The Corner of Cyclone and Surf


The Cyclone roller coaster. That’s a wood structure roller coaster we’re looking at. As the cars move, the frightening creaking sounds in the structure are half the fun.

  2. Thanks yesb.
    It’s the quality Nikor glass and the bracketed exposures allowing for the blending of various light levels. There’s no way one could get this capture in a single shot.

  3. The cyclone is a protected monument owned by the city of new york, right? The cyclone will never be torn down correct?
