Transit time from 14th street in Manhattan: 50 minutes.

EARLY BIRD GAME DAY OFFER: you can also buy a $20 ticket on Friday or on bout day before 4pm at Lola Star (while supplies last). Lola Star has two boutique locations: one on the boardwalk near 12th street (pictured above), and one in the subway station.

LUNA PARK - "ALL YOU CAN RIDE" DISCOUNT
Fact: derby fans love amusement park rides.
At tomorrow's bout, Gotham fans have an opportunity to buy an ALL-YOU-CAN-RIDE Luna Card voucher, good for any four hour stretch at Luna Park this summer, including bout night.
The bouts end at appx 8:30 -- hit Luna Park afterward to ride the Slingshot, the Soarin' Eagle, the Steeplechase, and the Brooklyn Flyer! Check out the many rides and attractions at lunaparknyc.com.
You Save, Gotham Girls Benefit
An All-You-Can-Ride pass is normally thirty dollars, and you can buy it at the bout for just twenty-five. Better still, a portion of those dollars go to benefit the not-for-profit Gotham Girls!
Luna Park is at the corner of Surf Avenue and West 10th street, just a short walk from the bouts. Go nuts on the rides for ALL YOU CAN RIDE, and we'll keep the beer cold for you at the after party.
AFTER PARTY Coney Island Bar and Grill,
with live band and full late night kitchen.
From the bout's conclusion until we shut it down!
1205 Surf Avenue, near 12th Street PARKINGParking in Coney Island on a weekend can be tough; if driving, plan on extra time accordingly.

There is a parking lot at Abe Stark Arena / MCU Park as well, but it may be full due to a simultaneous event at MCU Park.
SEATING All tickets are General Admission. You may sit at track level, where there are no chairs, or higher in the stands. If you plan on cheering trackside, you may want to bring your own folding chair.
FOOD / BEVERAGES
Beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) will be sold at the venue.
Food options in the venue will be limited.
Admission includes in-and-out return privileges. Grab a bite from one of the many nearby vendors before, during and after the bouts!
