Coney Island’s opening day marks the 95th anniversary of the Cyclone roller coaster

It’s only April, but it’s already feeling like summer in Coney Island.

The fabled fun district kicked off the 2022 season on Saturday, as intrepid guests screamed their lungs out, rode the world-famous Cyclone roller coaster and spun like tops on other rides at Luna Park.

They were joined by showmen on stilts and other freaks and geeks who made Coney Island famous. The Cyclone’s annual egg custard christening was also held, marking the 95th birthday of the roller coaster’s landmark. A portion of the park’s proceeds will be donated to local charities on Saturday.
