100 years old with new thrill ride & extended opening hours
Luna Park
The days really ARE longer at Luna Park

If you think you've seen everything Luna Park has to offer, think again. Body Rock, a new thrill ride is now operating, and with extended opening hours over the Spring school holiday break there really are more hours in the day to enjoy Melbourne's most iconic family fun attraction.

Open every day of the school holidays from 11am in 2013, Luna Park offers free admission and a range of ticketing options, staying open until 11pm on selected evenings.

Body Rock, the newest attraction, is described as a 'rocking adventure' sending riders 'side to side and all around', in an encounter that 'will leave you screaming for more'.
