About Luna Park

luna park melbourne st kilda by night
From the moment you step inside Mr Moon’s giant mouth, you are exposed to a world full of carnival flair,
from the rides that send you sky-high, to historical carousel rides,
Melbourne’s Luna Park has been the face of fun in St Kilda for generations. 

Overlooking the famous Port Phillip Bay, this historic park has been a destination for Melbourne families for the past century. With 2012 celebrating 100 years of fun-filled adventures, Luna Park continues to surge forward with a generous mix of heritage listed attractions and brand new thrill rides to satisfy all thrill seekers.

The most famous of the Park’s attractions is its Scenic Railway Roller Coaster, a large wooden coaster that projects its passengers, at high speed, around the outside of the entire Park. It boasts the title of being the oldest continually operating wooden roller coaster in the world and the only one of its kind with a standing brakeman in control aboard its moving carriages. This world famous roller coaster will not only provide you with heart-stopping dips and turns, but also the most stunning views of Port Phillip Bay St. Kilda has to offer.

Luna Park offers a range of attractions for all ages from mini roller coasters such as the Silly Serpent, to nail biting thrill rides such as the Pharaoh’s Curse and Enterprise. A day at Luna Park cannot be missed when visiting Melbourne, no matter your age.

Ride Closures

While we try to make sure we have as many rides open as possible, due to inclement weather and maintenance works, rides may be unavailable at Luna Park throughout the year. We are an outside Park with limited shade and undercover-areas, please be mindful of dressing appropriately for Melbourne’s unpredictable weather changes. You can never go wrong packing sunscreen, hats and umbrellas!
Luna Park Melbourne just for fun!

Major factors impacting rides:

  • High and strong winds:
    This affects our taller rides and can result in closures until the winds subside.
  • Rain:
    While it is raining, our roller coasters will close. If the weather improves and the rain stops, these rides can sometimes reopen.
  • Ride Maintenance:
    To keep our rides performing at their best, our rides are subject to period of routine maintenance.
  • Extreme or very dreary un-Lunie weather:
    If the weather is particularly miserable (we all know how Melbourne can be sometimes!) Luna Park may close earlier than advertised on our website. In these cases, a notice will be placed our our Facebook page.
Luna Park Melbourne does not refund or exchange tickets in the case of ride closures or early Park closure. If the weather is a little gloomy, keep an eye on our Facebook Page for updates on any ride closures or opening time changes, call our admin staff on 03 9525 5033 or speak to our friendly ticket box purples when you arrive.
