February 16, 2010 01:24PM

Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Central Amusement International today
unveiled the new Coney Island expansion plan for summer 2010, which
includes the addition of 23 new rides. CAI, which was recently tapped to lease the site
from the city and operate the amusement park, has signed a 10-year
deal with the city and plans to invest around $30 million on the park,
according to the mayor’s office. The first portion of the incremental
expansion will be called “Luna Park at Coney Island,” which will
include 19 of the 23 new rides, while the second portion of the
expansion project is set to open in summer 2011. The total Coney Island
expansion is expected to create 300 full- and part-time jobs by 2011. TRD
