Zamperla USA, the company tapped last week to be Coney Island’s new amusement park operator, is bringing Luna Park back to Brooklyn. Luna Park was the name of one of Coney Island’s four historic amusement parks; the original was there between 1903 and 1946. Zamperla’s new Luna Park will span three plots of land between the former Astroland site and Keyspan Park and will welcome an estimated 400,000 visitors for the first season, which opens Memorial Day weekend, Alberto Zamperla told his hometown newspaper in Italy. He takes over the site April 15 and plans to invest $24 million over three years. [Amusing the Zillion]
