I notice they are now offering an annual pass for $99 (unlimited rides) - a pretty good deal to anyone who may visit twice in a year or more.

Anyone going to be going these holidays? I think im heading in on tuesday.

Yeh I'll be going in hopefully. They used to always have the temporary rides up at least 1 week before the holidays started, they've slacked off a bit

All rides were working today, could see powersurge over the top of Luna Park, was also good to see the lights on and all rides moving after dark, all very unusual, to see on a Monday night. :D

Had a fun day today. Ill post some pics later when I get on my computer.

3rd time in a row someones been sick though that I've been. I guss I push my friends too much. Haha.

Power surge broke down while we were on it the second time. It was slowing down and the main arm was back into position then it just came to a slow stop. My friends were freaking out and thought they were going to die.. Blah. We were back on the ground though within about 8 minutes.

Oh and another thing that I found pretty funny.. We were talking about Wonderland and one of my friends said it closed because the rides were made of wood and were unsafe :\ I laughed and just agreed.

Tango train was taken apart which I got a pic of too. Im hoping they're getting rid of it and putting something else there! Doubt it though.

[EDIT]

Heres the pics

Thanks for the photos. Looks like you had a good day in there. Hmm interesting about the Tango Train, its probably one of the most popular rides in the park. Was it busy in there?

Nice work Paulie, especially the Tango-Train sneak-shot and the Ranger

Looks like Tango Train is getting a full overhaul.

Crowds weren't too bad. Only rides that really weren't walkons would have been the Wild Mouse and Dodgems as usual. Hurricane had a bit of a line through the day too.. Power surge was a walkon which is always good. :D

Got down to the park today. Had a pretty good day. Lining up for armbands was awful. Maybe Luna Park need to train their workers in a bit of crowd control. The line was probably not even 10 metres long and probably took me 15 minutes to get an armband. After that just about every ride was a walk-on. All of Joyland's gear that was in there was looking superb especially the Power Surge with it having a touch-up on its paintwork on part of the arms. The ends will be getting painted sometime soon.

Most of the Luna Park rides were looking good and running. Tango Train is actually getting totally re-built and should be running next year hopefully. Didn't bother riding the Spider, was running so slow I think the Ferris Wheel was more thrilling. Didn't ride the Dodgems or the Wild Mouse with them having decent length lines. And forgot to ride the Rotor. Anyway heres a few photos:

Maloney's Corner: I thought this was a good shot:

Image

Crazy Cars: Nice little kids ride owned by Joyland's. This is a one off in Australia with Joylands importing the Cars from SBF Visa and then Joylands along with Bernie Gimbert built this ride which has proven to be a pretty popular ride.

Image

Spider: Running very slowly now, the hubs look like the hardly spin when the platform rotates.

Image

Image

Ranger: Good fun ride, can't beat this Huss machine. Running pretty well and fast.

Image

Image

Image

Hurricane: Running well and looking good, bursts of air weren't loud due to the poor sooky whinging residents in the apartments.

Image

Image

Image

Power Surge: Running well and looking spectacular. Thanks again Miles, good seeing you again mate.

I think this shot looks great, very colourful:

Had a good day as I said. And enjoy!

If the images don't come up but instead the little box with the red X in the middle, just right click then click "Show Picture" and they should work.
