Play hooky on a Friday for fun and thrills @ Coney Island!

***Please RSVP only if you are certain you can attend and AFTER you have purchased your Groupon deal (link below). Since we'd like to go on a lot of rides, this will be more fun if everyone participates in riding at least some of them with us. You can choose the $19 option which includes 4 hours of unlimited rides (exc. extreme thrill rides); OR the $29 option which includes the unlimited rides, plus a ride on the historic Cyclone rollercoaster, the Raceway go-kart race track, and a $9 game credit. We've bought the 2nd option because we definitely want to ride the cyclone anyway and the cyclone itself without a deal is already $9. You will be moved up from the waitlist once you let us know you've purchased your deal. Thanks.***

We'll be doing this on a Friday afternoon in order to avoid the long lines on Friday nights and weekends ^_^.

It's still six weeks away so plan ahead. Take a day off and be a kid again ;-)!!

By the way, I'm looking for someone or a couple of people to do the Boardwalk Flight "extreme thrill ride" (2nd to last photo on this page) with me after the regular rides since Eddie's too scared :-P.

Groupon deal can be found here.  Expires soon!

    After conquering zenobio, slingshot, and boardwalk flight I don't know what else Luna Park can offer up to me as a challenge. I feel a bit empty inside now plus I think I'm turning Japanese.

    • Eddie C

      If only you could fill that emptiness Marcos, perhaps you wouldn't feel the need to offend our Japanese members;) Not everyone is well versed in kitschy 80s pop.

    Everyone, we're meeting at the Parachute Jump ride on the boardwalk at 12pm. You'll definitely be able to see this tall structure from a distance but see the pic to make sure you know what to look for: http://macaulay.cuny.edu/eportfolios/berger2011/files/2011/05/Coney_island_parachute_jump_2-225x300.jpg. As Eddie said, please arrive on time with your vouchers and remember to call or text us instead of posting messages here because we may not be able to see them later. Thanks and see you soon :-)!

  • Eddie C

    An email has been sent out with our contact info. If you did not receive it, message Ro or Eddie. I love referring to myself in the third person. We will meet tomorrow in front of the old Parachute Ride (the one not in use) on the boardwalk at 12pm. You will see it off to your right as you're approaching the boardwalk, if you're coming from the train.

    Hi All,
    I have missed you all. Allergy season has treated me very badly this year. I have purchased my Groupon ticket for the Coney Island event.

      May 20

  • Ro

    To everyone who's still on the waitlist, if you're serious about attending, as of now the Groupon deal is still up but will be over in 1 day and 14 hours so please purchase it asap. Not sure if it'll be renewed this time. Thanks.

    are we going to eat Nathan's hot dog and sit by the ocean after the rides? or will there be surprise fireworks, like there was last year?

    1 · May 18

    • Ro

      Not sure about fireworks but sure we can sit on the beach and eat Nathan's or whatever everyone feels like. :-)

      1 · May 18

      It wouldn't be a trip to Coney Island without a Nathan's hotdog.

      Oh btw, can you put a photo on your meetup profile? We recommend you use an actual picture of yourself, but if you're not comfortable with that, then a photo of something that represents you best will suffice. Thanks :)

      May 11

    • Ro

      Also, have you purchased the Groupon? I and several others chose the $29 which also includes a ride on the cyclone, raceway, and $9 in game credits.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
