“Family visit to Coney island”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

I must say I wasn't much exited about going to Coney Island while being in New york, but as we were a family group with 2 kids we did it for them. And it probed a nice plan for kids/families.
The amusement park is kind of decandent but it has some charm. However, I considered the rides price quite expensive (there's no entrance fee to the park; you buy tickets for each ride or kind of coupons for several, all quite pricey).
I liked the beach and sea-side walk and regretted not having brought bathing suits. I was surprised there would be a beach like that so close to NY city. if having known in advance, I'd have planned it differently and spent half the day in the park and half in the beach.
We ate at Nathan's and I was disappointed at quality, seize and price of food.

“Lots of people”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

It's a big amusement park, lots of fun, my family and I got into some of the rides. You. save more money if you buy the wrist band tickets. There's not an entrance fee to get into the park. There's a lot of people at the beach, just relaxing or hanging out. The Ladies restroom has a long line. There's a lot of places where you can grab food. My family and I ate at Nathan's, the price is reasonable. Nathan's is very famous on hot dogs eating contest.

Had heard the stories but never ventured out to Coney Island and what a shame. Loved the atmosphere and could not get over how great the beaches were. A great day to share with friends

“Very nice attractions”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

The beach it's cleaner than other beaches like jones beach. There're many rides you can get on but have a fee you have to pay before getting on. There's also many carnivals or events there

“Such variety!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

So much to see. There was free entertainment. A wide range of food. And a chance to swim in the ocean. What a great time we had.
