Coney Island Board-Walk had a triumphant re-opening this past Sunday as thousand of peoples swarmed the beloved rides and reveled in some pre-summer fun.
The re-opening of Coney Island was a smash success and one of the biggest openings in the park history. This years opening seems particularly significant, considering what a beating the area took during Hurricane Sandy. Most of the rides have had to undergo extensive repair after sustaining electrical and even structural damage in the storm.
The Wonder Wheel, Cyclone Roller and Scream Zone Park are good to go. Long timers, Disco-era bumper cars and Totonno's Pizza and little guys Lola Staar Boutique on the Board-walk and the Coney Island History project nestled under it.http://whatsupnewyork411.blogspot.com/2012/12/pizza-is-quintessential-brooklyn-fast.html
Coney Island's amusement business is still not 100% according to a report by the New York Daily News, Coney Island's famed freak sideshows are still not operational and won't be expected to return until May.
Everything is not open, New York Aquarium will be close through late Spring, Nathan's itself is shuttered until Memorial Day.
So go ahead and treat yourself and the kids to a pre summer fun at Coney Isand.
