Coney Island Opens its doors for Summer!

Coney Island has opened its doors for summer 2017! The amusement park is back in business and will be turning 90 years old this year. The official opening ceremony took place last Sunday, April 9th as well as the 32nd annual “Blessing of the Rides”.

People of all ages enjoyed the sunny weather and flocked to the Island last Saturday. Nathan’s Famous hot dogs and Ruby’s beers were the food and drink of choice for the visitors along the boardwalk.

The park hours will be changing frequently until high summer arrives; but for now, the rides are open from noon to 8 p.m. on Sundays and all week during spring break.
