    Coney Island visitors Thursday got a surprise when superstar singer Beyonce showed up to ride the historic Cyclone roller coaster.

    Police officers and private security detail were seen stationed near the park entrance, and a videographer left the park with her. 

    Beyonce was seen smiling and raising her arms as the coaster dipped, and fans screamed as they watched her.

    "I started freaking out because I'm in love with Beyonce," said Ella Sklaw of Brooklyn, a young fan.

    "It's very exciting," said Shawnette Duncan, also of Brooklyn. "She came to Brooklyn. Beyonce came to Brooklyn!"

    The singer left shortly after the ride was over, waving at fans before getting into her SUV.
