Coney Island and Lunar Park

The history of the wooden roller coaster that could and did goes back to 1927. As the boardwalk and park around it have grown and changed so has the neighborhood surrounding it. Whether you’re looking to spend time in the sun or cool off in the water, you’ll be treated to a bucket of fun in the sun. While you’re here don’t forget to stop in at the original location of Nathan’s Famous hot dogs.
