix: Cyclone Re-Tracking

I snapped some digi-pics on a trip this Sunday past down in Brooklyn... There's one, specifically showing the track work completed on the Cyclone's double dip after the 3rd fan turn...which should provide for a smoother brutality into the Surf Ave. Turn...

http://www.geocities.com/flaretime/Main.html Click the Coney Link to get there...

All in all, the midway is grungy as ever!!! So exciting...5 days until the world's GREATEST woodie begins pouncing victims for its 73th season... :-)

Nice shots there, Dave! Thanks for sharing them here. I love to see shots of the good old Cyclone. She is the Mother of all woodies.

Nice pics. I get wistful looking at the Thunderbolt, since that was my first big coaster experience (I'm really dating myself here). Sad to say, but I can't see it standing much longer, what with the minor league stadium/ sportsplex projects on the horizon in the immediate vicinity.
