Being native to the New York area Coney Island is a must visit destination for summer. We have ventured to Coney Island for fun and found some fun things to do with friends.
Ride the two famous rides Wonder Wheel and Cyclone
These two rides have been around since the 1920's and have made a name for themselves you can see the Wonder Wheel as you go over the Verrazano Bridge so people have made a connection with Wonder Wheel and Coney Island. The Wonder Wheel has 3 different color cars and the difference between this Ferris wheel and others is that some of the cars swing back and forth as the wheel goes around. Some may think this is terrifying and others find it awesome. So grab a friend and take a spin on the wonder wheel this summer. The Cyclone is the second most well known coaster at Coney Island and was built in 1927, only 7 year years after the Wonder Wheel. Cyclone gives you an authentic wooden coaster experience like no other. Go back in time to when wooden coasters were built get ready to reach new heights, turns and drops on this one of a kind beauty.
When your stomach starts to rumble you need to fuel your body
Grab a slice of pizza from Ferrari's Pizza in Coney Island. If you authentic brick over pizza this spot is for you. They have everything and anything on the menu from plain pizza to specialty slices. You name it they will make it. If you're in the mood for something quick walk over the Luna Snacks for some delicious treats that you eat while walking along boardwalk. Don't forget the cotton candy! On hot days the best treat is ice cream! Make your way down the boardwalk to Coney Cones for some delicious gelato. They have some really good flavors that will keep you cool and your taste buds happy.
Challenge your friends to a game and see who is the best
There are many games games to play along the boardwalk for a good laugh you can test your skills against your friends to see who wins or play random people. The water racing games are always fun because the odds get tougher as more people play and it decreases your chances of coming home with that 4 ft giraffe! Who knows the odds may be in your favor this time. There are so many other games to choose from from balloon dart games to catching a plastic fish and weighing it to see what kind of prize you win.
Events in Coney Island
Coney Island is known for putting on quite the shows or having different events that attract locals and tourists. Coming up Coney Island will be celebrating The Cyclone's 90th Birthday we don't know too many coasters that have a birthday but we hope to share in the celebration.
When we were thinking of a photo shoot to do our summer campaign we couldn't think of a better place than the Coney Island Boardwalk. This boardwalk has been through the ups and downs for years and now is a great summer destination. Here at Brooklyn Cloth we stand by a culture surrounded by family, friends, good laughs and good times which is why we chose this spot. Everyone grew up going to Coney Island and it holds a place in their hearts where you can just kick back and relax, play games, eat and go on so many rides until you are dizzy. We had a great time doing our summer campaign here because the inspiration came from what we know and what we grew up with.
So go out with some friends and have a blast this summer Brooklyn Cloth Style!
