1932 Video of Coney Island’s Steeplechase Park – British Pathe

Coney Island’s Steeplechase Park was an amazing place to visit and play. Here is a video from the British Pathe archives of that wonderful park and some of the rides that it provided. Also, at Luna Park we see Victor Zacchini -The Human Canonball- get fired out of a canon as part of the season’s outdoor show.

See all the British Pathe Newsreels now available on YouTube here.
