Coney Island, Milsons Point

Coney Island is part of the Luna Park amusement park, in the north shore suburb of Milsons Point. Coney Island Funny Land is a fun house which opened in 1935. It features such classic amusements as the Turkey Trot, Barrel of Laughs, Giant Slides and the Wonky Walk. This art deco building is also used as a venue for functions.

  1. This seems to be a bit of a British tradition that didn't travel to Canada, unfortunately. Lovely looking building.

    1. Interesting, Leslie. I thought it was an American tradition because they used the Coney Island name but it hadn't occurred to me that they both followed the British tradition of amusement parks.
