BROOKLYN. Coney Island is getting its groove back and aiming to challenge Greenwich Village as the place to be this Halloween.


The iconic seaside amusement district drew 400,000 visitors this summer — its biggest crowd since Steeplechase Park closed in 1964, city officials said. The new Luna Park plans to continue the fun by extending its season by three weeks and debuting the “Nights of Horror,” an interactive goosebump-inducing haunted maze.


It will run weekends through Oct. 31, when the area hosts its first children’s Halloween parade.
