BROOKLYN - The remodeled Parachute Jump was unveiled tonight at Luna Park in Coney Island, with the New York skyline and a fireworks celebration as a backdrop.

The Parachute Jump is being called the “Eiffel Tower of Brooklyn.”

The 270-foot attraction was illuminated with more than 8,000 LED lights.

Music features have also been added to turn the attraction into a “dancing lights” event.

The signature attraction is not a functioning ride and hasn’t been for decades, but owners say, “It’s a way to make the Parachute Jump a real attraction again here in Coney Island.”
