Interview Date:


Robert Maxwell came with his wife to visit Coney Island from the town of Amsterdam in upstate New York. They drove down for the day to eat Nathan's hot dogs and ride The Cyclone. Robert estimates that has ridden The Cyclone at least 35-40 times since his first visit in the early 1990's. He describes why he likes riding in the front car best and a little about how he worked with his tattoo artist to design his tattoo. Riding The Cyclone is a fond memory Robert shares with his father who rode with him on his first visit to Coney Island.
