Coney Island Gets 4 New Thrill Rides in 2011

Soaring Eagle, a Vertical Roller Coaster. Trill seekers will have a love-hate relationship with the Soarin' Eagle, given the terrifying, awesome drop in this compact roller coaster. It's the second new roller coaster in Coney's Scream Zone opened in 2011 in a redeveloped Coney Island Amusement Park in Brooklyn, NY.

The Steeplechase starts with a jolting burst of speed and has enough steep banks and other surprises in it to make you shout “Whoa, Nelly” a few times. It’s a perfectly respectable coaster
====================================================================================================
Sling Shot, and that is basically what it does — slingshot two people at a time 150 feet in the air at 90 miles an hour (or so the Scream Zone’s Web site says; it felt more like 1,500 feet at the speed of light).
=================================================================================================

Zenobio sends you high in the air, but you’re in a basket on the end of a long spoke, and there appeared to be far too much somersaulting included for respectable people to tolerate.
