Cyclones To Salute Namesake Ride With Model Giveaway To Fans

The world famous Coney Island Cyclone, known for its thrilling drops and blazing speed, might have achieved landmark status 20 years ago, but it will truly be immortalized on Monday, when the Brooklyn Cyclones will offer a replica (shown below) of the legendary wooden roller coaster to the first 2,500 fans through the turnstiles for its 7 PM game against the Hudson Valley Renegades. Tickets are now available by phone at 718-507-TIXX, or online at www.brooklyncyclones.com.

"We are proud to have the Cyclone roller coaster celebrated by the Brooklyn Cyclones," said Astroland owner Carol Albert. "The Cyclone has long been the heart and soul of Coney Island and we are pleased to say that the Cyclones are too."

Cyclones General Manager Steve Cohen agreed, adding "Both Cyclones have grown to become part of Coney Island's identity, and fans will get the best of both worlds when they come to KeySpan Park on June 30th!"

More than 80 years have passed since the roller coaster's maiden journey, yet it remains a popular tourist attraction and consistently ranks among the top roller coasters in the country.

The team, whose namesake is borrowed from the neighboring ride, is proud to offer this and other special giveaways this season. For a full list of promotions, visit www.brooklyncyclones.com.
