If visiting Coney Island has long been on your list of NYC to-dos, this weekend might be the best weekend to head down to the famed beach and boardwalk. On top of what will be gorgeous weather, per the Coney Island Blog, the amusement park’s iconic wooden roller coaster will be offering FREE rides to 89 thrill-seekers. The roller coaster, which normally costs $10 a go, will kick off its promo Sunday at noon in celebration of its 89th birthday (it opened June 26, 1927). So hold onto your hats—and your lunches—and be sure to take some time to absorb the history of this inimitable destination.
