In the Neighborhood
The first custom-built roller coaster to be constructed in Coney Island since the Cyclone back in 1927, the 125-foot-tall Thunderbolt—featuring 2,000 feet of steel track, a 100-foot loop, a corkscrew and a zero-gravity roll—is a modern spin on the classic Coney Island coaster of the same name.
Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park
When the late Constantinos Dionysios Vourderis—otherwise known as Deno—bought the Wonder Wheel in the early 1980s, he fulfilled a longtime promise to his wife: he’d vowed on more than one occasion to purchase the Ferris wheel for her as a wedding present, so everyone could see how much he loved her.
Outdoors & Recreation
Built over the grounds of the old Steeplechase Park—one of Coney Island’s most popular attractions in the first half of the 20th century—Steeplechase Plaza is a 2.2-acre open pedestrian plaza that will serve as an entrance point into the more-recent Coney Island constructions.
One of the classic Coney Island boardwalk joints, Paul’s Daughter has been serving corndogs, hot dogs, Italian ices, knishes, soft serve, funnel cakes, sausages, cotton candy, clams on the half shell, fries and beer to hungry beach-goers for more than six decades.
