Rides Revealed for Luna Park

The LA Times' Funland Blog has revealed the names and descriptions of the 19 rides opening at Luna Park in Coney Island, NY. The new park opens in just 10 days, on May 29th.

Among the rides are two coasters, named The Tickler (Wild Mouse) and Lunar Express (family coaster). Many of the other rides have names that celebrate both the history of the park and it's beautiful beach side setting. Air Race will be the first ride of its kind when it makes its debut.

For a selection of progress photos, be sure to check out this Flickr photo stream. They've been keeping updated shots coming on a regular basis. From the latest batch it looks like it'll be a race to the last second to get construction done for opening.
