Lonely Planet review

The most famous of the amusement parks on Coney Island, Luna Park. Opening in 1903 - a dream world with live camels and elephants, 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 ($8), is a wooden roller coaster that reaches speeds of 60mph and makes near-vertical drops. (Way scarier than anything at Universal.) It is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There are also newer rides, including the Soarin’ Eagle ($7), a roller coaster in which riders fly around on their bellies.
