After the years long drama surrounding Coney Island’s seafront real estate with all the closures, controversy, proposals and buyouts, the story has finally been bookended with the opening of the new Luna Park. The park is operated by Zamperla and contains 19 rides including Electro Spin, a Disk-O; Brooklyn Flyer, a Sky Flyer type ride; and Air Race, making its world debut at Luna.
Next season Zamperla will open the second phase of their plan, a thrill park containing two roller coasters, go-karts and the speculated Slingshot ride as posted here previously.
The park will be open daily up until Labor Day, at which point it’ll operate on a weekend only schedule. There is no charge for admission with rides being on a pay-per-ride basis; pay one price wristbands are also offered. For more information check out Luna Park’s website.
