Coney Island Kids Attractions

On a recent trip to discover all things wonderful for kids in New York City, we decided to hop on the F train and spend an afternoon in Coney Island. Coney Island and its Luna Park amusement rides are a natural fit for kids, but something appealed to me as well that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Perhaps it was the East Coast boardwalk and beachfront atmosphere that I had really only seen in the movies. Regardless of my motivation, we had a ton of fun and it looked like this.

Note:  I was pleasantly surprised to discover that an all day ride pass for Luna Park was included with the New York Pass pass that we used for this trip.

Needless to say, it was an action packed day and no surprise to me when the kids passed out in the cab on the way to the airport that evening.
