"security" will kick you out at the drop of a hat. Don't spend your money here. You will be physically and verbally abused by the staff.

Never knew that the music center was inside Coney's island. I was shock to see the different attractions. Once inside the music center, it was fast, easy to enter. The line wasn't that long, and staff was friendly and working in a timely matter. Very...More

I would guess that the closest hotel is 5 miles away. You can uber or take a cab but realize that your trip there will be cheap. The ride back might be over $100. depends on how popular the concert is
