Hold on to your lunches.
The iconic Cyclone roller coaster at Astroland Amusement Park in Coney Island will re-open for another season of nerve-unraveling excitement on Sunday, April 4.
Cyclone neophytes, presumably children who are 54-inches tall - the coaster’s minimum height requirement - will be allowed to ride for free beginning at noon on Sunday.
Other highlights of the day will include an egg-cream christening of the coaster by Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz at 11:30 am, a performance by the Hungry March Band and face-painters.
Beginning Sunday, Astroland Amusement Park will open at noon, on weekends only, until mid-June, when they’ll be open daily, noon to midnight. The Cyclone is located at Surf Avenue at West 10th Street. Tickets to ride the Cyclone are $5, and $4 for re-ride tickets. For more information, call (718) 265-2100 or visit www.astroland.com.
