Enter the Scream Zone

23 Apr

Last Summer at Coney Island – the DVD – officially goes on sale this week. And to celebrate, Luna Park is opening a second location in Coney Island called THE SCREAM ZONE. I got to attend the grand opening the other day and it was nothing short of surreal. First, you have a space in a familiar area that has been utterly transformed, second you add dignitaries like Michael Bloomberg and Marty Markowitz (doing a banter routine that I always feel like I’ve seen before), thirdly there are futuristic looking contraptions shooting people 200 feet into the air, and then you’ve got a lot of Italians walking around, thanks to Zamperla, which operates Luna Park and designs many of the rides. I defy anyone to NOT feel like they’re in a Fellini movie!
