Whether you are a native New Yorker or just a visitor of this beautiful state, you can’t miss the famous Luna Park located in historic Coney Island. Let us shine some light on the things you can do in Luna Park besides rides.
First things first, the scenery of Coney Island will put you in a very nostalgic mood. From the vintage architecture of some incredible stores, to the Parachute Jump, an iconic boardwalk that was recently declared a New York City Landmark and so much more. Besides the wow factor of Luna Park and thrill rides that we offer to our guests, we have plenty of delicious foods.
Who doesn’t like good food?
Just think about this, it’s a very hot summer day and nothing tastes better than freshly made gelato at Coney’s Cones, which is located on the boardwalk next to Luna Park with kiosks within the property. If you feel like grabbing a quick lunch or even dinner, we offer a variety of amazing foods here as well. Starting at Flywheel eats located across from the iconic Coney Island Cyclone where you can grab anything from ice-cold soda to our signature whac-a-burger, which isn’t complete without French fries and thick frosty shake. Next stop by The Half Moon Food Court, for boardwalk treats including cotton candy, funnel cakes and tangy nachos. If you love pizza, then you can’t miss Al Cavallino. Our pizza chefs straight from Italy use the freshest authentic ingredients to create pizza magic. Where else in NYC can you sit by the beach and enjoy a custom pizza and a beer?
For adults who like to go out with a bang, let us introduce you to Place To Beach – an ultimate party place where delicious drinks and urban music of Brooklyn clash into a beautiful mix. What could be better than a good swim in the summer heat and beautiful relaxation after? We would like to note that Place To Beach is open until the early morning, so the party never stops or as the Beastie Boys say – no sleep till’ Brooklyn!
The mermaid mural located by the entrance of Scream Zone is one of our most instagrammable places. If you are looking for colors to get the perfect shot for your Instagram, our thrill ride – Thunderbolt has every single color of the rainbow at night! You need to see it in person in order to get that “wow” moment, believe us when we say it’s worth it!
