You're invited to the 31st Annual "Blessing of the Rides" at Deno's Wonder Wheel Park on March 26, 2016, Coney Island's Opening Day. FREE RIDES for 300 kids from the local Salt N Sea Mission. Plus FREE RIDES on Deno's Wonder Wheel to the first 96 people in celebration of the Wheel's 96th Year!
Honoring Pastor Debbe Santiago, the Blessing of the Rides tradition continues this year with over 300 kids from the Salt N Sea Mission enjoying free rides until 1:00pm at Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park as part of Opening Day Festivities.
The Vourderis Family is deeply saddened by the loss of our lifelong friend, Debbe Santiago. For over 30 years, she has blessed our rides, our community, and our hearts before the start of every summer season. She will be missed, and we know she will be watching over all of Coney Island because that's where her love lived and benefited us all. .
Continuing a wonderful family tradition, Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park opens the 2016 season with a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by park owners, Dennis & Steve Vourderis.
