Sydney Luna Park is one of Australia’s best-known amusement park and Sydney’s major landmark listed on State Heritage Register of New South Wales. It is sure to stir up nostalgic memories and make much more. Nestled on the Sydney Harbour, Luna Park is a great theme park for all ages and is a must-see venue for kids.
Started in New York in 1903 at Coney Island, Luna Park has developed into over 85 amusement parks (not all of them are operational now). Australia had 5 in its principal cities and only Melbourne (the oldest), Sydney are functional to-date.
Since 1935, Luna Park is operational in Sydney, every Sydneysider, without a doubt would have at least been once to Luna Park as a child or a teenager in their lifetime.
Nothing says Luna Park more than the face of Old King Cole. Sydney Luna park is based on the colossal grinning façade of the Steeplechase Park in America and Melbourne. Luna Park’s 9-metre-long smiling face, together with the towers, have stood over the symbolic entrance for throughout the long history of the amusement park.
The atmosphere is electrifying, and the views of the harbour are just out of this world. Cannot help but love the way Luna Park has stood the test of time. There are usually entertainers around to keep patrons smiling. You also get a good few options for those feeling extra hungry after all those rides.
From the time you arrive, you just don’t stop smiling like Old King Cole! And at times you won’t even be missing the long queues. With all that fun you will also see other free entertainments like Luna Park characters roaming the grounds dancing and singing.
Luna Park has over 22 rides, with a good mix of rides including the classic Wild Mouse roller coaster. Don’t let its small size fool you, for its size; it is packed with an incredible punch. There’s enough for most thrill-seekers to have a blast and there’s also the genuinely family rides.
The harbour-side location of Luna Park is in itself just fantastic and creates a superb backdrop for many of the rides. This backdrop turns what would be an otherwise ordinary Ferris wheel ride into a truly memorable experience.
Luna Park isn’t a gigantic theme park that takes days to explore, and it isn’t packed with the latest high-tech rides. For what it is, however, it is one of the most unique places in Sydney. After all Luna Park offers some good old fashioned fun.
