You would be hard pushed to imagine a more perfect location for Sydney's city amusement park than Luna Park's site nestled beside Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The park originally opened in 1935 and was an immediate success, with visitors crowding through its famous giant 30 foot wide entrance face.
Sadly the 1970s saw the start of a troubled period of history for Luna Park, with various extended periods of closure and ride removals. Thankfully the park reopened in 2004 and was granted Government protection when it was listed on the New South Wales State Heritage Register in 2010. Since then the park has regained its past glory and is receiving much love and investment from its new owners, the Luna Park Reserve Trust.
Most of Luna Park's attractions are accessed from the Midway which runs from the entrance face and along the water side. Amongst these are Coney Island Funnyland, the only remaining 1930s fun house in the world, and Wild Mouse, one of the last wooden wild mouse rollercoasters. The Wild Mouse is worth a trip to Luna Park all by itself.
With its iconic face, historic attractions and more modern rides, Luna Park is a popular and must-see city amusement park for visitors to Sydney.
