Luna Park Melbourne

NEDERLANDS // ENGLISH

What is Luna Park?

Luna Park is located in St Kilda, a seaside area close to Melbourne. The park is smaller than Luna Park Sydney, but it evokes a similar, old-fashioned atmosphere. The most striking element of Luna Park Melbourne is its entrance, which is designed as a creepy, human-eating face. This also reminds me of Luna Park Sydney, but this version is even scarier. It’s quite photogenic, though.

Do they have roller coasters?

The park is home to Scenic Railway, one of the oldest operating roller coasters on Earth. The ride opened in 1912, so it’s already running for more than a century! As you might expect, Scenic Railway isn’t the most thrilling or smoothest coaster. However, this unique ride is a must-do for every coaster enthusiast. Those antique trains look amazing, the lay-out (which makes a circle tour around the park) is good and this is one of the few remaining roller coasters with a brake man. Needless to say… I enjoyed every second of this ride.

What’s unique?

Luna Park Melbourne has more to offer than just an old roller coaster. The park is actually home to many vintage rides. It features classic flat rides, a stunning carousel, an old-fashioned Haunted House and many rides for children. If you’re interested in riding classic rides, a visit to Luna Park shouldn’t be missed if you ever visit Melbourne.
