New Boss at Coney Island

New, 2 comments

Yesterday Coney Island woke from its winter hibernation with a few rumblings of activity, and now NY1 drops a bombshell (for those who enjoy the company of carnies): The city has chosen an amusement park operator for Coney Island this summer! It's Italian-owned Zamperla USA, which beat out operators like Ripley's Believe It Or Not for the temporary right to run the park. Zamperla will reportedly stick rides 'n stuff on three parcels of land between the former Astroland site and KeySpan Park. [NY1]
