You can still make the trip to Coney Island this summer and enjoy what it has to offer. Cyclone, the famous roller coaster, kicks off its 2009 season on April 5th and the first 100 people in line will be treated to a free ride. The opening day festivities begin at noon with Miss Cyclone and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz breaking a bottle of authentic Brooklyn chocolate egg cream against the coaster’s lead car. After riding on the coaster, maybe stop by the beach or visit the aquarium (it’s still there!).
