Owner description: Home to famous rides like the Cyclone Roller Coaster, the Wonder Wheel and the Parachute Jump, this historic seaside section of Broooklyn is about an hour by train from Manhattan and still boasts a lively boardwalk, beach, and the best hot dogs around.

“Brilliant time at Coney island”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

Fantastic atmosphere while we were there. The boardwalk is all brand new, the sand was free from debri while we were there and the sea seemed clean. There are many shops and restaurants/bars along the sea front with hotdogs, burgers, milkshakes at reasonable prices. There is no fee for using the beach. Toilet and changing facilities are provided, and life guards were on duty while we were there. We only went on one ride at the fair ground, so cannot really comment on that section of the area. It was easily accessible from Manhattan by one train journey, which has its last station a five minute walk away from the beach front.

“Absolutely worth the trip to Coney Island!!”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

We'd never been and on this visit to New York we decided to go. Truly loved it. Went to Nathan's, walked the boardwalk, rode the Cyclone (FANTASTIC), saw a "freak" show (TOTALLY FUN) and then went to a baseball game. Was one of our best days in New York and I would do it again in a heartbeat. (Don't expect Disney or an "amusement park" - it's really unique and different from that)

“Not much different than any other boardwalk, but the history is relevant!”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

Worth checking out if your nearby. The Ferris wheel was the highlight of our trip. Built in 1918 and it still doesn't disappoint. The beach is pretty from a distant, but dirty up close. Nathan's hot dog is a must. Games are fun and rides are a thrill. Nice family spot or romantic for a couple at night.

“About what I expected”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

I have been to NYC several times but never made it out to Coney Island. My husband and I were in town for Labor Day weekend and we decided to make the trip. The freak show was fun for $10 a ticket and the Nathan's hot dogs were good! The rest was the beach and boardwalk with rides and food stands/souvenir shops. It's worth a trip out to explore at least once but since we don't have kids and we weren't into the rides or beach I don't know that we'd make a trip out there again.
