It’s only April but it already feels like summer in Coney Island.
The fabled amusement district kicked off its 2022 season Saturday as intrepid patrons screamed their lungs out, riding the word-famous Cyclone roller coaster and spinning like tops at other rides throughout Luna Park.
They were joined by carnie barkers on stilts and other freaks and geeks that make Coney Island famous. The annual egg cream christening of the Cyclone was also held, marking the landmark coaster’s 95th birthday. Some of the park’s proceeds Saturday will be donated to local charities.
