New York City’s Department of Parks & Recreation put out bids for the third time in hopes of bringing adventurous and quite unsafe attractions to the Coney Island beach. The banana boats that were previously considered are not on the list per-se but will still be welcomed. The last proposals by the city were in 2005 and again in 2007 to no avail.

The NY Daily News reports:
Parks Department officials began soliciting bids Wednesday for a Beach Adventure park on the sand near Steeplechase Pier that could also include giant inflatable slides, trampolines, climbing walls and trapeze swings.
"We want the biggest, baddest inflatable rides you've ever seen," said Brooklyn Parks Commissioner Julius Spiegel to the NY Daily News.
Why not? Inflatables are hot items thanks to Thor Equities!
