Don’t know about you but when we think of St Kilda the first thing that comes to mind is Luna Park! It’s an iconic amusement park that adds colour and excitement to our beautiful city. Sadly, it’s taken us 7/8 years to take our kids there and after our experience there today we are kicking ourselves we didn’t do it sooner.
When we were on our way to the park, the excitement started when we saw the infamous Luna Park mouth. Parking was actually a breeze with a large car park opposite Luna Park with plenty of available spaces. As soon as we walked into the park, the kids eyes lit up, excited by all the wonderful things they wanted to experience.
Luna Park is a Mecca for thrill seeking children and adults alike with a ride to suit everyone’s fear-o-metre.
Built in 1912, the Great Scenic Railway is a must. it’s fun and just the right amount of scary!
The house of horrors walk through is not for the faint hearted with spooky clowns and zombies popping out from every direction, there was no way these mamas were accompanying the kids in there, that was a job for the dads! 🤣
Favourites among the kids were the Great Scenic Railway (how could this iconic ride not delight?!), the new Space Jam, the Pirate Ship and the Dodgem Cars. We spent nearly 7 hours there and all had a ball!
There’s a plethora of food choices, mostly carnival style. You can’t go to Luna Park without experiencing a Dagwood dog or an enormous fairy floss stick.
Melbourne's Luna Park have gone all out these school holidays with extra special activities for the kids. They have a great big easter egg hunt on the Easter weekend which our kids did and loved! They also have a brand new ride, 40m high Space Jam, which is only at Luna Park until the 15th April. I can't count the number of times our kids went on this ride, they loved it! On the 7th, 8th, 14th & 15th April there will be a special 'Art Space' where kids can let their creativity run free.
The cost of a ticket with unlimited rides is only $17.50 for kids 3 and under, $39.95 for kids aged 4-12, and $59.95 for 13 years +. This is good value for a full day of fun the kids won't forget! We also just learnt you can buy an annual pass for $110, amazing value if you go a few times each year.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive, fun filled activity sure to please kids (and adults) of any age, we highly recommend heading to Luna Park these school holidays. It’ll be the highlight of your kids holiday!
