Astroland lives on Cyclone

Astroland Amusement Park is gone, but the storied name will still be one of the last things riders on the Cyclone roller-coaster see before plummeting 85-feet to the street this summer.

The familiar Astroland sign — a fixture on top of the Cyclone for over 25 years — is now being outfitted with new light bulbs that operators say will be brighter than ever. Additionally, “Astroland” is featured prominently on the front cars of the coaster.

“The Astroland name is alive,” Cyclones operator and former Astroland Amusement Park owner Carol Albert said.

A new Coney Island amusement park dubbed “Luna Park” will debut on the former Astroland site on May 29.
