Things to Do

Luna Park

Dyker Beach Park - Travel - Hotels4TeamsYou may have heard of the famous Brooklyn neighborhood and boardwalk known as Coney Island. This amusing landmark has been a centerpiece of Brooklyn for decades. The boardwalk is home to a couple thrill rides that your team would love, but since 2010 Coney Island has been the site of something even more exciting. Luna Park is a new amusement park located along the Coney Island beach and boardwalk. Rides for all ages and preferences can be found here. Those who are searching for an adrenaline rush have multiple options available to them. Zoom through the air on coasters like the Coney Island Cyclone or Thunderbolt. Race your friends around the go-kart track at Coney Island Raceway. Or get launched into the atmosphere by the Sling Shot.

If you like your rides just a little bit tamer, you’ll be pleased with what Luna Park offers. Less intense roller coasters like Steeplechase and Wild River provide riders with just enough intensity while not going overboard. Not every ride needs to get your heart pumping to the max. Sometimes you just want to have a little fun without the adrenaline rush. You have plenty of moderate and mild thrill rides to help round out your park-going experience. No boardwalk is complete without a collection of games. Luna Park has amassed a solid selection of fun games like Whac A Mole and Basketball EXTREME. The park even has an arcade! Multiple dining options are available and can be found all over the park. Group rates are offered for groups of 20 or larger. 1000 Surf Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11224
