Pros: perfect

Astroland is a New York classic. Hopefully it will survive the Coney Island redevelopment plans. I love the classic, fun but not too scary rides and the prices are right. Spend time on the beach and then ride a few before heading to the train. Perfect NYC day.

"Hurling" in a lot of places, con artists (Not a good place for kids, also known as scammers), and a lot of bad things. The only thing good is that it is a historical landmark.

I been to carnivals and amusement parks of all sizes and all around the country, and nothing compares to Coney Island. I been reading alot of view points on Coney island and i feel very insulted that alot of tourists and out of towners visit NYC and all they do is insult what we have to offer and talk about how bad Coney island is i understand that Coney may not be no six flags or ceder point but Coney paved the way and made the foundation of the modern day amusment park and carnival, the cyclone is the most imitated roller coaster to date, and us New Yorkers have the original still standing right here in Brooklyn. If there were no nathan's chances are you would never eat a hot dog, us New Yorkers setted trends for the rest of the world to emulate, when you visit places like coney, dont compare it to theme parks, look at it as a part of american history and culture. in order to fully understand my point of view and appreciate Coney u have to be a New York Native- coney island is apart of our culture and apart of my memories of bein apart of this city.

Pros: Cyclone, Brighton Beach, Nathans- this park is the backdrop to alot of movies and pop culture and the most imitated around the country, a good history trip

Cons: Some rides may be alittle too old and need to be renovated or restored. Lack of restrooms.

You know astroland, the only amusement park in the brooklyn area, and most of new york. The amusement park with fireworks, right next to Keyspan park, the aquarium, and the beach full of jellyfish. Also home to the world famous cyclone that nobody rides. Listen, astroland has lots of stands, good rides for kids, and older people. There's just a little thing that gets in the way. There aren't good crowds, the place is dirty, everything is old, and there's even a strret sorrounding some really good rides. Like the zipper, or one of those fast flying whale rides that spin on metal bars. There's also a sled, a simulator, another fast ride I remember being in green. But noone is there to ride it, there all broken down or closed, and the service plays songs with curses, and when the songs curse, they have to speak in the microphone to blank it out, and memorize the songs. You're on the ride for about a half an our, which is not the best, you break your neck, and pay so much. Plus the height restriction is crazy. Not the typical place to go to, but very enjoyable.

There is nothing on earth like riding the Cyclone for the first time. For starts, it's old. How can something nearly 80 years old hold together? Second, the first drop. As a kid I remember the adreneline pumping as it made its climb up the tracks to the top. I was scared, and it hadn't even dropped. Lastly, this is New York in all its dingy glory! The beach, the hot dogs at Nathans, the boardwalk. You don't have to drive for hours, waste the gas, and stand on long, long, long lines like other so-called amusement parks. Ride the Cyclone, get a tan, walk the boardwalk, see the Cyclone baseball team play, visit an outpost of Russia. Can't beat it for a subway ride!

Pros: Cyclone, History, Diversity

Located on Coney Island in Brooklyn, this famous amusement park features the popular wooden rollercoaster, Cyclone. Built in 1927, this wooden rollercoaster, reaching speeds of 60 miles per hour, is a NYC landmark. Although it is neither faster nor has bigger drops than lots of newer rollercoasters that have been built since then, this rollercoaster is a must see because of the sheer fun it provides. The creaking of the wood is normal and part of the thrill.

The park also features other rides such as the Water Flume, Top Spin, Power Surge, etc. They also have kiddie rides.

I have lived in Brookyln my whole life, and have visited Coney Island and the amusement park several times. The park isn't the best park ever....but it's worth a visit. Besides, would you rather waste a Saturday afternoon, or at least hang out at the beach, check out some rides, and have a good time?. Coney Island is a good place to visit. I also recommend this place. I have visited this place so many times, and I don't think I'll stop any time soon. ;)

Before I even read the top 10 amusement Parks, I thought of Coney Island, the Coney island of my youth, and when i saw it was rated number 1, I was very surprised, but happy at the same time, no its not Disney or Great adventure, but if your local it is a great place to make memories.

Astroland is a classic, and like a classic movie or a classic car it doesn't have all the new special effects or the state-of-the art engine. But somehow the classic "feel" fills the gap. If you are looking for thrills, believe me when I tell you the Cyclone is scary enough, being that old. The attractions are so original, that they are being copied to this day, like in the show CARNIVALE, where all the scenery and themes are straight from Astroland (Used to be home to world famous showman Indian Larry (RIP)). You got the Brooklyn Cyclones playing next door, and the world-famous Brighton Beach sprawled alongside the park, not to mention the aquarium. So grab the kids, the girl, or the friend, whichever suits you, and head on over to ASTROLAND!!!! (oh yeah, if you get on the huge "impossible-to-miss" ferris wheel, take the swinging cars,....it'll be more...umm...FUN!)

