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.

So happy I decided to visit Luna Park on my vacation. Early fall was the perfect time to go as there weren't many people. My friend and I are 30 and almost 30 and we had so much fun on all of the rides. Staff were pretty friendly and the park is pretty clean (aside from the bathrooms on the boardwalk... you're better off holding it).

Fun little place to escape the city. I rode quite a few rides and the lines were not long at all. All the staff were very friendly and entertaining. I definitely recommend coming to this place if you are in New York for a little escape from the city.

As an Aussie where the two original (yes you heard me) Luna Parks exist I have to say that visiting this Luna Park was worth the effort. Lots of side shows, old rides and some great modern rides as well. The place really captures the atmosphere and ambience of an old time amusement park while having modern enough gear to bring in the kids. I really enjoyed myself in this park and would recommend it. I've now been to all three Luna Parks in the world :).

Best employee of the year Armando was the best and the most hard working person working there. He was devoted to his work and everyone enjoyed his company. He was well mannered and had a great sense of humor. He is an amazing guy so if u ever decide to go to Luna park make sure to go to one of his games you will def win and get a prize as well. He should be the manager and run the whole park. He is truly amazing at what he does and he should be appreciated. Whenever u go to Luna park make sure to meet Armando!!!

Great place to spend the whole day with the family. The rides have a scale for everyone to decide if it's for you to take. Get the bundle package to go on many rides. It's easily available at all the entrances. Get it online from their website for an even better bargain if you are positive you'll be heading there on a fixed date. Make sure you check out the map and explore the whole place. It's also stroller friendly and have lockers for your belongings.
