CI Cyclone & Conneaut Blue Streak
I'm considering making Coney Island one of the stops on my coaster trip in August. Could anyone tell me how smooth or rough the Cyclone is? I rode the Georgia Cyclone a few years ago, and it was too rough for me to enjoy.
It sounds like this summer may be our last chance to ride the Conneaut Lake Blue Streak. I'd be interested in knowing what your opinion of it is. In light of the problems the park has had, is it safe to ride it?
That was several years ago. I'm hearing it is quite a bit smoother now. Will have to take a ride up there and find out for myself.
The Conneaut Blue Streak is a great old coaster. I really enjoyed my rides on it.
From what I've heard, Cyclone is not the same ride anymore. GCI has been doing repair work since the 2011 off season. It's been smoothed out considerably. I should be getting to it some time this summer.
Conneaut Blue Streak should be considered a MUST this season as the future is very murky right now. Not only is it perfectly safe, it's very well-maintained. It even got new track work done this off season.
On top of that - it's a great ride!
