Coney Island, Brooklyn: 15 reviews and 11 photos

  View of the beach and park from the Wonder Wheel

Okay, I'll admit it...I was a little nervous on this ride the first time. The outside cars move back and forth and it looks like you will slide right off - or you'll hit one of the stationary cars. You get some of the most amazing views from this ride....the beach, the people, the zipper, the kiddie rides, the boardwalk...it's all so cool. You don't have to share a car with anyone else, and I've heard some couples have taken that opportunity to become engaged.
