Luna Park Successfully Opens

Visitors to Brooklyn and Coney Island had extra reason to celebrate this past Memorial Day weekend - the new Luna Park was officially open for business! From photos and video it looks like the park had quite a crowd!

Zamperla was able to get twelve of the rides open to the public. Now that the busy opening weekend is behind them, Luna Park has closed until Friday to finish up work on the park and remaining rides. Park management gave free rides to guests for the first hour of the opening day to make up for not being fully finished.

It's really an amazing feat that the park opened at all so soon, as the entire thing was built in only 100 days.
