Coney Beach

Set beside the beautiful Porthcawl beach, Coney Beach was named after one of the the most famous of all amusement centres, Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York City.

The park was formed in 1918 and a wooden Figure Eight roller coaster was opened in 1920. 

Water Chute rides were popular throughout the UK during the mid 20th century and Coney Beach opened its own in 1932, it continued to provide stellar service until a fatal accident in 1994.

Although most of the park’s permanent attractions have now gone, a vast number of rides continue to operate at the same site under the Coney Beach name.
