LUNA PARK: The amusement park at Coney Luna Park is a mere subway ride from anywhere in Brooklyn -- or Manhattan! And, if you haven't been there for awhile, you might be surprised. It's had a makeover. There are over 20 different rides and attractions. The most famous is of course the wooden landmark Cyclone Rollercoaster, and newer "Scream Zone" rides. But there are 2012 additions too, including a not 3D but so-called 5D ride, "The Orion 5D Experience," as well as a laser maze, Popnoggins Interactive video game that "dances to your choice of song, " face painting and hair braiding.

Located steps away from various shops, restaurants (including the famous Nathan's), the beach, the new and improved boardwalk, the iconic Wonder Wheel and the aquarium, Luna Park has something for everyone.
