The Great

Scenic Railway


Ride the world’s oldest continually operating roller coaster!

Annual Maintenance


Winter is here, and the Scenic Railway will not be running so that specific heritage preservation works can be performed by our specialist tradespeople. The much-loved heritage ride is scheduled to be up and running for the September School Holidays.

While it’s closed for maintenance guests who visit the Park and purchase an Unlimited Ride Ticket hoping to go on the Railway will receive a single ride voucher so they can return and ride the Railway when the it’s back in operation.

We thank you for your patience.


The iconic heart of Luna Park is just as exhilarating as it was when it opened back in 1912. The dips and turns of its almost 1km wooden track will put the wind in your hair and reveal stunning views of Port Phillip Bay.
