Coney Island Attraction Locked Down

August 21, 2009 at 7:43 pm Leave a comment

The real estate firm Thor Equities closed today the Dreamland amusement park at Coney Island, Brooklyn due to missed rent payments.

Sources tell NY1 that Dreamland, which began occupying the former site of Astroland this year, paid $30,000 in rent but owes another $600,000.

The historical Cyclone roller coaster, which is run by the city, and the privately-owned Deno’s Wonder Wheel are still running.


Thor Equities says Dreamland will be reopened as soon the debts are paid.
