Coney Island midweek in late Sept

Youngest son turns 16 while we are in New York and is not keen to do sightseeing things on his big day, just wants to have some fun - theme park, water park etc. I thought a day at Coney Island might fit the bill nicely and it would be a chance for me to see this historic icon. Was disappointed to read things slow down midweek after Labor day, his birthday is 29 Sept, a Wed. Do you think there would be much open? Many thanks.

Coney Island slows down after Labor Day. Most rides/attractions are only open on the wknds. So no opportunity to ride the roller coasters, etc.

Unfortunately, it probably won't be much fun. Why not wait and see how the weather is(if you will be here on a weekend) and if it is nice, go then?

We were there on the Wednesday after Labor Day and because it was so beautiful things opened... not sure if that will hold....

Could stroll the Promenade and get great pizza and ice cream right near the Brooklyn Bridge... Pick up East River Ferry for great views of Manhattan...

Check photos and notes:

Have a great trip...

Most of the rides are only open weekends after Labor Day, so I think he might be disappointed on a Wednesday. Can you go Sat or Sun?

There is also a brand new roller coaster that looks thrilling: nytimes.com/video/nyregion/100000002936898/r…

There is also an Aquarium just down the boardwalk: http://www.nyaquarium.com/

And a visit to Brighton Beach, also just down the boardwalk, will be an adventure: nycgo.com/slideshows/must-see-brighton-beach
