Name The New Adventureland Coaster



After 23 years, Adventureland is retiring The Hurricane and bringing in a new custom spinning coaster for the 2015 season. A contest is currently being hosted for the name of the new coaster. Until Sept. 1, you can choose from five preselected names on their website or add a suggestion of your own. The winner will be selected in a random drawing from among those who vote for the winning name, and will receive a three-year season pass.

The new ride will be the tallest and fastest coaster in Adventureland history, and the only spinning coaster on Long Island. It will also be more family friendly than previous coasters, as children as small as 42″ can ride with an adult. The amusement park is also hosting a contest for the last ride on the Hurricane, in order to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Nassau Suffolk Services for Autism. The top six donors per charity are guaranteed a seat. To enter either contest and view the official guidelines, visit
