The overall park is not that bad. The rides are somewhat pricey, but within reason, and you can purchase tickets via the electronic tickets. The rides are what you expect of parks of this kind (carousels, water rides, etc.), but the star of the show is the huge Ferris wheel (the Wonder Wheel)! It is also close to Luna Park,... More

We walked by this while we were at Coney Island and enjoyed the view. I remember this from the Warriors movie and it was really cool to see this.

I'm a huge fan of the cult movie, 'The Warriors', my visit to New York required a definite visit to Coney Island, home of the Warriors. The Wonder Wheel was the highlight of the visit in the pouring rain along with a Nathan's Hotdog.

The wonder wheel is a classic part of Coney Island. You have to do it at least once. It's nice when they're having fireworks at MCU park.

One of Coney Island's iconic places, Deno's Wonder Wheel is a must-visit location. Get on the wheel and enjoy an amazing view of beach and the area around Coney Island. If you want to take it easy, relax and enjoy the view, make sure to step onto a Stationary car. If you're more the adventurous kind, get on the Swinging... More

Watching my 20 something year old kids have a blast on the ride just like 10 years ago. The price per ride was pretty steep at $8 per person per ride.

This was a cool little park near the beach. They had a nice variety and I especially liked the bumper cars. We had fun here.

How did we miss Deno's Wonder Wheel Park during our last visit to Coney Island? And the large ferris wheel, real carnie games and....SPOOK-A-RAMA?! Do spend some time here - it is easy to overlook even though it is right next to Luna Park. The Spook-A-Rama was just scary enough to make two adults look absolutely ridiculous during the photos.

No other ride is as well known and featured in Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins. Awesome ride that everyone went on in our family. Took a blue car (sliding!), but even the white cars (stationary) are great for the view of the city/ocean alone. Well worth it, even if the ride is a bit short.

This is an iconic attraction that you should not miss. You get great views from the cars. Make sure you get a car on the inside tracks so that you swing back and forth (adds to the excitement). If not, opt for a stationary car on the outside. Just something you should do.
