LUNA PARK IN CONEY ISLAND NEWS RELEASE
BROOKLYN, NY, June 15, 2021 – The iconic amusement park, Luna Park in Coney Island, known for its high thrills and exhilarating attractions, has donated 10,000 wristbands to VAX4NYC, as part of the City’s effort to incentivize COVID-19 vaccinations.
New Yorkers who receive their first COVID-19 vaccine dose at a participating vaccination site can choose to get a unique bar code to redeem one Family Fun Wristband, and one ride on the Coney Island Cyclone Roller Coaster through the VAX4NYC Incentive Portal.
“We are proud to partner with the City of New York to further incentivize our local communities to get vaccinated,” said Alessandro Zamperla, President and CEO of Central Amusement International Inc. “As the public health conditions keep improving thanks to New Yorkers’ resilience and solidarity, we look forward to welcoming more guests having fun and making wonderful memories at Luna Park in Coney Island this summer.”
To redeem the complimentary wristbands, eligible guests can bring their email printout with their unique code to Luna Park in Coney Island’s guest services booth during operating hours on any weekday at least two hours before the park closes. The offer is not valid on weekends or holidays and is for one-time use.
Luna Park in Coney Island continues to celebrate and support NYC’s healthcare efforts in 2021 with donations to local healthcare heroes and donations to help incentivize New Yorkers to get vaccinated. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Luna Park in Coney Island was unable to hold their annual opening “Donation Day” where they offer free admission wristbands to the local community and raise money for local charities on opening day. After a COVID-19 initiated 18-month shut-down, the iconic location is finding alternative ways to safely give back to the local community with this year’s focus on health care and well-being.
Since the vaccine rollout began, New York City has administered more than 8.5 million COVID-19 vaccine doses. In May, the City launched its robust incentives program to continue to mobilize New Yorkers to get their life-saving COVID-19 vaccine.
