I managed to sneak in a few hours of amusement park time during my honeymoon in Australia. Good thing my wife likes parks too!
Nestled snugly across the harbour from the CBD, Luna Park is located in one of the most scenic places in the world.
This place nostalgic to a whole new level.
See what I mean??
The similarities to Coney Island are quite noticeable, for better or worse
On the plus side, plenty of old school amusement attractions
Vivid murals point the way to their only remaining coaster, a Wild Mouse
Placed on the rooftop of other attractions, space is understandably at a premium here.
There are other signs that real estate is encroaching. Long gone is the aging Arrow coaster that used to loop on the hillside above the park.
But what's left is a quirky little park in one of the most picturesque places you'll ever see.
