Coney Island, NY (AHN) -- A controversial new "thrill ride," has been added to New York's Coney Island, only it's not actually a ride, and most would agree, there is no "thrill" in waterboarding.

The store front attraction uses robots that look human to depict the act of waterboarding, a method of torture that gives the victim a feeling of drowning.
