The attraction is best known for its thumping nightclub atmosphere (people routinely mistake the building for such) and its quirky, enthusiastic staff (jumping onto moving cars, etc.).


That last part sounds particularly awesome!

El Dorado Bumper Cars will also be open, and the New York Aquarium will extend its hours to 9 p.m.

... or not. :lol:

El Dorado Bumper Cars will still be open, the New York Aquarium will still extend their hours and the carousel will run for the first 250 riders but the other rides will be closed.

Ah jeez, haven't been here in forever, I went to coney island and I took a few picture, it was very cloudy so the park looked like a ghost town, guys, it was so surreal, Brooklyn flyer was taken down and it was in pieces, I didn't notice till I left the park, workers were fixing things, maintenance was in a hurry, some rides were missing too. It was so empty that I had chills.

Opening day is March 24th (Saturday)! I believe that's a week earlier than last year, or maybe I'm going to a week later this year. None of the coasters particularly excite me, but I'll be in NYC opening weekend so that gives me an opportunity to visit a new park. Lots of unique flats and rides here + easy public transportation are big pluses in my book!

Make sure you ride the Cyclone in the back. If the Cyclone is still running as well as it was in 2016, you'll be in for some crazy ejector air on almost every single drop.

I'm not sure if they'll be doing it this year, but last year on opening day, the first 100 people in line for Cyclone got to ride it for free.

I mean... technically... EVERY day is free admission day when you don't charge at the gates...
