Strap on your skates and glide into the holidays with glee
We are in the thick of winter. I, for one, am finding myself to be more lethargic as the dark days roll on and on and the barometer falls. Winterfest at Luna Park is offering an event that will energise even the most sluggish of winter hibernators. From July 5th - 22nd, coinciding with the school holidays, Winterfest will take centre stage at Luna Park.
An unlimited rides pass will enable you to enjoy the attractions of the park and Winterfest. The main attraction of Winterfest will be the ice skating rink, set up at the back end of Luna Park. I crave snow when the temperature dips, and I naively wish I could one day wake to find the city blanketed in snow. Luckily for snow lovers like me, there will be two magical snowfalls each skating session.
For the spontaneous and disorganised amongst us, you do not have to worry about booking in an ice skating session at Winterfest. New sessions will be held every 45 minutes and last for 30 minutes with up to 100 people allowed on the ice at any time. Simply rock up when you feel the want to skate. The Ice Rink will also be open to everyone above 85cm who holds a valid rides pass, though those under 130cm will need to be accompanied by an adult with a rides pass.
Winterfest will almost fool you into believing you've stepped into Christmas in the Northern Hemisphere as the big red man, Santa Claus himself, is coming to town. Santa will wander the park to spread holiday cheer, and he will stop for a photo if you please.
Winterfest will also provide an array of tasty wintry treats that will warm up your insides in between your skate sessions. I'm dreaming of hot pretzels and hot chocolates.
Luna Park will have extended trading over the school holidays, and even be open later some nights making it a unique date possibility or fun after work activity for the grown-ups who seek to embrace winter and the fun it can offer.
So strap on your skates and zoom to Luna Park for a limited and unique fun-filled event that is sure to thaw the frostiest winter loather and awaken the wonder of winter in all.
