“Great time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Visited Coney Island wonder wheel park whilst on a recent visit to New York. The place is great with lots of rides to go on, it's very clean and very safe as plenty to NYPD around to make sure you are safe. The wonder wheel was fun and especially liked the Coney Island raceway! If you are going to NY and have time and a family then you should visit as you won't be disappointed and only 45 mins from Times Sq on the subway

“If you visit Coney Island, you must try the Wonder Wheel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

One of Coney Islands oldest rides, it is a huge ferris wheel and although some of the carts are traditional and go in circles, there are others that swing. Great for the whole family, enjoy the ride, enjoy the view. Its all part of the Coney Island experience.

We took our 2yr old son there and he had an incredible time, I thought before going that there would not be much for him to do boy was I wrong! T
Granted I had to ride with him but he had a blast!! Definitely recommend!

As any native knows, you're bound to talk about Times Square, broadway, a zillion restaurants, how many Elmo's can possibly be in one city block and Coney Island.

Having a nice beach and refurbished boardwalk it's a surprising walk and look at the Atlantic while just a few minutes away from the heart of busy business.

With the sideshow and freaks, which will include you if you spent any time at all deciding on your apparel, you get the feeling of safety amidst insanity and expression that classifies itself as an art.

The Wonder Wheel had been one of my symbols of NYC for a long time. Take the movie The Warriors using it as home bases triumphant tower.

For that reason I visit here not just for the rides but the people that come to ride the rides, see the sights, be the sights. I love the ride and its entire backdrop enough to use it in my own art.

Not the tallest, cheapest or best along the shores of NY and NJ, it certainly is a beacon of where to land.

If you're nostalgic with a twisted sense for the here and now and been there now gone, come to the Wonder Wheel, ride it, watch the people in the area and enjoy the show. It's almost always on.

“Wonder Wheel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Had a lot of fun riding the Wonder Wheel - went up twice in the moving carriage! You are way up high and can get some good pics - when the carriage isn't moving...when it's moving - it's the ride of your life! LOL - can be a bit scary but so much fun!
