  1. Cruiseship, how regularly do they have these student visits? Surely there wouldn't be enough schools in Sydney for this to occur every single school-day of the year? I guess if you rang a week before you were planning your visit, they could tell you if they had any large groups booked for the day, or do they try and keep that under their hat? Either way, I work mon-fri so I will be visiting on a weeked, but other potential visitors might want to know how to avoid these weekday 'excursions'
  2. Thanks Jobe and Richard. I have been to a few concerts at LPS over the past 5 or 6 years(just didn't go on any rides), in the Big Top, and I must say the place is definitely quite magical at night. I think you have helped me make up my mind on which day of the week to visit. I actually have to say I never visited Sega World and because this was my view of it aswell, just a glorified arcade. It was also a stupid place for a park. If I was going to make a day of being in Sydney, I wasn't really prepared to spend it indoors, and there's just too many things to do around Darling Harbour. I think we might make a trip there on a Saturday arvo some time in the next month or so. I'll let you all know how it goes, and how the old girl is holding up.
  3. Thanks Alex, appreciate your input. Anyone been there in the last couple of months? If the queues are only a few ride cycles, like Alex says, even on weekends then a Saturday arvo/evening is seeming like a more 'atmospheric' time to visit. Gotta love all those lights and the big entrance lit-up of a night time. edit: I don't know if I would be too keen on the carnie rides they ship in during holidays. My mate used to be a carnie, and operated a few of the seasonal rides at LPS. If the Ops of those temporary rides are anything like him, I wouldn't want to be riding them. lol, damn carnies.
  4. Hi everyone. I haven't been to a theme park since I was 15 or so(almost 30 now) but I've been browsing these forums for a couple of weeks just reading old threads about Wonderland(I'm born & bred in west Sydney) and it's got me all nostalgic. I've started remembering how much I loved theme parks when I was younger. I've done the GC parks, and was even lucky enough to visit all the major parks in California when I was about 11. These places were just magical to me as a child. I only ever went to Luna Park in Syd a couple of times as a kid, and my girlfriend has actually never been! I've decided her and I need to make a visit to Luna Park for nostalgia's sake. I'm just wanting recommendations for a good day/time to visit, to avoid being overcrowded, and the most economical way to enjoy the day. Obviously a visit outside of school holidays is going to be the best time, but does it get really busy on the weekends still? Is it worth getting an unlimited rides pass? I don't really see us going on the rides more than once each, but there is no indication of individual ride prices on their website. Also, is it worth going there on a weekend night? Or does it get busy? Obviously the place always seems a little more magical at night, and the views are amazing. Sorry for the long post, but I hope some Sydney siders can give me their opinion on the best way to enjoy LPS. Thanks in advance, Ben.
