Dante's Inferno

Dear Mr. Coney Island...
Was there ever a Dante's Inferno haunted house or ride at Coney Island?  Someone has told me that there was.  If so, is there a good reference book to use in trying to track it down?  Or a good website?

Dante's Inferno was located on the midway at Astroland Park. The ride was dismantled when Astroland closed and is currently in storage. For more dark ride information try Laff in the Dark, the ultimate website about dark rides.




There is a similar ride at Morey's Pier in Wildwood, NJ installed in 1981. it was redone and renamed Dante's Dungeon about 15 years ago, losing the glowing letters on the top. I wish Astroland would sold it to another park, like Rye Playland or if Luna could have kept it. At least it's in storage and not in a landfill.
