Luna park 9 new rides construction


Recommended Posts

Can confirm boomerang trains are still covered over and aren't on the track yet, however another ride got installed quickly over the week and Sledgehammer is about to be installed with the platform being worked on and the columns staged on the side

Also, I’ve been accepted as a rides attendant tonight for Luna Park! Training starts soon! Ever since I started playing RCT3 and watching Theme Park Review on youtube 13 years ago, I never imagined it

Vertical construction on Boomerang has started and Bug looks basically complete

Good Morning everyone. And welcome to another exciting update of the construction. On Tuesday, I was looking from the Harbour Bridge on the train home, and I went. Oh goodie! A ride that will mak

I don't think Luna Park rides need logos. For the entirety of the park's history, the closest we've had to logos are stylized letters or bridges. If Luna Park just slaps these logos on small signs, that'll be very disappointing.

They should probably follow the theme they've been going for recently, like the signs at the entrances of Tango Train and Volare, or even Sledgehammer based on the concept artwork. Just fancy words.

 

Take a look at the base of the the original Tumblebug. There's a long mural across the queue with paintings of the iconic bug, the 'main character' of the ride. Since Little Nipper doesn't have a bridge but still has a 'main character', similar paintings of a cartoon shark along the base of the loading platform would IMO give the ride more soul than a fibreglass train and a copy-paste print around the back.

They installed the logo a few weeks ago. So I was expecting for it to look like a Barbie Logo. Nothing too bad about that.

Ugh. That is still such a stupid name. Not even "Whirly Bug" or "THE Bug"; just BUG. Sounds so underwhelming! I can't get over it!

I agree. The words looks a bit underwhelming. But when you sound it. It's too overwhelming! It's something that someone probably will change in the future. Everyone will probably call it "the Bug".

One thing of I noted is this scaffold setup against the Northcliff St stairs:DA1A157B-8B47-4F99-99A1-DD3C7F2DE827.thumb.jpeg.6ab74336ccf8b3d8590db7af23375763.jpeg

why does that logo make it look like it was made in the late 80s to mid 90s

  1. I'm surprised you'd even know what the mid-2000's looked like.
  2. Luna Park is very much retro-focussed, with classics like the Rotor, the Wild Mouse and Coney Island. Ultra modern and edgy just doesn't fit the theme they've got going to begin with, so if you're picking up retro vibes from it, they've probably hit it on the head.

Based on the logos so far, I doubt there's any intention behind it. Looks like the work experience kid's attempt. All the other recent new rides at LPS payed homage to the 1930's heritage of the park, and did it really well. This is a definite departure.

Why is there a half dot a different size to the rest?

 

Anyhow, the video is on the ride page

 

 

What is also interesting is that we can discern the other ride names by looking at the trophies on the website you can earn for each ride:

The "New Thrill Ride" would indeed be Sledgehammer.
