  7. Luna Park

*edit* There has been some questions about the park name and dates, so for clarification: Luna Park is the name of two amusement parks. The first amusement park at Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York City from 1903 to 1944. A second Luna Park was opened on the former site of the nearby Astroland amusement park, and opened on May 29, 2010.
