World's Strangest Places to Get Married
A Roller Coaster
Why: Prepare yourself for the ups and downs of married life.
York’s Coney Island is beloved for its foot-long hot dogs,
two-and-a-half-mile boardwalk, and 83-year-old wooden Cyclone, one of the
world’s most famous roller coasters. Each year, a handful of nostalgic New
Yorkers and/or coaster enthusiasts get hitched on this scream-inducing,
knee-knocking ride. Marriages here are distinctly DIY, but usually the ceremony
is conducted at the boarding platform, with the wedding party crammed into the
12 tiny cars, followed by the newlyweds’ first spin on the Cyclone. Afterward,
revelers feast on funnel cakes.
Price Tag: $8 ticket to ride, per attendee.
