On Sunday, an amusement complex Luna Park celebrated its spring opening at Coney Island. As part of a promotion for the season opening, passengers got to ride free, and one of those rides included the historic Cyclone roller coaster!!
If you're thinking the words "historic" and "roller coaster" probably shouldn't be in the same sentence, you'd be right. Because 87-year-old wooden roller coaster got stuck near the top of the tracks — forcing riders to walk down the tracks to safety!!
A dozen riders boarded the three-car coaster (only at half of its 24 rider capacity) for its second trip of the day, and the car got stuck several feet from the

We've been living our lives thinking that Roller Coasters were the most thrilling options available at any given amusement park…
But we were wrong.
That's because there's apparently another type of ride called a Giga Coaster that is pretty much your classic coaster, just taller, faster, and much more intimidating.

Is it just us, or do amusement parks seem to be getting more dangerous?! Ha!
The Six Flags Great Adventure park in New Jersey got some extra publicity on Friday when their Nitro roller coaster broke down!
Luckily for the riders, they weren’t in a precarious position, and were able to walk down on the side of the tracks.
But they were still 230 feet up in the air!!!
Apparently, the ride just lost power, and thankfully no one was hurt as a result.
Even just watching the passengers walk down the stairs is giving us anxiety! You have to see it

One of the most fun things about riding a roller coaster is seeing your friends scream their heads off in terror.
But can you think of ANYONE you'd rather watch scream like a little girl than Kevin Hart??
Jimmy Fallon took the pint-sized comedian on Universal Orlando's Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket coaster, and lucky for us they filmed the whole thing!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see them face danger head on! Not to mention rude ride employees and… bugs???
