Wheel Fun Rentals to Open New Bike and Boat Rental Locations in Queens

Queens, NY – Wheel Fun Rentals is opening two new locations in Queens, New York.  Flushing Meadows Corona Park and the World’s Fair Marina Pier 1 will soon be home to a wide variety of watercraft and specialty cycles. Wheel Fun Rentals offers guests the opportunity to rediscover the joys of having some old-fashioned outdoor fun, providing unique rental equipment for people of all ages and skill levels. The grand opening for these locations will take place on Friday, July 4th.

“Over the course of our nearly 30 years of experience, we have learned that in today’s fast-paced world, people still want the simple pleasures of a day at the park and having fun together,” said Al Stonehouse, President and CEO of Wheel Fun Rentals. “We offer a way for customers to get outside, turn off the electronics, leave the car behind, and spend time together having fun and experiencing their surroundings.”

The larger of the two locations, Wheel Fun Rentals at Flushing Meadows Corona Park’s Meadow Lake, will offer a wide variety of specialty cycles that are fun for everyone. Low-to-the-ground, motorcycle-inspired Choppers and go-cart style Quad Sports turn Flushing Meadows into your own personal playground. Carriage-inspired Single and Double Surreys seat three and six people, respectively, plus two small children in the front basket, making it safe and easy to fit everyone on board. Classic bicycles will also be available, including cruiser bikes, tandem bikes, and kids bikes. Located on the northern edge of Meadow Lake at Ederle Terrace, Wheel Fun Rentals at Flushing Meadows Corona Park will be right in the middle of it all. Pedal around the iconic 12-story Unisphere and past staples of American sports history on a specialty cycle.

For those looking for water-bound adventures, two- and four-seat pedal boats will be available at Flushing Meadows Corona Park Meadow Lake, along with single and double kayaks and stand up paddle boards.  Wheel Fun Rentals will also provide a selection of watercraft at World’s Fair Marina Pier 1, including single and double kayaks and stand up paddle boards where users can explore Flushing Creek, Flushing Bay, and beyond.

Bring the whole family to explore Flushing Meadows Corona Park on a Deuce Coupe or Surrey, then cool off by hitting Meadow Lake or the World’s Fair Marina on a boat or stand up paddleboard. Thorough instructions and safety equipment are provided with every rental, ensuring a safe and fun experience for everyone. Have some good old-fashioned fun and get some exercise while exploring this iconic area of Queens. Don’t miss this opportunity to see Queens like you’ve never seen it before! Doors open July 4th.
