One of our many stops back home in Brooklyn was to Coney Island Astroland Park.
This nostalgic, family-friendly amusement park brought back so many childhood memories.
Home to The Cyclone, this New York City National Historic Landmark is listed in
the New York State Register of Historic Places. You may read the history
I remember coming here in the summer months as a child with my dad. My weekends
were filled with cotton candy, seafood and the kiddie roller coaster.
It was happiness for me as a five year old and as a teenager.
As I tried to catch a glimpse of the kiddie roller coaster to show my little one,
I noticed that it was gone. It was replaced with another ride but not from my memories.
They were testing the Soaring Eagle while we were walking around
eating Nathan's famous hot dogs. I wanted to ride it so bad, but had to
wait until the weekend when it was to open.
Like myself, my son loved it! He loves carnivals and amusement parks,
so this was a special treat for him.
This sign was pretty BIG and visible.
...need I say more! :)
