    Zamperla will use the amusement park as an experimental showcase for new ride technologies, while majorly renovating Astroland's world famous Manhattan Wonder Wheel and Cyclone roller coaster. As well as integrating new themed Zamperla rides such as the confirmed Giant Discovery, Mega Disk'O and Air Force junior suspended roller coaster.

    The new "Luna Park at Coney Island" is scheduled to open summer 2011.
