Most People Don’t Know The History Of Washington’s Coney Island

Imagine if Washington State had its own Coney Island theme park… the roller coaster, the carnival games, the circus acts, all of it. Wouldn’t it be amazing? The truth is, we did have a “Coney Island” here for a brief moment in time. From 1907 to 1913, an amusement park in West Seattle kept locals and tourists entertained. It was called Luna Park, and it was named after Coney Island’s Luna Park.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Do you wish Luna Park had survived? You may not be able to explore Washington’s Coney Island, but you can still visit one of our oldest towns for your history fix.
