Astroland Amusement Park has closed to make way for developers, but fortunately the legendary Cyclone roller coaster still stands strong. The landmark (and wooden) ride may take a mere two-minutes-and-30 seconds to experience, but don’t let that fool you. Its 80-foot 60-degree jaw-dropping drop was described by Charles Lindbergh as "more thrilling than flying solo across the Atlantic."
