Coney Island has been a go to spot for generations, each season changing slightly, adding more rides, keeping new and fresh while still appealing to the crowds of New York.


This season is no different, with a new ride open now (The Thunderbolt) and more on the way including a new roller coaster the fun keeps coming.


Coney Island is made up of something for everyone.  Just steps from the boardwalk, there is a beach with a clean shore and big open ocean.  For the animal lovers, there is the New York Aquarium just a little ways down, which also has a wonderful seal show that should not be missed.  For the adventurous types, there are big thrill rides at Luna Park which include 7 roller coasters like the classic wooden Coney Island Cyclone.  For the littler park goers, there are tons of attractions and rides at Luna Park like the Happy Swing and Magic Bikes.  For everyone, there is Deno’s Wonder Wheel, one of the biggest and most complex Ferris Wheels around.


There are a ton of little kid rides at Deno’s, as well as some carnival classics like the Scrambler, a haunted ride, and bumper cars.  For the sports fans, within walking distance to all the fun is a MCU Park where the Coney Island Cyclones play (a minor league Mets team).  There are also tons of fun shops and restaurants in the area like Nathans hot dogs on the board walk and seafood restaurants.  Of course, there is also a wonderful old carousel which is in incredible shape, and should not be missed- right next door to MCU park.  Next time you are looking for a fun way to spend a nice Spring or summer day be sure to look in your own backyard, in nearby Coney Island for some family fun for everyone.
