What’s the meaning of “Ride The Cyclone”?

It is a line from an American TV drama when a man saw a young boy after 5 years and said: Last time I saw you, you were too short to ride the Cyclone.

I searched on Google and it shows that ride a cyclone is a musical with music (I’m a non-American), and I was confused by the meaning of “ride”…

Can anyone give me some explanation about the whole line?


The “Cyclone” was, and still is, an amusement park ride at Coney Island, New York.


You have to be a certain height in order to ride it. The phrase means something like, “Last time I saw you, you were just a little kid.”
