In the 1800’s Coney Island was the place everyone from Manhattan went for vacations!  It became famous worldwide because of it’s amusement parks and rides but then fell into decay!  Today Coney island is back and  a better than ever.  Join us for this fun day where we will send you on an amazing journey through history while you socialize and explore!  To top it off you can stay after the scavenger hunt for the famous Coney Island Mermaid Parade!

Here is how it works:

-Registration will be at Ruby’s Bar on the boardwalk at 11am.  Grab a drink have some clams, socialize then set out for the hunt.

-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 returning to Ruby’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.
