Old Coney Island Amusements Set to Whirl Again Even as New Rides Remain Beached





BY GABRIEL SANDOVAL AND CLIFFORD MICHEL
APR 6, 2021


Quote:
When Coney Island’s world-famous amusement rides reopen Friday, crowds of tourists and New Yorkers are expected to hop on for the first time since the pandemic shuttered businesses along Brooklyn’s historic boardwalk last spring.

But notably missing from the beachfront People’s Playground are several attractions originally scheduled for completion up to two years ago — including a new log flume water ride, an arcade, a public plaza with a food court and an “adventure park” with a rope course.

And they’re all still at least a year away.

The city’s Economic Development Corporation announced in 2018 the selection of Central Amusement International, the owner of Coney Island’s Luna Park, to expand the amusement district by 150,000 square feet on city-owned property. That would increase the district by 50%, to 450,000 square feet.

The adventure park was supposed to open in 2019, with the water ride expected a year later. But pandemic shutdowns nixed any hope of the expansion materializing during the 2020 season — a lost year that should have included celebration of the 100th anniversary of Deno’s Wonder Wheel.

The EDC doesn’t anticipate the new attractions to be ready until the 2022 season, according to a spokesperson.


Quote:
Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park also reopens Friday, with tickets honored for up to two hours sold online in advance.

As part of a belated 100th birthday celebration, Deno’s will give free rides to 100 front-line workers, Bklyner reported.

This summer is also expected to bring the debut of Phoenix, a new roller coaster that will stand 68 feet tall and reach speeds of up to 34 mph, according to the Alliance for Coney Island.

Deno’s’ and Luna Park’s main gates will be closed to prevent passersby without tickets from wandering around to look at the rides.


Didn't know Deno's was expecting another attraction. Good for them.

that new coaster at deno's, while obviously not a high-octane thrill ride, looks fun.

i love the fact that coney island somehow survived its dark ages and is now seeing significant investment in its amusement parks once again.

the US doesn't really have a whole lot in the way of urban amusement parks left.

It really has come a long way since Astroland closed. They've added a few more attractions every year, and people who haven't been there in years are always surprised at what they find. It's a genuinely fun place to visit, far from the years when people though of just crime.

They've also been building a lot of housing on some of the empty lots, and that will continue. What will really turn the corner for CI though is when they start to build the indoor amusements.
