A Confession...

I have to own up to this, out loud and in public: I've never been on the Cyclone. Not that I have anything against roller coasters, nothing of the sort. I love roller coasters. In fact, the last time I was at Disney World I made a special early-morning trek to get an extra run on Space Mountain before coming back to New York. Of course, the last time I was at Disney World was fourteen years ago, and it was the last time I was on a roller coaster, for that matter. And the last time I was on a roller coaster before that was also on Space Mountain, but in Disneyland. In, let's see..1980. Okay, so I haven't been on a roller coaster in a while.

But I will get on the Cyclone this summer, and I may even get on the Wonder Wheel, the other major Coney Island icon that I've managed to miss out on for my forty-seven years....

Shooting the Freak

July 2007

Despite the signs, despite the crowds, and despite the barker's pleas, very few people actually step up and
do shoot the freak. Mostly, it seems, they stand around hoping someone else will pony up the three bucks for five paintballs.

Could it be because, after being here for four years already, there still aren't any prizes?
