Luna Park on Coney Island
Luna Park is has a great selection of rides from mild to wild
The present day Luna park on Coney Island is a brand new resurrection of the original Luna park that operated from 1903 through 1944 when it was destroyed by pair of fires. The name of the park is Latin for moon and and is derived from the extremely popular ride called "A Trip to the Moon" that was a mainstay of the original park.
Today's Luna Park offers a selection of 21 different rides ranging from mild to wild including the famous and historic Cyclone rollercoaster and the brand new (2011) Scream Zone all combining to provide excitement and adventure for the entire family. Neighbouring Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park, a separate attraction which has many rides suited to young children, expands your choices.
There are a number of food concessions in the park where you can find burgers, hotdogs, salads, sushi, BBQ and more. Nathan's hotdogs are a must try treat.
Cost: You purchase a Luna Card with credits to pay for the rides. The more credits you buy the lower the price per ride. From Monday to Thursday you can also purchase a 4 hour unlimited ride pass. See their official website for up to day pricing.
Hours: Open daily from June to September with some open days in April May and October. See their website for exact hours and days.
