The Tornado (formerly known as Bobs) was a roller coaster located at Coney Island along Bowery Street in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. Designed by Fred Church and built by the L. A. Thompson Company, the roller coaster cost $250,000 to build and opened in 1926. Much like the neighboring Coney Island Cyclone, it was a hybrid design consisting of a wooden track and steel structure.
In 1977, much of the coaster was damaged by arson and the coaster was completely demolished in April 1978.
