Today’s Photo

The Wonder Wheel

Back to Coney Island. The 150 foot Wonder Wheel was built in 1920 and remains fully functional on its original site. The best part is to get a seat on one of the rolling cars on the inside of the wheel. The cars slide on a rail system as the big wheel rotates.  Its been a long time since my last ride and on Friday I was completely unprepared for the first slide as the wheel rose on its first turn. 3D is the big technology in entertainment today but there is nothing like the real thing.

    I visited Coney Island in winter! It was so creepy to see it all shut down, boarded up and covered in snow. I posted about it here.

    I would love to come back some day in the warmer months.

    I must say, your photo is much happier and way less creepy! I really like it.
