Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park
At Luna Park on Sunday, Italian tycoon Alberto Zamperla christened the first ride on the Cyclone roller coaster by dousing it with the traditional egg cream.
A 5-year-old boy was injured Wednesday on a ride at Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park at Coney Island, officials said.
While Coney Island is within the five boroughs, some New Yorkers have yet to take advantage of the beach and amusements right in their own backyard. The Wonder Wheel has been an institution for as long as skyscrapers have been part of New York’s skyline.
