Timed pricing is just a joke. You book a week or two before you come it isn't such a bad deal, book the day before and it is substantially more expensive. Get tickets on the day only to get reemed when you get there. Can only use government vouchers on the day as well (cannot use them online). It's like it's all planned that way. Food is good sizes and nice tasting but again over priced. There could be more shade and more options for rides for smaller kids. The roller coaster at the end not working today. Overall it was supposed to be a good experience but their timed costings will cost them more than they would get by charging less. There is a reason you only go to this place every couple of years. Considering that my kids had a good day, at my expense.

When there last night with family of 5 (3 younger kids) during Vivid promotion period(630pm-930pm). Adult ticket was $35 and Kid ticket was $25. Bought on site at 6pm.
Queue was reasonable. Most of the popular ride(bumper car, sledgehammer, tango train) were queued as the next second batch. Most of the kids ride were without queue(very good for kids). Ferris Wheel had the longest wait time(20-30min) due to its slow nature, which i think not worth the wait.

Within these 3 hours, we got 6-8 different rides + playthrough Coney Island. Overall fun and memorable experience with the kids. Reasonable priced as well.

Love the decor & the old time stuff. The chair-o-plane & the dropper were good. The covid check in was badly organised & arduous. Even though it was off season & it was not over crowded the queue times were way too long & no one was policing teen queue hoppers, waiting around is very frustrating. Seemed to be no rhyme or reason as to why so many spaces on some rides were left vacant, I know there’s social distancing to be adhered to but it was inconsistent - which added to queue times. A lot of things were closed for renovations which would make you wonder why they wasted lock down time. The kids enjoyed it but our local annual travelling carnival is better, no real reason to go out of your way to go to Sydney for a few carnival rides. Luna park has so much potential but there’s a very half arsed feeling to how it’s run.

Long queues, staff were nice enough but poor at transitioning groups as one ride finished and the next group started. It took two hours to get in after pre-buying tickets, their system is archaic. People jumped the queue to get into the park and this was viewed by staff but nothing was policied. We were there for seven hours and only managed five rides and we didn’t stop for lunch, didn’t even stop for the bathroom. There was zero sense of urgency from the team despite the queues building. It was a very frustrating and disappointing day. The tickets were also very expensive for rides that are mostly basic.

I attended Luna Park on a Monday with adult children and grandchildren. It is very expensive and overrated. the price for a pass was $75 each!!!. There are limited rides for small children and pensioners but the price is the same. We opted to just go into Coney Island which cost $20 and for that their are 4 rides to go on. You can go on the rides over and over nut you have to wait for one operator who may be at another ride. The OH & S rules are over the top and you cannot ride without someone watching and checking. Some things were out of order and appeared to have been for a while. The food prices are just as bad with a childs hot dog costing $12 and a chicken roll $17. You can walk in for free if you just want to look around but give it a big miss and ride a ferry or go to somewhere else in the city.

OMG!!!
$75 pp(Adult)
My wife and I waited 1 hr 50 minutes for a small roller coaster ride that lasted 2 minutes. People were jumping the queue with no one supervising.The Ferris Wheel "lost power " with People stuck on the ride for 45 minutes!!!
Honestly, my wife and I enjoyed the Ferry ride(FREE) from Circular Quay to Milson's Point more than the not so amusing park.

We got the ferry over from Circular Quay over to Luna Park.

We arrived, and the line up to purchase wrist bands was ridiculous.
Not only that, but some rides were not operating either.

Whilst I understand that Theme Parks can not operate without staff, safety etc driving ride prices up, I would say over $70 an adult to ride the amusement rides is a bit steep.

Especially when the Gold Coast has similar pricing for more advanced rides and safety.

We enjoyed walking around and viewing the park, but glad we chose not to get wrist bands.

Visited the park on Tuesday with my 11 yr old daughter who was looking forward to this outing for weeks and was super excited.

We got there by ferry 30 min before opening time and a queue was building steadily. By 11.30 am it was very busy with long queues for the rides. My daughter went on many rides (some twice) and didn’t mind waiting in a long queue. Coney Island was also enjoyable. Warm sunny weather too.

After reading so many negative reviews about pricing etc, I noticed everybody there on the day was really enjoying themselves and having a great time.

We didn’t eat there so can’t comment on the food and drink prices and quality.

Overall, it was a great day out and my daughter would certainly like to return next time we’re in Sydney.

Not quite sure why people are giving Luna Park Sydney such harsh reviews? A lot of reviews seem to be related to people’s ticketing issues, due to them either them being unorganised or leaving things to the last minute, sorry, that is not Luna Parks fault! Anyway, we had a great day at the park, the big face at the entrance is beautifully maintained & in immaculate condition. Lots and lots of staff working the rides and stands so plenty of help & assistance available. Fantastic history in the Coney Island section of the park with old fashioned slippery slides inside a building just so full of history & great black & white framed photos of the park from decades ago hanging on the walls. This is a fun park, it is not trying to be Seaworld or Dreamworld or Disney. It is in a magnificent location on the harbour and a true sea side fun park with a great atmosphere with singers and dancers, rides, food & just good old fashioned family & carnival fun. Enjoy it for what it is!

We queued to buy a ticket and were told we had to buy it online first.
Unlimited rides was the only option for $75, my son is over 13. My husband only wanted to ride the Ferris wheel but you can't buy a ticket for one ride.
Apparently if you buy in advance it's cheaper but it's hard to plan in advance when the weather is variable.
I thought $75 was a bit expensive for the rides on offer, the theme parks on the Gold Coast have many more rides for a similar price.
