CONEY ISLAND Coney
Island is a New York City neighborhood that features an amusement area
that includes 50 or more separate rides and attractions; it's not a centrally
managed amusement park like Disneyland or Six Flags. As a result, specific
questions about rides, filming privileges, etc., should be directed to
individual businesses. This website is maintained by Coney Island USA,
the not for profit arts organization that runs the Mermaid Parade, the
Sideshow and the Coney Island Museum, among other programs.
DAYS AND TIMES OF
OPERATION Coney Island is a seasonal center operating roughly between Easter and
Halloween. Rides and attraction are generally open on weekends from Easter
until Memorial Day, all week long from Memorial Day until Labor Day, and
then weekends from Labor Day until the end of October. The beach and
boardwalk are open all year round (although lifeguards are only on duty
from Memorial Day to Labor Day) and Nathan's Hot Dogs and the New York
Aquarium are open almost every day of the year. The Coney Island Museum
is also open on Saturdays and Sundays, from noon to 5 PM all year round.
week, rides and attractions may open at noon and run until the late evening.
During the weekends, the same rides and attractions open around noon and
may run until the early morning.
