The ride you're describing sounds like the Virginia Reel which I went on only once because I got sick to my stomach once I got off. Never again. I did go on the Parachute, but only once, for it closed shortly thereafter. It was quite a thrill and the panoramic view was sensational. I've heard that many people want it reopened, but that legal and insurance issues make it prohibitive. If you or any one hears that it will reopen, please post. One of my favorite and exciting rides in Coney besides the "woodie" Cyclone is the Wonder Wheel which is a combo ferris wheel-roller coaster. The center cars roll and swing out, so much so that I feels like you're going to fly off into the Atlantic Ocean.
