Last weekend while spending some time in New York Renée stopped by Coney Island and Luna Park.
Home to some unique coasters and rides with a great seaside setting. Lots of wackiness and good food.

We're at Luna Park at Coney Island on this hot summer day in Brooklyn, NY!
Had to check out Thunderbolt first!
Thunderbolt was more intense than I expected, a little rough, but a unique coaster to ride.
Remember the 9 hour+ waits for these at Fun Spot America? No lines here!
I guess I'll brace myself for a journey on Soarin Eagle while we're here.
Yup, I'm good with just one ride on Soarin' Eagle.
Rode the Tickler several years ago, but it's a decent wild mouse coaster.
I remember riding WindstarZ at IAAPA last year, and here it is now at Luna Park. Fun ride!
Air Race is another one of a kind ride that you can find at Luna Park
Saddle up for Steeplechase!
Another fun and unique ride that you can find at Luna Park! We loved Steeplechase!
And of course Coney Island is home to the world famous Cyclone
Having already done the Cyclone several times, we skipped it this time around. But it's always good to see it!
It's pretty clear that you sit where you're told on the Cyclone at Coney Island
Checking out some of the sights along the Coney Island boardwalk
And if you're hungry, there's always the original Nathan's to grab a hot dog
Instead of hot dogs, we opted for fantastic beer and pizza at Coney Island Brewing Co
And our afternoon was complete with beer cup towers and sword swallowing at Coney Island Brewery.
Our summer afternoon was a blast at Luna Park at Coney Island
