What's new for Coney in 2015?

NY1 excerpt -

So what are the new attractions this year? Eight new rides - three at Deno's Wonder Wheel Park, the rest at Luna Park. There are also new places to eat. Checkers is opening by the Stillwell Avenue train station, and a Wahlburgers is on the way. The celebrity brothers who founded the restaurant will even feature this new eatery on their show on A&E.  

"That'll actually be part of their reality show. They're working it into the story of the show," Zaki said. "So we're very excited about that." 

There's also excitement about Coney Island becoming a year-round destination. A new semi-pro football team debuted in the fall, and there was the first New Year's Eve celebration. 

"This is extraordinary for an area that has been known for being a seasonal destination," Bliss said.
