Luna Park's Countdown Carnivale
Race around on rollercoasters and soar sky-high on the ferris wheel — before the historic fun park closes for a six-month revamp.

Luna Park is undergoing a whopping $30 million makeover next year, which will see nine new permanent rides land at the Sydney attraction once complete. So, if you were looking to get a dose of kidult thrills this summer, you'll have to head to the fun-filled harbourfront venue before it closes in late January. As if answering your prayers, Luna Park will run a one-month Countdown Carnivale, so you can do just that.
Running from December 26 till January 26, the event will let you race around on rollercoasters, bump about on dodgem cars and soar sky-high on the ferris wheel before the park's temporary closure until July. Plus, it'll be your last chance to take a spin on rides like the Power Surge, Round Up and Body Rock. And, on top of all the hair-raising rides, there'll be a Carnivale-inspired parade.
Tickets cost $50, which gets you into the park and unlimited rides. The catch? You have to pre-book your spot online. Luna Park will be open daily, with sessions running from 10.30am–4pm. On Fridays and Saturdays, as well as on Monday, January 25, evening sessions will run from 5–10.30pm.
