“Impressive for a HUGE pool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

(This review is for Sunlite Pool.) I could get nit picky and say that the grass is thin, the water tastes salty and the pool sides are less than perfect. The bottom line is: non of that matters. The pool is impressive! Swimming in a football sized pool is just cool. The staff are professional and friendly. My 8 year old has a blast chasing sunken objects and looking around with her goggles. My friends float for hours relaxing and hanging out. I love the photo op and the laid back feeling of the crowd. We were there just as the off season was starting so 1/2 of the food places were closed but we had what we needed. We could have stayed in the pool ENDLESSLY.

“Coney has it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013 via mobile

Great place to take kids. Fun classic rides and not a million people like the big amusement parks. Water park and picnic areas make it a total win win place to go

“Great to be back at Coney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

I have not been since I was a small child. I was visiting my parents and brought my little girl who is going on 6. She had a blast with her cousins on the rides and it is just the right size and price for children aound her age. My husband and I also did lots of the rides and had fun too. Lost my cell phone on a ride and the whole staff was alerted. Got it back in an hour or so. Wonderful time and wonderful new memories too!

Having been in Cincinnati Saturday for the Zoo we decied to try Coney Island on Sunday before going home. At $11.95 all day ride cost I wasn't expecting a lot but was I ever wrong. We had a 6 year old girl, a 14 year old boy , and 3 adults of which two were seniors. First of all the park was easy to get to and we arrived 30 minutes before the rides started up. The park was beautiful with a lot of nice shade trees, flowers, and lakes to enjoy. There were plenty of park benches to set on thru out the park and most of them were in the shade (an added bonus).
A map was provided at the entrance gate and everything was easy to get to. There were numerous restrooms thru out the park. Though the park did not have roller coasters with 300' drops it had all fun rides necessary without standing in line for two hours to ride them as you find at Kings Island. The staff was very friendly no matter who you asked and the entire day was just a lot of fun. Food was a little expensive but probably less than Kings Island and the parking at $8 was a lot but again probably a lot less than Kigs Island.Would definitely go back again and enjoy a very pretty park with a lot of fun rides for everyone.

“Great price after 4pm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

I took my nieces (6, 11) and nephew (5) to Coney Island for the first time since we moved here. This is an excellent amusement park for their ages. I got in free since I was the adult (this is the entire month of August) and the kids were just a little over $21 total. $8 to park is a little steep, but we parked right next to the entrance. The two younger ones were too short to ride three of the rides, but there were plenty of other rides that did work.
The Scrambler was a huge hit, as was the ferris wheel. There are paddle boats and small motorized boats in the small lake (with a fountain) in the amusement park. Bumper cars and 4 kiddie rides. A small roller coaster is there, but my kids were too short to ride it.
Ice cream, funnel cakes, and the usual hot dogs, hamburgers, etc. but we only had ice cream. Vanilla or orange creme sickle.
The 4-8pm was just long enough for all of us to get really tired. They rode the ferris wheel twice and we all rode the Scrambler 4 times. No lines, very little wait.
The park is very clean and the teens that are manning the rides did a very good job. Next time we will try the acre swimming pool and water slides.
