Get set to get wet on Luna Park's brand new aquatic coaster

If you're looking to keep cool these school holidays, then dive into Luna Park Melbourne for a splashingly fun time with their exciting new attraction for families to enjoy this summer only!

From Saturday 23rd December 2017 until Monday 29th January 2018 inclusive, Melbourne's most loved amusement park invites you to jump aboard Pirate's Revenge, their BRAND NEW aquatic coaster for all the family to enjoy.

Pirate's Revenge features a whopping 16-metre slippery slope through plumes of refreshingly-cold gushing spray.

Get set to get wet as you hop onboard the floating log, but be warned, this one is only for the brave-hearted! The action-packed attraction includes life-sized pirates, an array of hungry crocodiles and a heart-stopping shark encounter! It's a thrill seeker's 'fanta-sea' and after one adventure on Pirate's Revenge, you'll be hooked!

If that doesn't whet your appetite, or you prefer your thrills on dry land, try the newly reconstructed 'first dip' of The Great Scenic Railway, as the train hurtles around the 967m track at speeds of 50-60km/h. The heritage-listed attraction is the world's oldest operating wooden roller coaster of its kind and turned an impressive 105 years old on 13th December 2017.

Adding more sizzle to the summer school holidays, the Bouncing Beach Patrol will rove around the park in January, making sure the flags of fun are flying! Armed with daring drills, they'll come to your rescue if needed!

From Boxing Day, to celebrate the release of 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle', Luna Park is giving visitors the chance to win some cool movie merchandise at the 'Toss' carnival game you have to get in fast as it's only while stock lasts!

An unlimited ride ticket will ensure you have endless fun all day long, spinning and zooming from ride to ride. Once you've had all the fun you can stomach for one day, top off your visit at one of the park's 'cool zones' and grab a summery treat in the form of a frozen slushie, snow cone or scoop of ice-cream!

Luna Park's 105th summer season runs from 23rd December 2017 and Luna Park will be open every day of the holidays from 11am (excluding Christmas Day).

Families can take advantage of Luna Park's Family Pass for just $149.95, making it even more affordable for families to enjoy everything that the park has to offer, including unlimited rides all day long!

Get yourself down to Luna Park these school holidays to enjoy the seaside breezes, picturesque views overlooking the famous Port Phillip Bay and ultimate summer fun at Luna Park.

Don't forget to upload your fun snaps and videos to Luna Live, Luna Park's new social media channel, using the #lunalive.
