Some of the downright sketchiness of Coney Island is gone, sure, and that's a real loss, but developers of the new Luna Park have added a bunch of new rides there to stand alongside (or a few blocks down from) the venerable Cyclone, including a go-cart track, the Sling Shot (a contraption that rubber-bands you way up into the air), and the Boardwalk Flight (essentially a giant swing). We had some skepticism about this place when it opened, but eventually, it won us over, even if we still miss the old Coney. 1000 Surf Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-373-5862, lunaparknyc.com (11224)
