Kaufman family's Torture Chamber

Dear Mr. Coney Island...
I grew up in Coney island...and although I was little I remember being terrified by one of the side show windows that had a giant elephant stepping on a little Indian boy... do you have any info on what that place was?  Thanks!

Hello Candice,

The bizarre attraction you remember was the Kaufman family's Torture Chamber exhibit in the Lido Hotel on Surf Avenue at West 12th Street. A visit to the chamber was sure to cause nightmares!
