I envision Coney Island as Miami-off-Manhattan. A party district ALA New Orleans French quarter, with bars, strip clubs and casinos, and everything in between, towered over by near-supertall white apartment complexes heavy on the balconies.

Let's make Coney Island great again.

Coney Island's time is coming again. Still a long way to go, but it's already come a long way from where it was.

I wonder if this year's debuts will happen...


This article appears in the MARCH 2020 issue of Amusement Today.

http://amusementtoday.com/coney-isla...-year-success/


Quote:
“At CAI we do more than add rides to our parks; we work to enhance the entire park experience,” said Zamperla. “That’s why we hired Team Park Project to design the expansion areas with the goal to include spaces to relax with art installations to further display the unique charisma and history of Coney Island and give guests an opportunity to enjoy the amazingly fun ambiance while visiting Luna Park.”

Children and families, however, will be delighted with new ride offerings. Big WaveZ will be the first of its kind. Termed an interactive water ride, Big WaveZ will make its worldwide debut at Luna Park. Passengers board a tower ride, rise to the top where they interact with a video screen and then plunge to create a big splash. A Zamperla company product, the ride has been in development and testing for a year.

“Think of it as a vertical shoot-the-chute,” said Michael Coleman, North American sales, Zamperla. “Riders get wet, but spectators do, too, in a splash zone.”

Two of the new attractions are intertwined. A Junior Coaster and Super Flume, both produced by Zamperla, will reside on the same space, twisting and curving around each other.
Quote:
Riders on the Super Flume, which will operate with up to 12 boats seating six passengers, will have a momentary panoramic view of the shoreline before the plunge finale. The family coaster features many curves as the track weaves through the flume ride. It will be equipped with two trains, both of which will feature ADA access.

“The marriage of these two dissimilar attractions heightens the riders’ sense of anticipation, amplifies the guests’ perspectives and incites curiosity,” Zamperla told Amusement Today. “After riding one of the two interlaced attractions, our guests will be excited to ride the other.”

The new coaster will be the seventh at Luna Park, including the legendary Cyclone, arguably the most famous roller coaster in the world.

Even more is being added for the 10th anniversary. Sporting a circus theme, a Ropes Course Adventure Zone supplied by RCI will offer four levels of physical, interactive entertainment as kids navigate the attraction, which offers various skill levels. Located next to the Thunderbolt roller coaster, the structure will also feature ziplines.














Expansion areas...

Is this satire?

Coney Island is pretty far from Manhattan. It isn't gonna be a "French Quarter" for Manhattan-centered tourists and thrillseekers.

Also, there's a large, established community there, surrounding the amusements. Tons of Russians/Ukrainians on the eastern half, and a mix of Orthodox Jews, AAs, Hispanics and Chinese on the western half.

That area has come so far in my years in NY. It has gone from borderline slum to really interesting area. Can't wait for the future. Tons of housing being built, and the amusement parks are expanding.

Plus The Warriors live there and no doubt some other gangs would try to frame them for messing everything up.

Nice Pictures, but I know people are not deadass swimming in that water B.

I don't even swim at rehobeth beach, Im from Florida so I know what real water/beach is.

Up north beaches are good for a quick getaway but they are really bad and dirty.

Yea ok Florida has the cleanest beaches, are you sure about that? Last I heard, there are sewage pipes draining dirty shit water in Miami beach, and they ain’t getting fixed until 2025 buddy

Your Florida beach filled with poop:

Ive heard about that. I was boosting a bit, yea Florida has some issues because of corrupt people. but north east beaches are not cleaner than Florida beaches bro. Dupont destroyed the area as well as all the other factories.

so don't act like up north is equal to Florida because it's not.

lol

An unpopular opinion but Coney Island is how I envision a beach community in dystopian future novels. I'm not a native New Yorker, so I have no standing on the matter, but it's one of the most overrated places I've ever been to in my life. My personal and perhaps misguided opinion.

Lol what? It's no Bahia Honda, but the water out off Rockaway is fine. Your loss
