Be Afraid, Very Afraid
The Coney Island Mirror Maze has been abandoned for years. Run down, without power and completely empty. Or is it?
Enter the pitch black maze with a friend, but only if you are not afraid of things that go bump in the dark.
ALONE is an old Luna Park attraction brought back to life, or death I should say. You are guided by a mysterious keeper (with a great sense of humour) to take your first few steps into the labyrinth. Holding onto a friend, I thought it was going to be easy going, until things got darker. Suddenly a flash of light we both screamed, terrified of the faces we saw before us. Until we realised it was our own reflection!
The deeper you go into the maze the darker and scarier it gets they say no one can hear you scream in our case, I am sure the whole Luna Park heard! As things come out at you from the dark, make sure you remember the safe word "Sunshine". If you get overwhelmed just say the word and you will be guided out.
ALONE is a great attraction for those who enjoy getting scared. Think you are brave and can handle it? Think again. I challenge you to enter and not come out shaking and with your heart pounding.
Entry to ALONE is free with Unlimited Rides Pass, but you must be 10 years or older. It is not suitable if you have high blood pressure, heart condition, are pregnant or claustrophobic or have recently had surgery.
A great day of fun, Luna Park has something for everyone. With extra rides during the holidays, it's definitely worth visiting. No matter whether you are 4, 44 or 104, you will find plenty of great rides to enjoy. Make sure you eat light, especially if you plan to go on some of the more daring rides, such as the Disko or Ranger. At my age, I found the Merry Go Round, Coney Island slides and the Ferris Wheel most fun.
Other special offers include a Free Ferry Ticket if you buy your full price Unlimited Rides Pass at the new Luna Park Ticket Box at Wharf 4, Circular Quay. For a limited time Luna Park will also give you one free admission to plunge into North Sydney Olympic Pool with every purchase of an Unlimited Rides Pass.
