Your Last Chance To Ride The Nostalgic Rides At Coney Island In Cincinnati Is This Saturday
Many iconic places around Cincinnati have changed over the years, as change is inevitable. If you’ve lived in the Queen City for awhile, you likely have memories of visiting Coney Island in Cincinnati, or taking your children there, and riding the nostalgic rides. You may have heard that the park has decided to remove the rides and focus on the water attractions, which are also popular. This news was met with some resistance, as you may imagine, but you do have one more chance to check out these classic rides. This Saturday, September 21st, Coney Island is hosting Fire Up The Night and it’s the perfect opportunity to take one last spin, dip, and swing on the rides, as well as catch a magnificent fireworks display and competition.
