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.
