Coney Island (Luna Park / Deno's) Development Discussion Thread in Theme Parks, Roller Coasters, & Donkeys! Posted February 4, 2012 I'm also conflicted. I'm planning to finally ride it in June, and I wanted to experience it in all of it's rough/wild/classic glory. However, I'm sure GCI will do a great job, and the ride will be less painful than it is now, from the reports that I've heard. I hope the refurbishments can be done in a way that makes the experience more pleasant without sacrificing any of the unique and classic elements.
