The present day Luna park on Coney Island is a brand new resurrection of the original Luna park that operated from 1903 through 1944 when it was destroyed by a pair of fires. Today Luna Park offers a selection of 29 different rides ranging from mild to wild including the famous and historic Cyclone rollercoaster and a new rollercoaster called the Thunderbolt with speeds up to 55 mph and so many twist, turns, and drops that one feels like they are being swung about like a rag doll. The wide assortment of rides categorized as Extreme Thrill, High Thrill, Moderate Thrill and Mild Thrill will provide excitement and adventure for your entire family.
The name of the park is Latin for moon and and is derived from the extremely popular ride called "A Trip to the Moon" that was a mainstay of the original park. Neighbouring Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park, a separate attraction which has many rides suited to young children, expands your choices.
There are a number of food concessions in the park where you can find burgers, hotdogs, salads, sushi, BBQ and more. Nathan's hotdogs are a must try treat.
To pay for the rides at the park you purchase a Luna Card with credits to pay for the rides. The more credits you buy the lower the price per ride. From Monday to Thursday you can also purchase a 4 hour unlimited ride pass. See their official website for up to day pricing.

We brought the unlimited pass for 4 hours to Luna Park in Coney Island. Great place amazing rides that are for all ages. We drove a parked several blocks away. After we walked up and down the boardwalk. Tons of places to eat. Some lines seemed long but usually moved quickly. While some amazing rides had no line at all on the day we went! Great place for the family or just friends looking to do an amusement park.

I enjoy Luna Park at Coney Island. It’s really beautiful and I get to ride every ride. I came here on Fourth Of July. It was so fun and we got to see lots of fireworks by the beach side! You should also try the Mexican Cemitas! The best chicken sandwiches ever!!! Enjoyable with family!

A variety of rides on the boardwalk at Coney Island. Really a collection of small parks not always directly accessible from one to the other so it can be a little confusing. We got wristbands via a New York Pass which excluded a few of the bigger rides like the Cyclone, but there's still enough for all ages from preschoolers upwards. You can pay for the bigger rides as well if you wish. The wheel was a separate park and wasn't on when we visited, but the weather had been poor all day before our early evening visit. There was supposed to be fireworks on Friday evening but these hadn't materialised by the time we left just after 10, again maybe weather related. All parts of the park are accessible from the boardwalk and a stroll up and down is a nice way to break up the rides. Very vibrant and busy in the evening and a good selection of food and drink outlets if you want to eat or just sit and watch. Really good 3 or 4 hours as an option, slightly off the main NYC tourist trail.

Such a fun place! The thunderbolt and the cyclone rollercoasters were my favourite. Great place to spend a day in, especially when the weather is nice and you can also enjoy a few hours at the beach.

Fun park! The rides were better than expected however a few of them require separate tickets which isn't their fault but still a bit unfortunate. A little pricey considering the size but overall it's a nice experience and I'd go again.
