It’s official! The “I’m LUNAtic Campaign” kicked into high gear at today’s opening ceremony of Coney Island’s newest amusement park. Best photo op: Luna Park operator Alberto Zamperla was joined by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, City Councilman Domenic Recchia and Coney Island Development Corp President Lynn Kelly for a sitdown on the Electro-Spin aka the Disk’O. Jon Benguiat of the Borough President’s Office, Seth Pinsky and Robert Lieber of the EDC, the Italian Consul, a Ringling Bros. clown and the Wonder Wheel stand behind them.

The new park is a project of Central Amusement International (CAI), which received a 10-year contract to build and operate the park on city-owned land in Coney Island. “Millions of people, here in Brooklyn and around the world, are crazy about Coney Island,” said Valerio Ferrari, president of CAI. “These are the LUNAtics, and come May 29th, we open our gates to them.” Thank you to Charles Denson of the Coney Island History Project for providing us with this wonderfully LUNAtic photo.
