A Long Story of Luna Park (Coney Island)

The amusement parks of Coney Island combined the success of the world’s fairs and expositions to create a sense of escapism from everyday life. Dreamland, the third of Coney Island’s main amusement parks, opened in 1904,
was a corporate-motivated venture. Dreamland was the utopian model of an ideal city with amusements and attractions that condensed selected nations of the world into individual pavilions. Although mimicking the successes of its predecessor, Luna Park, Dreamland combined and referenced the neoclassical idea of the city explored in previous world’s fairs. Coney Island and the world’s fairs were test beds for the ideal city. Their pavilions were the instruments of these utopian experiments. As Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas proposes in Delirious New York: A Retroactive Manifesto for Manhattan: “Coney Island is the incubator for Manhattan’s incipient themes and infant mythology. The strategies and mechanisms that later shape Manhattan are tested in the laboratory of Coney Island.”

Not only the park, but beaches

The Luna Park at Coney island has had its very long story before colorful crescents and windmill circles covered the entrance. After failing to acquire the original 250-foot diameter revolving wheel designed by George Ferris for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, George C. Tilyou built a smaller 125-foot diameter Ferris wheel on Coney Island in 1894. Tilyou later built Steeplechase Park in 1897, which remained a landmark Coney Island attraction until it was demolished in 1964. In 1902, Tilyou arranged for Frederic Thomson and Elmer Dundy to bring to Steeplechase Park their extremely popular “A Trip to the Moon” exhibition, built for the 1901 Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York. Flush with this success, Thomson and Dundy opened their own Luna Park in 1903. The pair poured every dime they could scavenge or borrow into the park, and barely had enough cash remaining to make change for the opening day ticket sales. Nonetheless, the park was such a resounding success that they recouped their investment in only a few weeks. Thomson and Dundy would later build the Hippodrome, New York’s largest theater, where massive pageants and spectacles were staged before audiences of up to 5,200 people.

For “A Trip to the Moon”, guests rode suspended indoor gondolas in the dark, past an unspooling panoramic painting showing first the liftoff from Luna Park, then the New York skyline, and then the Earth itself receding into the distance. Guests would disembark once reaching the moon, where they were entertained by costumed dwarfs while strolling through a faux lunar landscape. Guests were even offered bites of green cheese upon exiting. The ride was later upgraded to “A Trip to Mars,” and replaced again with other attractions over the years. At the turn of the prior century, when leisure time and disposable income were in short supply, the great Coney Island parks provided one of the few sources of inexpensive mass entertainment. While most New Yorkers were unable to afford vacation or travel, factory workers, recent immigrants, and other socially disadvantaged groups could still save their nickels and lose themselves for a day at Coney Island. As other entertainment options captured the public’s attention, including the movies (and later radio), amusement parks lost their preeminence during the 1920s. Luna Park was hit hard by the Depression, went bankrupt for a time in 1933, and struggled thereafter for years until closing in 1944, following a disastrous fire. Low-income apartments now stand on the Luna Park site.
