Melbourne's biggest costume party this Halloween


As Luna Park transforms into the ghoulishly delightful Luna Dark, you'll be a sad spook to miss out on Melbourne's biggest costume party this Halloween!

So what's in store for the brave guests willing to plunge into the world of Luna Dark and experience the scariest two-days and four-nights in town (26-28th and 31st October)?


  • The House of Horrors – For the fearless punters ONLY, enter into the darkness to witness the zombie doctor inflict blood-curdling terror on his deathly patients.

  • Menacing monsters everywhere – Make sure to look around every corner and behind shoulders because you never know when a staggering zombie, ghostly ghoul or creepy cadaver will reach and grab you! Fresh from the local tombstones in the area, this terrifying troupe will not stop until they sniff you out. And while you are checking behind you don't forget to look up at nine-metre long 'Giant Web' housing a set of slinky spiders spectacularly suspended above the Park.

  • Freaky face painting –Turn the kiddies into a real-life goblin or ghost during the day at the 'Freaky Faces' face painting parlour, or for the big kids among you, the talented face painters will also be making adult guests over with bloodcurdling themes.

  • Wizz Fizz is back – The kids are sure to get screaming with delight once they get stuck into playing the Wizz Fizz 'Monster Bash' game in the Luna Games Hut. With plenty of sherbet treats to be won, the young spooksters are bound to be fizzing with energy all ready to meet the Wizz Fizz Monsters who will be wandering around the Park on Saturday and Sunday afternoons (1 to 4pm). And for those who get thirsty for a spidery drink, there will be a special zone set-up to make the best tasting 'Spooky Spiders' on the planet.

  • Fangtastic photo studio presented by Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween – Gather all of your mates and step inside the 'Haunted Halloween' photo booth. Grab a prop or two; pose in front of Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween-themed backdrops and get your freakiest poses on. All guests get a pic souvenir and are entered into the best-dressed competition for a chance to win cash prizes as well as 20 consolation prize packs containing movie merchandise.

  • Eerie tunes by The Strays – Yes they are back to belt out the very best in thrilling hits to get your feet stomping and shivers rolling up and down your spine all at the same time! This time the band will be rocking alongside a licensed bar in The Famous Spiegeltent located within the Park's grounds.

    Make sure to visit Melbourne's Luna Park to witness the wicked transformation into Luna Dark and get prepared to join in all this hocus pocus hullabaloo and so much more this Halloween.
