Luna Park is an old theme park which has been around for a long time. It is located in St Kilda, close to the Melbourne CBD. Ever since I was a little girl, I have visited Luna Park to celebrate birthdays and just for fun on the school holidays. It is a fun and exciting place to go - you just pay for rides and food is great.
My experiences at Luna Park have always been excellent. The family and I went there to celebrate my birthday one year and we went on a ton of rides together and had a blast. My favourite ride at Luna Park is the scenic roller coaster, which is the oldest roller coaster in Australia. The theme park staff actually stand up on the ride and directs the coaster, which is really freaky to watch! It gives you a great view of St Kilda which is lovey and there are little dips and steep inclines throughout which makes it really fun.
Another great aspect of the theme park is the mirror maze which is a lot of fun. You have to try and make your way through the maze full of mirrors, which is tricky because all you can see is yourself!
The food at Luna Park is not too bad, however, we usually opt for walking down to McDonald's which is not far away to have a bite to eat as you are allowed to walk out of the theme park and then come back in.
Other rides at the theme park included Dodgem Cars, Spider, Ferris Wheel, Coney Island Top Drop, The Silly Serpent, Pharoah's Curse, Pirate Ship, Carousel and a few more.
Kids and adults can enjoy this fantastic theme park together, however, there are height restrictions, so measure young kids before you go, just to make sure they will be able to ride most rides. Luna Park is open on weekends and every day during school holidays and summer time.
