Coney turns 123 years old

Recommended Posts

June 21st is Coney`s birthday. It is 123 years old this year!

Back in 1886, James Parker sold his apple orchard in March to the Ohio Grove Corporation for $17,500. They made improvements to the property and opened "Ohio Grove: The Coney Island of the West" on a rainy June 21st, 1886. The following year, the Ohio Grove name was dropped and the park was simply "Coney Island."

Happy Birthday Coney Island!

Yep. Today was a rather slow day on the rides side at Coney, but the pool had a very busy day.

I also enjoyed the air conditioning in the ticket booth for early shift, even though I do not particularly like working the ticket booth.
