Know what dad REALLY wants on Father’s Day…Bacon!

So, it’s Coney Island to the rescue…the 2nd annual Bacon Fest at Coney, brought to you by Yuengling, is Father’s Day, Sunday, June 21, a sizzling family event celebrating the wonders of bacon and all of its incredible incarnations.

Of course, Coney’s iconic Sunlite Pool will be open as well as the park’s incredible collection of classic rides – including this season’s two new rides TopSpin, a fun swinging-pendulum family thrill ride, and Fender Benders, a kiddie bumper car ride that puts little ones in the driver’s seat.
