“The East Coast's Widest Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Although damaged by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012, Coney Island's beach continues to pack in thousands of families and tourists, as the largest New York City-region true-to-life BEACH. The amusements have seen better days as NYC continues to try and breathe new life into the region, but a walk along the endless boardwalk is worthwhile in itself.

“Before Sandy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Before Hurricane Sandy this was a wonder to behold I hope it will be once again soon. They had a brand new park with all new rides. Unfortunately now the arcades have been wiped out. But the wonder wheel and the cyclone are coney island staples and they will continue to endure. Please come visit the place and help us bring it back to its glory with your patronship. There is nothing like summer in coney island with a funnel cake carnival games shoot the freak and all sorts of thrills and spills.

“Worth the Ride!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Had to go, just to do it! Missed the rides because of the time of year, but had an awesome Nathan's Hot Dog and had our fortune told by Zoltar. Walked along the water on the Boardwalk, and would love to go back and ride the rides at night. Great time!!

Love the amusement park and flea markets. Small boardwalk and the beach is always crowded and dirty.
