Day Trips for the Brooklyn-Based Roller Coaster Enthusiast
By Lauren Beck
Sure, there’s this.
You have everything at your fingertips living in Brooklyn, except for when it comes to one thing, and one thing only. In pursuit of adrenaline-pumping thrills involving mini carts on wheels and a deep trust in gravity, our options are essentially reduced to the Cyclone. With all due respect to Coney Island (visits come very much recommended), sometimes that pile of matchsticks isn’t cutting it on the thrill factor. Until steel coaster hell-raiser Thunderbolt opens in Luna Park next summer, we offer up a few day trips with key roller coasters called out for optimum non-drug related highs. You’ve got at least a good month of summer in front of you, lest your forget.
