Hours of fun to be had behind St Kilda's iconic Mr Moon face
Attention families near and far, you are invited to explore Luna Park these school holidays. Enjoy extra hours of summer fun at Melbourne's iconic amusement park because "Mr Moon" welcomes you daily during the summer school holiday break.
Luna Park, located on the foreshore of St Kilda, recently turned 107. Despite its fair age, Luna Park has introduced a brand new ride this summer, enticing thrillseekers into fly into the skies of Port Phillip Bay.
The Park's new 'Supernova' ride is a giant swing, twirling you high and fast by spinning 360° and 32 metres into the sky. From the top, you are welcomed with incredible views of Port Phillip Bay, and at night your sights are illuminated, with the ride lit up with 3,000 bright lights.
The younger visitors in your family aren't left out, because Luna Park's second recent addition, the 'Happy Swing,' is a gentle, enjoyable ride swinging little ones, parents and carers back and forth in the summer breeze.
The aforementioned rides add to Luna Park's big list of attractions to enjoy this summer. Little kid favourites the Arabian Merry (the elephant ride), the Carousel and the Mirror Maze.
The tweens in your family will love the Pharaoh's Curse (like a giant pair of scissors), the Coney Drop and the Speedy Battle rollercoaster.

The oldie but goodie rides are always a winner too, such as the Ghost Train, carnival games and the Great Scenic Railway.
Why not stay for the day and refuel at Cafe Luna, alternatively grab something on the go such as a hot dog finished off with fairy floss. Cool down on a hot summer's day with a snow cone, available in six refreshing flavours.
If you're seeking good times this summer, Luna Park is where it's at. Gather your crew and head to Mr Moon in St Kilda, for an unforgettable summer school holiday adventure.
