  1. Hi all, new here and thought I'd share since it hasn't been discussed yet. As of Jan 11th winter sports world received formal approval of their DA originally lodged almost a year ago. The development will cost $400 million and seems to be finally coming to fruition. The facility will include a 300m long advanced open ski run for experienced skiers and snowboarders and will also feature a snow play area for families as well as "ice-climbing and crevasse outdoor rock climbing". The building will also contain a 4.5 star 170-room hotel with conference and function rooms. I believe the original proposal included an ice rink however that has since been removed. Here are the artist renderings for the current building. Versus the original concept art
  2. Wondering if there’s going to be any Easter show type things at Sydney in the hoildays? Like with traveling thrill rides and stuff? Also does Sydney have any dry rides outside of Luna park? Like the Gold Coast has the slingshot and vomit-Tron has Sydney got anything similar?
  3. Hi all, Just wanna let you all know that I’m now officially employed with Luna Park Sydney! I’ll be working in Head Office helping with Disability & Inclusion within the park starting next month. As somebody who’s experienced the highs and lows of someone with a disability, you should see over the next few months changes around the park to make it as accessible as possible. If you have any ideas, please do let me know and I’ll see what I can do. But enough with the boasting, let’s talk about the actual interview! Please note that this is as of November/December 2022. This was for casual roles within the park for the summer. That was my original intent until they offered it to me instead as it’d be more productive and less stressful. The activities and qualifications required may change in the future. So always read the fine detail and check with the park what’s required before arrival. For more fine detail, please also contact the park before you arrive. And please don’t rely on some squeaky teen online for all your information, I’ll only be talking broadly about what happens. I‘ve kept it as a secret until everything was set up with my new role, which happened yesterday. To apply, Luna Park normally announces the application a few weeks before the interviews, and those are just under a month before you start. You also need to be 16, make a resume, and have some form of ID on you, like a Passport, Drivers Licence, or Photo Card. Then you can apply online with a Google Questionnaire. There were 12,000 people that came to the interviews on 22/11 and 3/12/22. So it was very busy and they had to do it in a way to process as many people through as possible. So please be patient and if you require assistance, please contact them before arrival (but don’t worry if you forget, there are staff there to help). You might be able to bring someone to support you if you ask in advance. Once you arrive, you’ll be greeted by a staff member who’ll direct you over to the Coney Island entrance and you’ll sign in at Hungry Horse. You’ll be assigned a number in order of arrival, remember this number as it’s important for later. You’ll be given free Popcorn and Fairy Floss while you wait. Your group will then get called and you’ll get sent to Crystal Palace. You’ll start at the Sunset Room and be greeted by staff and you’ll sit in front of the TV and be shown a tape which explains what all the roles mean and what it’s like working at the park. After this, you’ll have one of many opportunities to ask questions to the staff. The group will then split to 6 corners of the room depending on what you applied for. There’s Sideshow/Merchandising, Rides (18+, not for THAT kind of reason), Guest Relations/Ticketing, Cleaning, Venues, and Food & Beverages. You’ll then get a colour sticker on your tag distinguishing you for which role you’re applying for. You’ll then proceed to the ballroom by your number. You’ll be greeted with some music played by the managers. You’ll then be put in a circle where you’ll introduce each other and get to know each other and do some more dancing! And remember you’re doing it in front of just under 100 people! Surprisingly everybody made it through that. The only comment I’ll make is that I aced it (probably)! You’ll then be put in a line behind the wall by number and be sent upstairs where you’ll wait to get interviewed. The lower the number, the sooner the interview starts. See? That’s why it’s important to be early! After the interview, you can go on free rides on Dodgem City and Big Dipper over and over again! And maybe even see a TV show being made! If you got hired, you’ll have a training day about a week or two later and then start when the School Holidays start. Hope that this helps anybody applying to the park and I wish you all the best!
