Do a barrel roll: Ride Coney Island’s Air Race for free Sunday

Word of advice: Do NOT stuff yourself with jalapeno poppers before riding

Will the Cyclone always be king of the rides at Coney Island? A-doy, it’s only a goddamn landmark. That doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of other puke-delivery systems good rides on Coney Island. The only problem? You have to pay for them. Bummer we know. What’s the deal with these people and wanting fiat currency in exchange for services? Well, this Sunday, you can avoid all that on at least one ride, Luna Park’s dipping, diving and spinning Air Race.

Luna Park employees will be in a tent next to the plane-based thrill ride taking people’s email addresses for the Luna Park newsletter. And what do you get in exchange for your email address? A Luna Park card good for a free ride on the Air Race. They’ll be giving them out between noon and 3pm to the first 500 brave souls to sign up. Considering the usual reward for giving strangers your email address is being added to the Official KKK Newsletter of Beulah, Mississippi, it seems like a good deal to us. Why is Luna Park doing this? Well, look, we’re not going to say it’s part of a pagan ritual to summon summer faster, but we’re not NOT going to say that either.
