    Luna Park Sydney's expansion

    So, I was reading the Sam Marshall book for the millionth time, and as I looked at the same photo from the '90s that I have millions of times, I saw this ride that looked like the spider from LPM. So I whip up google earth (the old version) and use the satellite view time machine, it's not there... It's probably due to low quality images, but can anyone shed some light on this?

    I think they should somehow make the carpark's lifts go outside the face, since when I was young and didn't go to the park as much, I was always disappointed in how you always popped out behind the face.

    Oh noo! I used to like the shooting gallery before it closed. Also, according to the park map, the Flying Carousel is named the Volare! and will be opening in March.

    BEFORE YOU COMMENT ON THE PHOTO: I DID NOT MEASURE OR CHANGE THE SIZES OF THE ROTOR OR HAIR RAISER! I decided to see what it would look like if we moved the Rotor to where the hair raiser is and the hair raiser on the left side of the face, and since I did not change the sizes of the images, this could open up a space for a new ride where the rotor is right now.

    I know that this will sound really dumb, but I'd actually like a re-themed Power Surge to make it's way into the park as a permanent ride. They have come as temporary rides many times, and I actually love them, and I don't think the locals complain about them, since LPS hasn't gone into the news from one... Anyways, it'd need a lot of repainting and fixing up to make it's way in, but I think that if they put enough effort into it, it could make it's way in. Anyways, I'm open to criticism on my suggestion, so tell me if I'm missing something important...

    In my opinion, The Big Top was a massive mistake, and as it is really popular, it changes LPS from a theme park to a concert hall. Also, the opera house is right across the harbour, so why did they bother? Yes, the park DOES say they have the name rights, but the name "The Big Dipper" was used in many coasters in the '20s, such as The Big Dipper at Blackpool Pleasure Beach in the UK, and the identical wooden Big Dipper from LPM that opened after WWI.

    I got one around Christmas at the park's gift shop on DVD. It is a really good documentary, and I recommend it, but recently, it hasn't been there anymore... Maybe they stopped selling it.

    I can't find any photos of the '80s one, so I'm going to take that as the model. It might also be the same one that LPS had though!

    At the knock-off Easter show at Fox Studios in sydney (I forgot the real name, sorry) I saw an "Ali Baba" ride, which looks like a Rainbow, but with different themeing. There was once one in LPS one holiday, too...

    I think it's just being treated like this because of it's heritage, and people are sometimes idiots

    I heard that the original ride was getting too old, since it opened in the 1980s as "The Love Express". But this is what LPS is doing now. Look at the carousel. It went from being a beautiful hand-crafted steam-powered carousel to being a fibreglass, factory-made one with digital speakers as it's "organs".

    I recently went to the park, and during the TT maintenance, they never got around to CLEANING the ride, since I saw some gum stuck to the edge of the seat. (It could be new though) I also noticed some dust on the middle "sheet" part of the ride, and it seemed bumpier than usual (I do not know if it was only for that one ride..)
  15. I have started to make a remake of The Big Dipper that used to be at Luna Park Sydney. I know that LPM also had a Big Dipper, and since it had the same layout, I am using photos from both parks to make the coaster. These are images of it so far, and if you have any suggestions, please tell me. I want to try to see what the ride was like. I will also work on the entrance and garden at the beginning once the layout is complete.
