It’s only April, but it already feels like summer on Coney Island.
The legendary amusement district kicked off its 2022 season on Saturday as fearless patrons screamed at the top of their lungs, rode the famous Cyclone roller coaster and spun like tops on other Luna Park rides.
They were joined by carnie barkers on stilts and other freaks and geeks that Coney Island is famous for. The Cyclone’s annual egg custard christening also took place, marking the famous coaster’s 95th birthday. A portion of the park’s proceeds on Saturday will be donated to local charities.
