A Day at Coney Island

On this outdoor outing, we will have a day of fun at the beach and boardwalk at famous Coney Island!

Coney Island is a popular destination for locals in New York City and is located at the end of Brooklyn on the Atlantic Ocean.  It is well known for its amusement parks as well as its beach and boardwalk.  Some of its popular attractions include:  Beach and the Boardwalk, New York Aquarium ($9.95), Cyclone Rollercoaster, Sideshow by the Seashore ($10), and several amusement parks (Deno’s World, Scream Zone, Luna Park, and Polar Express).

There are also many games, shops, restaurants located at Coney Island.  We will eat lunch upon arrival to Coney Island.  After eating lunch, we will venture either as a whole group or break into small groups. 

Important Note: The cost of rides at Coney Island ranges from 3 – 10 credits.  Credits are worth $1 per credit.

 

*A detailed itinerary will be emailed one week before the date of the trip.

-We will meet at the White Marsh Park and Ride.  I will take a MegaBus from Washington, DC and meet you all when it arrives at the White Marsh Park and Ride.  I will provide my contact number several days before the trip begins.

      I'm from NY, and FYI, this is where Beyonce filmed her Drunk in Love and XO videos :-D...The Drunk in Love is on the beach. Coney Island is the part of Brooklyn where the themed park "Astroland Park" is....But we just call it Coney Island. :)

      Hello Christopher. There is a 9:00AM-1:30PM bus leaving from Union Station in DC if you're interested. If this doesn't work, take the 10:50AM bus from Baltimore and give me call when you arrive so I can give you directions. I will send a final e-mail tonight with important instructions.