  4. I've always have had this question fueling in my mind. Personally, I think that probably another incident. Maybe even worse would have happened. But, let's pretend that there was NO INCIDENTS AND THERE NEVER WAS! I think Wonderland would of never been built because it was because of the void of LPS that got Wonderland going in the first place. 7 people would still be around today. A family would not be in smithereens. Probably the owners would of either tried to knock down the park like they tried to do in the early 70s. It may of been successful. But I think that if it stayed. The Big Dipper, the Ghost Train, and the River Caves would have also became heritage listed. I don't think that Maloney's Corner, and Lavender Green would exist in this world. And lots of rides around the front of the park and where the Wild Mouse is today would move around. It would look more like Luna Park Melbourne now basically. But what do you think? And also I want you all to check out this video uploaded by Yyosh. It's about Clive James going into a empty and abandond LPS in 1991 during a storm. It's great, and I think you should watch it too!
  5. Luna park has had yet, another down since 1995! This one is not that bad but is going to be written down in the history books! The Milson's point ferry warf has been under repairs for over 3 months and at about 1:00 PM today (29/8/17), the 200 tone crane has snapped and sent a metal rope flying, damaging the blue part on top of the hair/spikes (whatever they are) In the above photo, you can see how the metal rope dangling from the top above the forehead Luckily, the park was closed today and nobody was harmed. Witnesses say they thought a bomb went off. "I heard the bang but didn't know what it was, so I jumped in the tender and raced out to see if one of our tenant's boats had exploded," Daniel Da Silva said The metal rope has been removed from the face and now people are trying to find out how serious the damage is.
  6. Hey everyone! This is my first post sooo yeah! I'm gonna review some of the rides I went on at the RES 2015, so I hope you enjoy! Freak Out: One of my favourite rides of the show! The ride was very smooth and the lap bars were TIGHT! They gave an amazing sensation. After my 3rd go the operator let me on for free! RODE: 8 Times Crazy Coaster/ Crazy Spinning Rollercoaster: Great fun but a little rough. Its a great family ride but for thrill seekers its a bit of a 'eh'. Rode: Twice Mega Drop: Was fun, but over fast. The operator was having fun so that was good. He had the smoke machine and everything! He held us at the top for a while which was good also and that drop was amazing! RODE: Once Bad Ass Zipper: Lets just say it was fun... AT FIRST. I got so sick on this ride that its unbelievable, and Im' not the one that usually gets sick on rides. Not my favourite in the whole show... RODE: Once No Limit: Wow! You could really feel those 5g's of power! It was crazy fun and fast but expensive too. RODE: Once CarnEvil: Its a real shame the relied on animatronics to scare you this year. The actors were way scarier last year so it wasn't as great. Awesome theming though! RODE: Once Hangover: The wristband is GREAT value. I bought it and rode it all night! Its a great ride and its very smooth! RODE: 9 Times Rock Star: It was a bit boring and my head kept hitting the bar. RODE: Once Rock And Roll: Chant's did a great job on this one, however I'm POSITIVE that the top speed isn't 120mph. RODE: Once SlingShot: WOW, WHAT A RIDE!! But $30 bucks is WAY to expensive. RODE: Once Space Roller: Good fun and VERY smooth. Harnesses were exact same as no limit and TIGHT. Does anyone know who manufactures those harnesses? Power Surge: A great classic and still has that kick to it. I remember ages ago at the Huskisson carnival when it was brand new and I rode it 7 times in a row! RODE: Once Taipan: A fun little roller coaster! Sadly I never rode the thrillseeker at Sea World, so it was good to see what it was! RODE: Once Pirates Revenge: Great water ride! Was a shame it was 8 coupons though. A bit expensive if you ask me! RODE: Once Mayhem Manor: WOW, this walkthrough was scary! A great addition to the easter show and would love to see it next year. The lady outside it announcing everything was SOOO funny xD. RODE: Once Super Slide: Oh god, I didn't know it was an O'neils ride..! Was fun, but 'eh', you know. RODE: Twice Speed 2: Pretty scary and I love the new LED lights. RODE: Once In conclusion, this years show was fun, but a lot more expensive with a lot less rides. The reason I went on so many was because I know someone who works the tickets. So we got a bunch of free coupons. Hope you enjoyed ;D Wil_i_am_not
