History:

The amusement park industry has had several legendary parks during its history - parks that are held in special esteem and looked upon with fond memories or special reverence. Riverview, Euclid Beach and Palisades are few that come to mind, but the one on the top of nearly everyone's list is almost sure to be Coney Island. Coney Island is unique as it not only was the name of the New York resort that was the center of the amusement park universe in the early part of the century, but also the name of the famed amusement park in Cincinnati, OH, which is regarded by many as one of the best operated amusement parks in history.

Cincinnati's Coney Island is also holds a unique place in the industry as one of the few parks to "close" because of its success, and unlike most of other parks that close, refused to die and is still entertaining visitors to this day.
