There's a bit of a buzz on the Coney Island USA message board about the desire to bring the popular extreme thrill ride; The Slingshot to Coney Island. Frequent poster and publisher of YouGottaLoveConey.com has been in an e-mail discussion with the manager of Magical Midway park in Orlando, Florida.

I wrote to the manager of Magical Midway, the park I visited when doing the new Imagine Coney article on my website, to ask a few more questions about their rides. Instead, I got a letter back from the park's owner, who is also director of Funtime, the parent company who manufactures all the rides shown on new page, and along with answering my questions, revealed to me that....They have a SLINGSHOT that needs to be relocated after the end of this season!!
The Slingshot darts high into the sky and slings its daring riders up more than 70 meters in a flash of a second and continues bouncing and dangling them until they descend back down to normality...after recuperation of course. The ride would be the most expensive (from $20 and up) in Coney but it would sure command attention in Coney Island with its height and night display.
