As Melbourne thaws out and we spring into the school holidays from 21 September, get your kids into action with Spring surprises at Luna Park including a NEW member of our rides family – the 'HAPPY SWING', the return of the Great Scenic Railway plus a cinema collaboration with The Angry Birds Movie 2.
Luna Park's General Manager, Matt Butta says he is thrilled to be introducing, the 'Happy Swing' to Luna Park's set of rides and reintroducing the Great Scenic Railway following its annual winter hibernation, these Spring School Holidays.
"The Happy Swing is made especially for our younger guests who can sit and enjoy the swaying whoosh of wind in their hair as they swing back and forth. "This ride adds to our collection of rides where an accompanying adult does not require a ride ticket to join in the fun.
"The feeling this swing creates is one of happiness and freedom! I'm sure the grown-ups will love jumping on with their littlies to feel the joy!
"Along with the 'Happy Swing', the Great Scenic Railway is back from its annual heritage preservation works to take passengers along the dips and curves of its breathtaking one-kilometre track.
"The works that have been undertaken to date on the Scenic Railway are an extraordinary work in progress. This winter our team of dedicated specialist tradespeople have continued with the ongoing program of structure and track replacement, in particular rebuilding of dip number six of the track," Mr Butta said. In the lead-up to the holidays and to celebrate the release of The Angry Birds Movie 2 on 12 September, we will be giving 100 lucky families a free pass to be first to see the movie with the purchase of our Family Pass online! And for the kids who love games, there is an awesome new carnival game featuring loads of The Angry Bird Movie 2 merchandise prizes to be won.
Guests will also notice a Spring rejig of some of their favourite rides including the high-speed Power Surge happily nestled in its new home within the Park's grounds. To enjoy these rides plus our NEW SPRING-TASTIC RIDE, 'HAPPY SWING', go for our Unlimited Ride Ticket. With this pass there's no limit on the springy, whirly, twisty fun to be had all in one day! Make sure to visit Luna Park these Spring School Holidays to re-energise and spring into the warmer months ahead!
