The book begins by delving into the history of Coney Island, the seaside resort that was once America's most celebrated amusement centre, home of such legendary rides as the Cyclone and Thunderbolt roller coasters and the huge Wonder Wheel. Coney Island is the home of the amusement park and the modern roller coaster.

The second part of the book is a contemporary visit to Coney Island to see what remains of the place. Wandering about, the author looks for antiquities, talks with old timers and explores the Boardwalk and surviving amusements.

This is a fascinating account of the legendary funspot.
