R5 Westchester 2013 Bucket List: Ride the Dragon Coaster

Playland’s rite of passage may not be at the top of any extreme thrill-seekers to-do list, but the wooden rollercoaster is every local tyke’s first taste of adrenaline and anticipation, and that’s good enough for us.

Sure, there are bigger, faster, and scarier roller coasters around—but not in our own backyard! Plus, to born-and-bred Westchesterites, a ride on Playland’s rickety wooden Dragon Coaster is a rite of passage, one we happily return to time and again.
Exit 19 off I-95, Rye
(914) 813-7000; ryeplayland.org
