“I need to get to Coney Island now. Not to stab him again. Although, I’m leaving my options open. He has the matchbook, and if he works there, they have to have some kind of record or photos.”

Mabel Mora (Selena Gomez)

The glitter guy works in Coney Island. It is thanks to Theo (James Caverly) and his discovery of the security badge of Mabel’s (Selena Gomez) attacker that the light was shed. Mabel wants to go there to find information about this suspect.

Despite their liabilities, Theo begs Mabel to let him take her to Coney Island. While they manage to break in and steal the personnel files, the duo takes the opportunity to play several games in the complex. We see them passing in front of the Wonder Wheel or playing the “Whack-a-mole”.

The scene was shot in March 2022 and most of the journalists present focused mainly on the clothes worn by Selena Gomez like her parka or her plaid miniskirt. Many fashion magazines have also made extensive research to find all the outfits worn by the star during the show.


The controversial “Whack-a-mole” was released in 1976.

Luna Park in Coney Island

Coney Island’s Luna Park is one of the world’s most famous amusement parks, but probably the one with the most chaotic course.

An iconic Brooklyn amusement park, Coney Island’s Luna Park became a fashionable place as early as 1860. Hotels, amusement rides and horse racing tracks flourished at the pace of a boom that was greatly helped by the installation, at the beginning of the 20th century, of an electrified railroad line connecting Brooklyn to Manhattan. The first carousel was built in 1876, followed in 1916 by the opening of the iconic Nathan’s Famous hot dog restaurant. In 1920, it was The Wonder Wheel, the Ferris wheel that would come to symbolize the place worldwide, that New Yorkers welcomed with open arms. Several sensational rides entered the breach, taking advantage of the affluence. But the war dealt a fatal blow to the park, and the bankruptcies quickly followed. Finally, it was during the 1960’s that the attractions found favor with visitors from Manhattan and tourists.
