Visit Luna Park on Opening Day for Just $5

A small donation gets you access to all the rides!

Luna Park just made a huge announcement that will surely make Coney Island lovers smile. On opening day the park will offer free admission for the first time ever! The park is asking for a minimum donation of $5 and visitors will receive a wrist band and have access to all of the park's rides.

The $5 will go to a great cause, too! This year the park is partnering with The Mayor's Fund to Advance NYC and 90% of the proceeds will go to  Girl Scout Troop 6000. This troop is dedicated to supporting girls who live in New York City's shelter system.

Opening day is Saturday March 24 at 11am.

“We are excited to offer free admission to all park goers this year in exchange for a donation to Troop 6000,” said Fernando Velasquez, general manager of Central Amusement International, said in a statement. “Opening Day signals the beginning of the summer season, and it will be especially fun this year as we help to support girls throughout the city.”

“We’re incredibly excited to partner with Luna park in kicking off their 2018 season. For generations, the opening of amusements at Coney Island has heralded a season of fun for children across the City. We’re thrilled that the start of this season will do so much to support some of New York City’s most inspiring young people – the girls of Troop 6000,” said Darren Bloch, executive director of the Mayor’s Fund, said in a statement. “I thank the leadership of Luna Park for their support and service to Brooklyn and our entire city.”

Additionally on Sunday March 25, the annual Egg Cream Christening will happen at 11:30am. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, local stakeholders, and elected officials will kick off the event. The first 150 guests will receive a free egg cream provided by the Brooklyn Seltzer Boys.

Luna Park will also offer free rides on the Cyclone to the first 100 guests who meet the ride's requirements. It is asking guests to use the hashtag #JoinThe100.

The opening of Luna Park means we are all that much closer to summer!

Luna Park is located at 1000 Surf Ave., Coney Island. For more information visit
