Wonder Wheel Park Opening Day

You’re invited to the 31st Annual “Blessing of the Rides” at Deno’s Wonder Wheel Park on Coney Island’s Opening Day, Sunday March 20th at 11:00am. Honoring Pastor Debbe Santiago, the Blessing of the Rides tradition continues this year with 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 landmark Wheel’s 96th Year! The rides open at 11:30 immediately following the Blessing and a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by park owners, Dennis & Steve Vourderis.

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.