I have been going to Coney since the late fifties It was great then. Slowly it deteriorated, until Tilyou closed Steeplechase sold it to Trump who wanted to tear down everything It didn't work and he sold it to NYC. The dingy old Coney like the one in the Warriors movie was just about finished. The Cyclone was bought by NYC to tear down and extend the Aquarium ; purtist fought and saved it as a landmark. 25 years later it is the mjor attraction and still the best damn coaster in America, The first drop is the greatest period Major air time . Coney is definetly seeing a revival Very diverse culture as Little Odessa is now being felt. There is even plans to revive the old Surf Avenue trolley line Go to the beach get some sun eat some salt water taffy and enjoy the rides.

Coney Island as #1 in the COUNTRY?! PLEASE! I lived in CI for about 10 years (as a kid and teenager) and ummmmmmmmm it has A LOT to be desired! Ok yes it has history, so does Hershey Park, it doesn't warrant it being the #1 park. I agree with the Reviewees who suggest getting OUTSIDE of NY (and hilariously put by one "outside of the subway" lol) Also, those that "judged" these parks, did you ever ride the Cyclone? I thought my da*n heart was going to explode because they REFUSE to renovate that ride based on it's history. As you creep your way up you hear EVERY single damaged plank. Please people do your research; obviously someone needs to get out more.

Some people are missing the point about Astroland/Cyclone. Yes, if you compare this park with ones of today, it doesn't compare. However, riding the Cyclone, that people of your Great Grandparent's were in this park and rode, is amazing. It's still a great rollercoaster, and it's a part of the history of NY and of the country. This location once had 3 parks, world famous and THE place to go. There's the "Parachute Drop" used in the 1939 World's Fair. Six flags will not have that. Beach, baseball and the original Nathan's, that is also visiting history. And they're still great hot dogs !!! So bring the kids, ride on the most famous roller coaster in the world, swim in the Atlantic, lunch at Nathan's and go see a baseball game. Dream of the generations for a 100 years that did the same thing, and be a part of history.......

Pros: Historical, Varied activities

Cons: Small, Not the cleanest, Lack of "Big Rides"

.

I wouldn't quite call it the worlds best (and I'm from Brooklyn!) but Coney Island is certainly worth a trip for the overall effect. The rides are mostly T-rated (for toddlers), but the combo of the sand, sea, and Nathan's Famous is hard to match. No, it ain't Six Flags but, after 40 years, I still find it more enthralling than all the "Disney-fied" theme parks (which it may soon become, much to my chagrin)

Maybe on a sentimental value Coney Island is #1. but in competition with today's amusement parks it is somewhere near circus novelty.

You have got to be kidding! One of the best theme parks in the country? Number one? Yes, the old Cyclone is special, but if someone traveled many miles to go to Astroland based on your rating, they would be VERY disappointed. It's okay as a local New York trip for New York area residents or someone visiting for other reasons, but all in all not worth a lot of effort. Besides, many parks around the country have old, wooden roller coasters plus a whole lot more to offer. You must be pandering to New York City is all I can say.

I can understand that not so great post that was writen , Coney Island aint like other amusement parks, its alot special then great adventure history wise or any other amusement park, doesnt have alot of big rides etc etc like other places. Its special place and diff. some people wont understand really , thats of coarse understandable. There improving coney and in few years it will be a place where alot of people would like to go visit then as it is now. Still nice to see it change shape, has a beach and the rides arent horrible just not alot of them, there lots of games, keyspan park baseball stadium near by to catch brooklyn cyclones game, and for now it will do, its what brooklyn has and as i'll say again its improving. Still has way to go

I am writing this is in rebuttal to the editorial review and the person who thinks this is the greatest amusement park in the country. Well I am here to tell you these people are out of their minds! Having recently been to Six Flags Los Angeles, not to mention the dozen or so amusement parks i have visited in my life, this park is barely above state fair caliber. These people have clearly not been outside of New York and need to sample some of this great countrys theme parks. Let me mention a few of the greats, THE BEAST, THE MELLENIUM, THE GOLIATH, TOP THRILL DRAGSTER, THE BIG SHOT and the VIPER just to name a few. If you havent heard of any of these maybe you should leave the subway behind for a few days and find out what a real amusement park is like!

Though this is no Six Flags it certainly can fill a day of fun for the kids. Adults may get bored quickly since there are two areas of kiddie rides and only one or two major rides for adults. I usually take the kids to the NY Aquarium next door and enjoy the evening on the rides this way everyone is happy (adults & children).

Taking a ride or two on The Cyclone is worth the trip out here (and it's a pretty long ride on the subway). The Cyclone is the best of the old-style coasters -- built on wooden planks -- and the ride is rickety almost to the point of being scary.

Apart from the the Cyclone and the Wonderwheel, most of the rides here are of the street-fair variety. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but Astroland is no Great Adventure on the Boardwalk. The Cyclone is one of the world's scariest rollercoasters, largely because it's made out of rickety, 75-year-old wood. You definitely have to try it at least once in your life--just not on opening day.
