UPDATE: As of Mar 20, both Luna Park and Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park in Coney Island will postpone their opening dates, which were originally scheduled for Apr 4, due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Too soon to daydream about warm afternoons on the Coney Island Boardwalk? Never!
Undoubtedly intending to cure our winter blues, Luna Park revealed on Instagram that it will kickstart its new season on Apr 4, 2020—an announcement that typically doesn't come until later in the year. Regardless, we gladly welcome this exciting news about one of our favorite kids' amusement parks, even if we're still bundled up in winter garb.
Even better news? This year marks Luna Park's 10th anniversary, and the family attraction promises a ton of surprises are in store for its visitors. The exciting, albeit cryptic, remark definitely has us looking forward to the spring.
What's not surprising, however, are a few of the park's 2020 plans: a new log flume, ropes course and coaster will be making a debut later this year. In fact, Luna Park even elicited help from thrill-seekers to help name each of the attractions several months ago.
While we still have plenty of time before opening day—and all of the fun surprises—now is a great opportunity to tackle the city's best indoor activities for kids before your crew gets too busy outdoors. Don't forget to check out other cool things to do with kids in NYC in 2020, too, like the Museum of Natural History's new planetarium show (debuting Jan 21).
We'll see you soon, Luna Park! Save us a ride on the Cyclone.
