CRAP !!
Although Coney Island's amusement park has been home, at one time or another, to over 50 coasters, including the world-famous Cyclone, the French have bragging rights to the first true roller coaster.
The oldest roller coasters descended from the so-called "Russian Mountains," which were specially constructed hills of ice located especially around Saint Petersburg, Russia. Built in the 17th century, the slides were built to a height of between 70 feet (21 m) and 80 feet (24 m), consisted of a 50 degree drop, and were reinforced by wooden supports.
Most historians believe that the first true roller coaster was built by the French. The Les Montagnes Russes ŗ Belleville (The Russian Mountains of Belleville) constructed in Paris in 1812 and the Promenades Aeriennes both featured wheeled cars securely locked to the track, guide rails to keep them on course, and higher speeds. The first loop track was probably also built in Paris from an English design in 1846, with a single-person wheeled sled running through a 13-foot (4 m) diameter vertical loop.
