Coney Island is a thriving, year-round entertainment destination full of fun things to do, both historic and brand new. And it's just a stone's throw away!
Happy Thanksgiving from Coney Island!
With some crazy antics in its past, Coney Island is the birthplace of the amusement park, hot dog and modern roller coaster.
Find out more with the Coney Island History Project (weekend walking tours and access to their museum) or Coney Island Tours (daily walking tours). Contact either (or both!) organizations in advance to set up your special day in Coney.
What if you needed to be shocked by a cattle prod before you could exit a ride?
A group of 100 students rode the B&B Carousell today before heading off to a historic tour from Coney Island Tours.
They learned that the Blowhole Theater was the exit to the old Steeplechase ride. After their ride, guests were accosted by clowns with cattle prods in front of a live audience. #tbt
