    It’s fun but pricey
    As someone who thrives with less noise and less company, I had a great day. It was afternoon, kids were able to stay on the rides and have multiple turns without getting off, all the lines were short, but geez a star lost because prices of food was ridiculous, understaffed, and a few of those that were staffed, seemed like they didn’t want to be there/hated kids/hated their jobs. Some workers were lovely though. Why change the prices on different days though? Seems a bit unfair and comes across as price gouging. Gone are the days where an unlimited day for a kid was under $30 I wouldn’t NOT recommend. But 100% go on the boomerang. You have to! 🪃

    Enjoyment in the LUNA North Sydney amusement park.
    This place will put a smile on your face for sure. Enjoy the amazing time with family and friends here at the amusement park. It's free to get into the park, at least it was on the Sunday we went it. Wonder around and hear all the great laughter from everyone on the rides.

    Great roller coasters
    We expected a small park with a few rides but wow those rides packed a punch! The Big Dipper, the boomerang and the tango train were our favourite rides. The attendants were all friendly and helpful. Fun for all ages!

    Theme park
    Visited with my wife and daughter. A small theme park beside Sydney Harbour bridge, with a couple of good coasters. A good park for young children although we were disappointed that we had to buy an all day ticket to go on anything rather than just a ticket for the coaster that we wanted to try. Food was also geared up for parties, as we could not enter the cafeteria due to private party bookings. Not somewhere i will rush back to.

    Harbourside Fun Park - Free to Walk Through
    It always surprises me that Luna Park exists where it does, right on the waterfront of Sydney Harbour, at the foot of the Harbour Bridge. The giant face which forms the entrance has been grinning its maniacal, kinda fun but kinda creepy, smile at Sydney-siders for decades. Built in 1935, the fun park has retained a retro feel which makes it nice to stroll through. However it’s best seen in the evening. What appears a bit shabby during the day, is transformed as the lights come on and turned into something a little magical. We recently caught the ferry from Circular Quay to Milsons Point at sunset and because we had a bit of time on our hands, we walked through the park. The ferry ride is only short and takes you right under the Harbour Bridge. It’s a lovely time of the day to be on the harbour and many photographers were lining the waterfront with their tripods and cameras set up to catch the stunning views. Entry is free, which I hadn’t realised before. Anyone can stroll through - you only pay if you’re doing rides or games. We didn’t have the time or inclination for either but if we did, the ferris wheel would have been my pick of the rides, for the view alone. It’s worth noting that it is cheaper to book online and in advance compared to buying tickets once you’re there.

We were staying in Sydney and had to visit the park! Our kids were happy with only going for a couple of hours though so we actually arrived on a Sunday night at about 7:30pm. The park closed at 9pm so we only got a little bit of experience but because we chose a quieter time I think it was much more fun!

Both our girls were able to ride most rides alone (both in yellow zone) so we just purchased two rides for both of them. They went on the Ferris wheel together and then chose one each separately. We also got them 2 carnival games each. Total was $59. They LOVED it. They did there rides and games and then there was a street show on. The performers were really engaging and both girls got up dancing with them. We then got some dinner, some fairy floss and it was time to go! The girls both said they had a wonderful experience and being from QLD with the theme parks up here it was all they needed!

I completely recommend cutting it short, experiencing a few things at a much quieter time than trying to make a day out of it.

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.

‘Ello chaps!

Luna Park is a small amusement park located on the northern shore of Sydney Harbor. It’s easily accessibly by boat or train, located the opposite side of the harbor as the was Sydney Opera House and “the rocks”.

Luna Park has been open since October 1935 and has several dozen amusement rides including small roller coasters. The park is FREE to enter and walk around, although you have to pay based upon the number of rides. Price also depends on height restrictions since the taller you are the more rides you can actually go on. This makes pricing much more affordable for families.

This is a fantastic park to take a stroll through and enjoy a few hours of fun family time.

There are a few gift shops and small little full service and quick service dining options.

That with its location make sit a wonderful spot to check out for visitors and locals alike.

It’s not Disney World, but that’s also part of its charm.

Overall I give Luna Park in Sydney five stars out of five.

We came with 3 kids yet the 2 youngest can’t go on many rides. The dusk ticket has better value for money unless you can use Entertainment Book 25% discount. Better come by ferry or train as parking is pretty expensive!

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.

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.

Luna Park are extremely unreasonable and money hungry. We bought 6 tickets at $300 for 29th December. Due to public health advice we decided it was best not to travel to Sydney from the central west and potentially risk bringing Covid back or having to isolate for 14 days once we return. Luna Park refuse point blank to let us reschedule our tickets as they are ‘Covid safe’. Milsons Point was even listed as a hot spot yet they still refused! Every other experience we had booked in for this holiday happily let us reschedule however Luna Park would not budge. We didn’t ask for a refund, we just asked to attend on a different date. Disgusting behaviour. My family will never ever return to the this park.

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.

Visiting Sydney for a bit and due to unforseen cirumstances I wanted to reschedule my ticket.

However, it wasn’t and it wasnt even refunded. I paid about 170$ for the ticket plus games and they just took every penny.

Customer service is pretty bad as well as they do not reply within working hours, they replied to me about 12AM-1AM after emailing them in the afternoon.

Too bad there’s no 0 stars, I would’ve given it to them.

Tickets should be atleast refundable and/or can be rescheduled.
