- (7/5/2024) Central Amusement International INC, the company that runs Luna Park in Coney Island, was invited Alessandra Zamperla to ring the Nasdaq closing bell that marked the start of the Fourth of July festivities in New York City.

    (11/26/2023) Luna Park in Coney Island is now open during the winter holiday season to celebrate Frost Fest. The park will be open on select dates from now through to January 7, 2024 where it will feature a select list of attraction as well as special winter temporary attractions such as an ice skating rink, holiday lights, photos with Santa and special food offerings. According to the local news, this is the first time a Coney Island amusement park has been open during the winter in 120 years.


2024 - Nothing is known at this time...


???? - Big WaveZ - Status Unknown / Never Installed To My Knowledge
    (10/2/21) Ready to see one of the latest creations from Zamperla being tested in Italy? In the clip below check out the BigWavez in action. I believe this first edition is decorated as “Neptunalia” and ready to be shipped off to Luna Park for next season, but boy is this going to attract an audience. Just watch the video to see for yourself.

    (3/28/21) Our friends at CoasterRadio have posted a cool video interview with Zamperla CEO Antonio Zamperla and Prototypeing Engineer Tim Jacobi where they talk about Zamperla’s new Big WaveZ” attraction will will be coming to Luna Park in 2022. Even more fun, Mike and EB from Coaster Radio have provided voices that will be used in the attraction experience, and help determine the final outcome of which ride experience the guests will experience. Check it out below with just the segment about Big WaveZ coming to Luna Park first, and then the entire full interview in the video below that.
    Now I know that previously the Big WaveZ was originally announced as part of the park’s 2020 lineup to celebrate the park’s 10th birthday, but after being kept closed for 2020, we thought these plans would all bump back to 2021. Obviously this is not the case, as they confirmed Big WaveZ for 2022, so I’m not sure of the fate for the rest of the 2020/2021 lineup at this time and if any will open in 2021, if they all will be delayed to 2022, or if some were cancelled entirely. Anyone know more?
