on the wonder wheel | coney island

Whenever we get on the Wonder Wheel, we always hop in the swinging car. It has to be the swinging car. Otherwise there’s just no point, in my opinion.

My friend Jen is never too enthused about it, but I always manage to talk her into it pretty easily. It may not look like it, but she’s having fun.

No really, she is! She told me so!

The Wonder Wheel is one of my favorite rides, partly because of the swing factor, partly due to nostalgia. The Cyclone will forever have a place in my heart, but I’m not sure how long I can keep going on a coaster that seems to be getting rougher and more rickety every year. A sure sign that I’m officially old! Or wise, depending on how you look at it.

And yes, Jen made it out in one piece.
