Coming next week to the Staten Island Boardwalk is a brand new seaside attraction.

It's the Fantasy Shore amusement park at Midland beach.

Kids will be able to take a ride on the Verrazano Viper and Tea Side Sea Cups, among other rides.

Operators say they plan to expand beyond kids' rides in the future.

"We are intending to actually this summer to have concessions both food and merchandising so people can buy some fun things some sunscreen for the beach maybe a towel maybe a fantasy shore amusement park towel but we also hope to expand rides ultimately that are some higher thrill rides that will attract the teens and tweens as well," said Ami Abramson, the director and CEO of NY Carousel Entertainment.

If all goes according to plan, starting next Saturday, the park will be open weekends until June 25.

After that, operators plan to open the park daily for the rest of the summer.
