A nice little film to bring us back to the great summers experienced by the visitors of 1930's Coney. A warm reminder, especially now, during the middle of winter. If you're patient - towards the end of the video, you can see some more really rare images of some of the rides back then. Those wild rides and attractions were surely the thing that made Coney goers enthralled and fascinated with so much fun and excitement.
