BROOKLYN - Deno's Wonderwheel Park is officially open for the season in spite of the seemingly insurmountable damage left by Hurricane Sandy.

All of the park's 22 rides are up and running and park-goers say it seems as if Sandy never happened. They say it's just like the Coney Island they know and love.

Many of the rides sustained water and electrical damage, and some even had to be completely redesigned. Given that the park is a family owned business, all of the repairs put the owners in more than $500,000 worth of debt. 

The park will be open all week for spring break, and will be open seven days a week starting on Memorial Day.
