I took my two grandchildren today and was refused rides on the grounds that kids either can not be on their own or my assistance is not enough. As I was told - PER NEW POLICY ONE ADULT is for ONE CHILD REGARDLESS!. Being there in October and having all the rides with them or them on their own, such... More

Small amusement park catering mostly to kids, yet they charged A$39 for unlimited rides for kids 4-13 years old. My kids were only interested in 2-3 rides, which is a good thing that we paid for single ride tickets, but at A$8 per ride, still a horrible deal. The only good thing about this being over-priced is the lack of... More

Although it was a reasonably priced entry, the dirty dodgy carnival undertones ruin the experience. It's certainly no Dreamworld. Could do with a face lift, rickety run down rides, disinterested staff. Rip off side show alley.

I used to love Luna Park when I was a kid, but now that I'm older, I see why my parents hated it. The ticket for entry is not a horrible price, but if you're paying for yourself and 2 or 3 kids, bring your savings, cause you're going to need it. Same deal with the food, I would suggest... More

I recently went to Luna Park with my wife and kids. It was very busy and intresting place. We had lots of rides and enjoyed every movement. Great value of money that i spent to buy tickets. I recomend to every one to go there and have new experience....

Having gone relatively recently to theme parks in Orlando, this one isn't anywhere near the same league. It is perfectly located and there are some good rides (especially for small children) but the premises are relatively small and the main ride that goes along the perimeter of the park is a bumpy antique. I wouldn't make this attraction the focus... More

I've been going to luna park since I was a child, and over the last few years they have included a few new rides, whilst still maintaining the old ones. The scenic railway which still has the original cars from over a hundred years ago, gives you a great view of the st kilda beach when you reach the top.... More

Luna Park is a really great place for everyone! There are little kid rides and bigger kid rides and all are great fun for all. My all time favourite ride is the Scenic Railway. It is 100 years old and still running smooth. Everyone will love it here and I recommend if you need a good place to visit this... More

The classic Luna Park is in St Kilda (which is a part of Melbourne you should visit anyway). The famous crazy smiling mouth entrance is a nice spot to take a photo and you can then enter and look through the park for free. You only need to pay if you want to get on a ride or play a... More

This ain't no Disneyland kids!! It was ok, just ok, but don't eat the hot dogs after 8pm. Try finding a better theme park in Victoria though.
