In the 1800s, Coney Island was the place everyone from Manhattan went to for vacations!  It became famous worldwide because of its amusement parks and rides but then fell into decay.  Today, Coney Island is back and better than ever.  Join us for this fun Friday evening where we will send you on an amazing journey through history while you socialize and explore!  At the end of the Scavenger Hunt you will be treated to a free fireworks display!

How does it work?

  • Meet the group in front of Ruby’s Bar on the Boardwalk at 7:30pm sharp.   We will make up teams and send you on the hunt at 7:45pm sharp!  At 9:30pm there will be a huge fireworks display.  After the fireworks you can leave or hang with members of the group and play games or go on rides.
  • Come alone or bring a friend.  We will put you on a team with other fun people if you do not have a team.
  • The group will have 75 minutes to find as many clues as they can before meeting at Ruby’s on the Boardwalk (next door to Nathan’s!) for food and drinks while we tally up the points and announce the winners!
  • Groups will be looking for historic and contemporary information in and around the boardwalk.
  • Following the scavenger hunt you’re invited to stay for the awards for the winning teams plus food and drinks at Ruby’s for the fireworks.

Cost: $30 general members / $20 VIP members.  Includes scavenger hunt only.
