Coney Island has quite a history. At one time it was one of the largest amusement parks in the country. However, being on the banks of the Ohio River caused frequent flooding problems. In the late 1960s an agreement was made to relocate the park to what is now Kings Island. Coney Island survived as a swimming pool until the early 1990s when new owners brought back traditional rides. Coney Island now serves as a family-friendly small park with a dozen or so flat rides and a roller coaster. The park is affordable and has a very relaxing feel. There is sufficient shade in the park along with the more popular adjoining pool/waterpark.
Coney Island has a lot of history, but the park today is only a shadow of its former self. One coaster remains (Python), but the park's star attractions are its old-school thrill rides like Rock-O-Plane and Tempest. The park overall is a nice place to hang out for a couple hours, but it would be hard to justify a visit unless you have free time on a trip to Cincinnati for some other purpose.
The coaster here is not much to write home about, but they do have a nice collection of flats including the Rock-o-plane. There needs to be more of these out there! Very laid back atmosphere and an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.
