A woman claims she got stuck on the Coney Island Wonder Wheel for nearly half an hour on Thursday night while Beyonce and her entourage boarded the ride.
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.
The Wonder Wheel has been delighting visitors at Coney Island for generations. And now its operators are putting a bright idea into action, giving the iconic Ferris wheel an environmentally friendly upgrade.
