The first Luna Park, the most renowned of Coney Island’s contending event congregations, opened in 1903 and reigned for quite a long time until decimated by fire in 1944. A totally new Luna Park was developed in 2010, consolidating as its masterpiece the traditionally clackety wooden crazy ride the Cyclone ($10), which opened in 1927 and started exciting ride fever in American culture with its close vertical drops and speeds of 60mph. It’s presently recorded on the National Register of Historic Places.
There are more than two-dozen more up to date rides in Luna Park, which ranges over a few squares on the south side of Surf Ave (note that Deno’s Wonder Wheel is controlled by a different business) – including the monstrous Thunderbolt ($10), an advanced thrill ride with a 90-degree vertical drop and 100ft circles. New rides being developed for the 2020 season incorporate a splashdown log flume and a ropes course with zip-lines.
