Coney Island's soon-to-be 100-year-old Deno's Wonder Wheel and other rides are closed till spring but you can enjoy the Coney Island History Project's weekend walking tours year-round. Ticket fees help support our 501c3 nonprofit's free exhibition center and oral history program.
Tours are based on History Project director Charles Denson's award-winning book Coney Island: Lost and Found, the interviews from our Oral History Archive, and other primary sources. Visit our online reservation page on Eventbrite to see the walking tour schedule and purchase advance tickets online. Tickets for the 1-1/2 hour, wheelchair accessible tours are $25.
All Coney Island History Project walking tours are weather permitting. If a tour is cancelled due to the weather forecast, ticket orders will be refunded. If you have a question or you would like to schedule a private tour or group visit, please email events [AT] coneyislandhistory [DOT] org.
