Melbourne’s Luna Park is famous about town for its thrills, fun and excitement as well as for a rich and beautiful history stretching back more than a hundred years.
It all started on 13 December 1912, when Luna Park opened its doors to its very first visitors. More than 22,000 people passed through the mouth of Mr Moon on that summer’s day, many of them rushing to try the new Great Scenic Railway — now the oldest operating wooden roller coaster of its kind in the world.
Fast forward to this summer and the park will be home to Pirate’s Revenge, an action packed aquatic coaster that plunges riders down a 16-metre slope through plumes of gushing spray. So step up and get wet while you have the chance!
Try out your dodgem skills, take a nail-biting thrill ride on the Power Surge or check out the spectacular views of the city and Port Phillip Bay while suspended upside down on Pharoah’s Curse.
There are plenty of rides and attractions for the little ones too, with winged elephants, a mini coaster and the Red Baron flying roundabout to soak up some of their boundless energy! Grab an unlimited ride ticket to enjoy all the spinning, zooming, twirling and shrieking you could possibly want all day long.
