Get the rollercoaster back on track: What Coney Island needs from the city and state
“The Zamperla family, with its company Central Amusement International Inc. (CAI), developed Luna Park in Coney Island in the Amusement District in 2010 as part of Mayor Bloomberg’s 2009 development plan. CAI investments include preserving, updating, and maintaining the City’s iconic landmarks, such as the Coney Island Cyclone, Parachute Jump, and B&B Carousell, and their new attractions and expansions, which draw millions of visitors from around the world while creating, construction activity and much needed permanent and seasonal jobs in the Amusement District.”
Here’s what it could look like when Coney Island reopens
“We are working diligently behind the scenes to address the realities of a post COVID-19 world and to ensure that Luna Park in Coney Island is ready when New York State and the City of New York directives allow amusement parks to open,” the park said in a statement.
The means, when it does open, it will be operating at reduced capacity and requiring employees and visitors to wear face coverings. All surfaces will be disinfected often and hand sanitizer dispensers will be added around the area. Of course, social distancing will be enforced, too.
“We are also evaluating new and enhanced safety measures to decrease the chance of virus spread at our amusement park,” its officials said. “While there are many uncertainties surrounding the 2020 season and many of our decisions will depend on government directives and cooperation, we remain committed to our guests, team members, and community and we are working hard to make sure that when we open, we will be able to create memorable experiences for everyone in a safe, clean, and fun environment.” –TIME OUT NEW YORK
Coney Island’s Luna Park announces name of newest attraction
“Luna Park officials joined community partners from the Coney Island YMCA Thursday to announce the Ropes Course attraction.
Children of the YMCA in Coney Island selected the highly-anticipated attraction’s name during a contest in late 2019.
During the announcement, Luna Park also donated $15,000 to benefit the YMCA and its ongoing initiatives to promote health and wellness within the local community.” –PIX11
