  1. Yay! I cannot tell how it's presence in that location bothered me so much. Is it gone from the park for good or has it been moved elsewhere?
  2. Finally went to Luna Park for the first time since the start of the pandemic. The place was PACKED. And a few pictures were taken. Appears the Rotor has finally reopened for the post-Covid world. New map of the park. This appears to be the modern version of the old Luna Park photo studio: Green Screen photography. I do not like the Rockin Tug in this location. Original Big Dipper carriage on display. A new photo studio for your roller coaster pics is opposite. Wild Mouse facade still in progress. Four years since the overhaul was first started… Luna Land. Which I hope can be zhuzhed up with more theming and bridges when budget and finances and permit. Big Dipper in action.
  3. I still personally maintain that tight budgets are preventing more ambitious theming at this moment in time.
  4. That's better lol. And regarding my previous response I was only teasing; blame the neighbours for complaining about everything LPS related to begin with.
  5. I mean the rides actually look PERMANENT for one thing at least. They just need beefed up embellishment. But like I said I honestly think money's just too tight right now. Once more events can be held at the Big Top and Crystal Palace that's when the cash starts to flow in and some can be invested in finishing off park theming.
  6. I finally got to return to the park for the first time in months this evening which was a perfect opportunity to see the current status of LPS with my own eyes. I took photos (duh). First, the Big Dipper: I also took a video of it undergoing a test run: IMG_6274.mov Next, a few outside shots of "Luna Land". I noticed that unlike the midway, the music playing was contemporary pop music (Sledgehammer had, well, Sledgehammer by Peter Gabriel for example which is hilarious considering how innuendo ridden that song is and it's playing at a family destination lol), which would suggest this section of the park is going for a more "modern" flavour. Apart from lack of theming and bridges the fact that a banner for Luna Land was erected instead of a proper sign as was proposed in the concept art seems to suggest that they ran out of money to add more desired embellishments at this time: I also got video of the Boomerang in action: IMG_6273.mov Thirdly, the Wild Mouse track looks to be intact again though I'm sure restoration and repair is still in progress. You can tell which parts of the structure have and haven't been overhauled: And finally a photo of what's sure to make many LPS history buffs cream themselves, restoration of the original Big Dipper carriage has been making great progress: (Side note: I also took these of the workers walkway passing under the Big Dipper. I still think this section of path should be opened up to the public to make it easier for disabled access and to make Luna Land more connected to the rest of the park in general)
  7. Wonder if they'll ever demolish the old Plantation tour track completely? Also I still want the Bunyip back and part of the expanded water park and I will die on this hill.
  8. Probably to do with that video I saw on Facebook where the ride got stuck upside down for a good minute. Yes that did happen.
  9. So 9 News did a story last night on Luna Park before they reopen. I think it's safe to say, judging by the mere banner they have for "Luna Land", as opposed to the proper signage in the concept art, money genuinely really is tight with them atm and so theming has had to take a back step. https://fb.watch/8NTy22YqPl/
