Rich, I can't take this anymore, I'm terribly sorry. Shifty, WTF is this? You've got to be kidding. You are deadset cracking jokes. Mate, not very often I'm lost for words, however in your case...

As for going, I personally don't think I'd pay 85 bucks to go to that opening. There is not a huge array of talent in that last as far as I'm concerned. Except for really Marina Prior, David Campbell, Todd McKenny and maybe the Tap Dogs. The others, I've never heard of. I probably wouldn't pay to see any of them normally. I reckon $85 could be a little steep. I know it's probably a historical night and all but geez... Who here would pay 85 bucks for what they're offering?

Well firstly I didnt see anything wrong with his opening line. Secondly the $85 cover charge is a fair bit, but if you are into performing arts it would be the ideal package. Not only are you there on opening night, but you get to see all these great artists doing their thing! Me personally, am not going. Its not my type of thing. I'l prob be goin later in the month though.. Screammachine

Yeah I agree that $85 is way too much otherwise I would definitely go. Am interested to check out the new 'Big Top' venue. Don't forget Luna Park needs everyones support this time round. They have had a lot of trouble already with the local residents and had to make a lot of concessions which could lead to financial troubles for them in the future. We all need to get to Luna Park at some point and support them as much as possible. At least it is owned by an Australian company with the best interests of the site at heart. Don't forget entry is free

You're just as bad as he is. You're tarred with the same brush anyway. :P Willsy, is that meant to be GENEROUS or what? Sure, but people are not going to go to the opening night to specifically see these people I wouldn't think.

there is only 1 way to get in for free, if anybody went to luna park on the last day before it closed for its rehab, people who rode the last few rides of the big dipper received a t-shirt saying i went on the last big dipper ride. Anyone who has this shirt will be able to go on the opening night for free. I think you have to consult someone for tickets but. My friend has a few free tickets but he isnt planning on going, but i saw the t-shirt its nothing special, but he rode the last few rides.

Nightshifter that's rubbish, I've worked at Luna for a long time (including the Dipper's last day on 27 Jan 01) and I can assure you that your friend is taking you on a bigger ride than the Dipper. We were flogging those shirts from our intended bulldoze in November 1999 through to the actual closure in January 2001. You are right on one point though- those shirts are bloody ordinary.

I'll second that Buddy, my pop knows the people who first run the place, and now with the new owners- Metro-Edgeley they couldn't give a rats about some stupid t-shirt and free entry. They want to start fresh. :)
