For Bensonhurst native Marie Martorano, a trip to Coney Island with her brother for Nathan's and Spook-A-Rama evokes childhood memories of riding the classic dark ride and the Wonder Wheel's swinging cars. "I'm so glad it's still here, It just brings you back in time," she says of Spook-A-Rama, which is part of Deno's Wonder Wheel Park. Martorano also recalls adopting a puppy at Murray Zaret's Animal Nursery and playing the arcade game Fascination in the 1970s.
