Luna Park has been hit with a $5000 fine for breaching COVID Restrictions on New Years Eve.

The report is below:

What a coincidence that I've been to LPS today! Ever since I heard about it when they started the investigation, coincidently when I was last there. Am I becoming a curse? I'm very disappointed that LPS weren't able to keep COVIDSAFE during NYE.

A few things have changed since then with the COVIDSAFE plan. For an example, staff and guests are now required to wear masks indoors. And that they should have a mask with them at all times. 

But defiantly guests during NYE could have done more stuff. Like wearing a mask, not running over security, physical distancing, or even a crazy thing called not attending and leaving!

It's very lucky that no outbreak happened, and that nobody died! It's also very lucky that it's just a $5000 fine. It might sound like a lot (it probably is). You would only need around 70 guests to pay it all off with everyone paying $50!

It'll probably be interesting how the mainstream news media thinks about this when they start broadcasting in 5 minutes! Hope things will still stay fine with no troubles!

They've ruined the character of the place by adding non ghetto, quality, permanent install rides.

70 people pay $50 is $3500. That would not cut it- 100 people paying $50 would equal the $5000 fine. Its the simplest of math. You should work on that.

In the grand scheme of things, I think this is a minor blip in the radar. Its not a good look now of course but it appears that that the fine was for NOT adhereing to social distancing rather than their lack of COVID plan- with the NYE fireworks and congregation this let them down. It should have been better managed and with the focus on a lack of people at the harbour by the media this gathering was always going to bring attention. The park will shut down on the 27th January to begin refurbishment- this will be hardly remembered amongst the hoopla of reopening in June. Simple mistake but not a chronic one.

I visited the park for the last time until closing this morning and took a few photos. They aren't great or very interesting but there already might be some progress happening.

Maloney's corner is pretty much unrecognisable now with its two main rides gone.

This excavator is digging a hole inside pink markings. Sorry about the photo quality, the best view of it was from on Round Up. This might be for a footer from Big Dipper as a support goes right to that spot on the concept art.

Similar pink markings were around the area. These ones here might be for the Family Shuttle Coaster.

Most of the red pool fences around the kids rides have been replaced with temporary fencing. I only just noticed that and I have no idea if it's always been like this as it's only around the ones owned by Joylands. 

 

Anyways, I can't wait for what 2021 will bring. This is definitely what Luna Park needed and I still can't believe we're getting this.
