Greetings,

We have done a forum update that changed and added a lot of new and exciting features. During this update, we had to remove and rebuild the KICentral themes "Bright" and "Dark." Therefore your theme selection has been reset and you will need to reselect your theme again.

Need Coney Island Video! Help!

Recommended Posts

I teach a high school elective course on Cincinnati History at Harrison HS.  I do a fun unit on parks and recreation in Cincinnati that includes a section about Coney Island.  Last year, I found a wonderful hour long documentary on Coney Island. I have dug and dug looking for that video and I cannot find anything.

 

It is NOT the Cincinnati Reflections with Nick Clooney.  This video was much better than that one.  If anyone has any info on where I can find it online or where it can be purchased etc...    

 

Thanks

Here is a video from International Theme Park Services (its fourteen minutes long):

And here is a video that Coney posted with historical footage from 1937-1956:

And then there is this video (which is an hour and a half long) detailing the history of how Coney grew into Kings Island. It includes footage from Coney, and interviews from Gary Wachs, whose family owned Coney Island.

I hope that helps. There used to be another video I think on Coney, but can`t seem to find it right now. Let me know if you have any questions about Coney Island. I have worked there for twelve years.

I think the video you are looking for is Greetings From Coney Island , it has since been pulled from youtube but thankfully I downloaded it and can put it back on youtube if you would like.

You can still purchase it at the Administration Building. I bought one for a Christmas present for my brother.

By the way, has anyone ever found Coney Island: Relive the Magic?

It is a documentary filmed in the 80's by WCET.

Several members have been looking for it for about a decade now with no luck.

If someone has a copy, maybe upload it to YouTube?

Thanks,

Planned on showing the Greetings from Coney Island to my students today as part of a unit on Parks and Recreation in Cincinnati.  Came in this AM and Greetings from Coney Island was nowhere to be seen....    I am going to call Coney Administration Building and see about ordering a copy of the DVD.   

 

In the meantime..if anyone has downloaded a copy of the video and can figure out how I can get to a copy to watch it. Here is my email.  Thanks
