Deno's Wonder Wheel Park at Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York

After we all made it out of the Spook-A-Rama's darkness it was time to take the Wonder Wheel for a spin.

The Wonder Wheel has both kinds of cars.  Non swinging and...

...swinging.  You want to be in the line that says swinging.  Trust me, I know what I'm talking about.

The reason that you want to take the swinging cars over the non swinging ones is that the swinging ones combine a ferris wheel with a coaster.  As you can see in this picture of Paul you do not see the horizon.  Instead you see the ground as once the wheel turns far enough you slide down a rail into the wheels structure where you rock back, quite intensely.
