Luna Park. Round bruises

Luna Park

Having spent most of my life in the top end of Australia looking at pictures of the toothy moon grin of Luna Park, I was pretty darn excited when I finally got to go.

Perhaps I didn’t particularly enjoy standing in line for 45 minutes at each ride. Maybe it was the fact that the staff acted as though they not only had the hardest job in the world, but the most important. Either way, I felt severely underwhelmed by my Luna adventure.

The theme park is celebrating its centenary and I couldn’t help but think, after 100 years surely they could have upgraded the suspension on their main roller coaster, The Scenic Railway? I found it hard to enjoy being slammed into the side of the cart on my left shoulder, and having the steering stick dug into my right. But hey, maybe that’s just me.

Highlight of the day? Getting on the carousel with my mum. There is nothing like when you’re feeling down, bruised and beaten up than to ride on an ornate horse to slow magical music. I’m not kidding.

There is definitely fun to be had at Luna Park, but be aware, you will have to wait for it.
