My family went to Coney Island yesterday. It was kind of expensive to get in. We had 3 adults and 4 kids. We bought the water/ride combination tickets and spent $120. All of us had a great time in the water park. They also have a store there where you can purchase floating tubes, sun glasses, hats, and swim suits. They are for sale at very good prices ( like $3 for all of them except really big ones that could fit like 4 people those were around $12). The water was clean and the water slides were very fun for the whole family.
We spent about 3 hours in the water park section then went over to the rides section. All of the rides with the exception of 1 were fair rides. We went on the only roller coaster that was there first. While we were in line there was a little girl who was not tall enough to ride the ride, the ride attendant told her she was not tall enough, then proceeded to allow her to ride it without an adult! (Arent those rules there for safety reasons??) After the roller coaster we road bumper cars and the little kids road small trains and airplanes. The final ride was with 2 of my kids and my mother in law. They road a boat that swings up in the air. When the ride was over the bar would no lift up and the ride operator just kept pushing buttons for 20 minutes, then called someone who said he was "in charge of all the rides". He pushed buttons then called someone else who said that the passengers were not properly proportioned and there was too much weight on one side of the boat and that is why the bar would not lift. So again safety not so important to these people. We talked to the manager who informed us that the man who said the ride weight was uneven "doesnt know what he is talking about" Umm shouldnt the person in charge know what he is talking about! So we got our money back. 100% full refund. If we ever go back we will only be going to the water park, because that really was worth the money.
