NEW YORK —

The Coney Island Cyclone broke down midride Saturday, forcing thrill-seekers to climb down the iconic roller coaster, the New York Post reports.

"It was a little scary," Levin said. "I mean, you look down and you’re pretty high up. And so it was a little bit scary. But at the end of the day … you know, I always wanted to go on the Cyclone. Some people had warned against it, and now I know why."

The ride also broke down March 29 with 12 riders on board, the Post said.
