One of the benefits of living in Brooklyn, or even NYC is that you get a whole amusement park at Coney Island that is accessible by train and bus! You don’t have to travel far, and to add to all of it, there is a beach you can enjoy too. A few weeks ago, we were invited to Luna Park NYC for the first of many times this season to check out the brand new rides the Coney Clipper and the Cozmo Jet! We go so often during the summer season that we couldn’t wait to check out the new additions!
The Cozmo Jet Ride at Luna Park NYC
Cozmo Jet, a family friendly ride for all which features high-tech virtual-reality, video, and an interactive gaming console that allows guests to shoot aliens and track their scores. This ride will be located at the Surf Avenue entrance between W. 10th Street and Jones Walk. The minimum height requirement to ride the Cozmo Jet is 36”.
The boys were immediately into this ride because it combines video play with the physical ride. Once you load into the ride, one or both riders can control how high each car lifts and descends. The ride is located right at the front of the park, and will be one of the most popular rides this summer!
Coney Clipper, a pirate ship themed that promotes an adrenaline rush, fun for the entire family. The Coney Clipper sways from left to right providing a and 75 degree view of Luna Park. This ride will be located next to Luna 360 on W. 10th Street between Surf Ave and Riegelmann Boardwalk. The minimum height to ride the Coney Clipper is 48”.
We headed right over to the Coney Clipper, a big boat that swings left to right. Unfortunately only one of the boys (my eldest) cleared the height requirement, so the little was left with me. He could have rode with an adult but since I am in the family way, I was not allowed on the ride. (Don’t worry we will be back with his dad many times this summer!). The eldest boy loved the experience and immediately went back on the ride for a second go round.
We even had some really hilarious pirates on site who kept us laughing the entire time!
Both rides are now available, in addition to the tons of other attractions at Luna Park!Check out the new #CozmoJet and #ConeyClipper ride at @LunaparkNYC! #coneyisland #LunaParkNYC
