While Hurricane Sandy gave Coney Island a major whupping in October, there was never much doubt that the historical amusement park would pick itself up, wipe itself off and get back into the business of entertaining America--and it has. Adults may dig the retro hipster tackiness of the scene, but kids just unabashedly love the thrills: ogling sword swallowers, chowing down on hot dogs, watching the Mermaid Parade from Dad’s shoulders and screaming through the most awesome rides ever. If you’re tall enough, dare yourself to ride on the Cyclone; otherwise, try something a little tamer, like the Teacups or Balloon Expedition. You can even catch a good old-fashioned minor-league ball game down the beach at MCU Park.
