    Luna Park Sydney's expansion

    Well credit where credits due; the 80's incarnation did give us the current ferris wheel, which still goes strong to this day after 30+ years of operation (excluding that 7 year period where it didn't run).

    No. I really do think the music express that was at Luna Park in the 80's was a different unrelated model to the more know MACK ride that was at the park from 1995-2016. Here's some comparison shots: Here's the "Love Express" in 1982. You'll notice the roof is different compared to... ...the MACK ride which looked more like a tent. (Side note: I am a little disappointed Luna Park didn't give the Rotor it's 2 corner cuts back when they recently renovated it; it would've looked less boxy. But hey, at least "ROTOR" is on both sides of the ride facade now, as well as the back). Also, if you have a copy of "Spirits of the Carnival" (which I don't think is available anymore because of how out of date it is), they show some footage of LPS in the 80's and how soulless it looked. Some of that footage includes the "Love Express", which looks different to the "Tango Train" and it also runs slower. I'd put a link but the docos not available online.

    Damn it I meant to say BEFORE it's LPS days, BEFORE!!! Yeah that looks like the model LPS had in the 80's.

    I did mention before that the former MACK ride was built in the 80's, which then made it's way to Darling Harbour before settling to Luna Park in 1994. I think it might have been called the "Disco Express" or "Disco Train" in it's LPS days; don't know. However, LPS had a completely different model not built by called the "Love Express" from 1982-1988, which has been previously been brought up before on these forums but I can't remember where.

    Well I was at the park on Saturday and I did see some tents on the old Flying Saucer site where the Flying Carousel is proposed to be. Could be for something completely different though. I also noticed they were beginning to pack up their "Save Luna Park" tent.

    That was a different model. But yeah, the MACK ride was also built in the 1980's. Travelled the country before settling into Darling Harbour from 1988-1994, then LPS from 1995-2016. They could. But I didn't think Jamberoo did temporary rides.

    Renovation updates: Went down to the park again today to check out some of the progress they've made on the Wild Mouse Structure. As you can see, it's a MASSIVE improvement to what it looked like before. The awning near the cafe has also been redecorated in order to fit with the circus tent theming. \ In addition, after months of repair, the Tango Train is once again up and running. But something bugged me about it; they never took the opportunity to finish off painting the office! I was told a year ago that painting would be finished once the TT went into maintenance: Come a year later and jack shit has happened. How come? Anyway, that's all that's been happening so far, can't really do much more atm but it's better than nothing.

    Previously I would've agreed with you but @Jobe brought up these points to me on Facebook: I personally think that AlexB is incorrect. This is a totally different situation than what has occurred in other theme parks. It’s unique. As long as the park complies with the noise levels within their operating envelope then this does amount to a restriction of trade. It’s another mountain that the park has to climb that they should NOT have to. the legislation was put in place to protect the park from this sort of nuisance claims. This interpretation is a new view and goes against the spirit of what it was originally put in the first place. The park has complied with everything that has been asked of them and now they want to invest in $20’million worth of new attractions and this occurs. It’s not equitable.
