Let’s twist again like we did in 2006 with the Pontani Sisters–Angie, Helen and Tara! This fun video with music by Los Straitjackets publicized their Twist Party CD/DVD featuring tunes like “The Mad Scientwist” and “Peppermint Twist” and dance instructions by the go-go-booted Pontanis. The vid was shot on Coney Island Beach and in Astroland, where the sisters and the “Twistin Gorilla” go for a spin on Dante’s Inferno, the Bumper Cars and the Astrotower. Sideshow luminaries Todd Robbins and Dick Zigun play cameo roles.

Riding in the first car on the very first roller coaster ride of Coney Island’s 2010 season, Miss Cyclone Angie Pontani and Community Board 13 Member Todd Dobrin put their hands up and cheer! American Coaster Enthusiasts members and Cyclone fans Colleen Whyte and Bill Galvin are right behind them. Whyte and Galvin have ridden the Cyclone thousands of times and never miss an opening day. Definitely our fave photo from ATZ contributor and Coney Island resident Bruce Handy’s flickr set of Coney Island’s Opening Day of the 2010 Season. Hurray!
