This coaster's as old as your grandma!

Astroland closed its doors in 2008, but the Cyclone lives on. This famous coaster made its maiden voyage in 1927 and is still going strong. It's a surprisingly intense coaster, actually. I decided to ride it after a near-fainting experience on the subway and it definitely perked me right up...along with my lunch. If you can muster up the strength to pay $8 to ride a roller coaster, you should. It's not only a tough little coaster, but it's a classic, and riding it is like becoming a part of history.
