Luna Park at Coney Island fixing about $8 million of damage from Sandy

Posted Wednesday, January 16, 2013 9:45 AM | Contributed by VitaminsAndGravy

Amusement park workers recently stood on the steep drop of the Cyclone, as they laid down 600 feet of new track for the famed roller coaster. Others inspected the motors of cars on Luna Park rides. The Coney Island season starts in less than 10 weeks, but there is more than just winter maintenance being done there. They also need to rebuild from Hurricane Sandy.

How did any of these rides that were flooded survive? Salt water destroys engines instantly. I didn't hear much about damage to Luna after Sandy hit, though I do know that Brooklyn was the most damaged of boroughs.

Edit: Actually I guess Staten Island was the most damaged. But with Coney Island right on the waterfront, I don't see how it could have escaped damage nonetheless.

Rides generally don't have engines.
