I always loved the river caves, it was gentle and cool inside, you would have a brief respite from the noise and heat. Yes bring it back. Am I the only one one here that has actually has been on this? :wink:

I'll be there in the holidays so i'll be able to check it out. Was the River Caves like a flat dark flume type ride?

It just meandered around from scene to scene, jungle theme to snow theme etc, old wooden boats, that just flowed with the current, but no drops.

Hey Princess,

Well Iguess I also fit into the "Senior Citizen" category a bit, and have vivid memories of the River Caves at Luna Park in Melbourne,,,

I fondly remember having the Sunday Roast with my grandparents in Elwood (a suburb right next door to StKilda), then my Pop taking me to Luna Park and riding the Whip, River Caves and having fun in the Giggle Palace (Melbourne's equivalent to Sydney's Coney Isand).

So - the mention of the River Caves made me "Google" a bit - as a result, I found some REALLY cool pics which I hope everyone enjoys - some great shots of the the changing Luna Park face over the years, the Big Dipper (where it used to fit in the park), and my fave - a shot of the Rive Caves entrance in the 1920s -dont you just love the attendant uniforms??? (I still remember these unifroms from the 70s,,,,)

Anyway - Lindsay Fox who bought LPM a few years ago, said he would try and re-establish a few of the old rides, including The River Caves - I guess we'll wait and see what happens,,,,

Anyway the link: http://forum.melbournephotos.net.au/vie ... 8978d8ec56

Enjoy,

Jaffa23

Thanks for that Jaffa, lol, (not quite a senior Citizen :lol:) I still think the Sydney face is the better of the two, I always think the Victorian one looks angry.

Maybe the LPM Face looks angry because I wasn't able to grace it with my presence yesterday because of the weather.

Thats a bummer - sorry to hear about the non-visit to LPM - typical Melbourne weather.

Hopefully you'll get a chance at a later stage,,,,
