The most famous of the amusement parks on Coney Island, Luna Park, opened in 1903. A dream world with live camels and elephants, it's illuminated by more than a million bulbs. Today, it is still possible to ride the Wonder Wheel (opened in 1920) and the clackety Cyclone roller coaster (1927). The Cyclone ($9), is a wooden roller coaster that reaches speeds of 60mph and makes near-vertical drops.

The Cyclone is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There are also newer rides, including the Thunderbolt ($10), a roller coaster with a 90-degree vertical drop and 100ft loops. Check online for opening days and times, which vary by month.
