Coney Island opened its first roller coaster, called Dip The Dips, in 1911. That was just one milestone in a long history of fun attractions at the park where Walt Disney used to visit to get ideas for Disneyland.
Now, 108 years later, the rides at the popular east-side, Ohio River landmark are just memories. Coney closed its rides for good Saturday on the last day of the park season. When it reopens next spring, it will be a water park only.
