Sydney and nightlife are two things that don’t typically go together. But if you look in the right places, there’s plenty to do in the city when the sun goes down. One night-time adventure to keep on your radar is Luna Park In The Dark — with the amusement park powered down for a series of after-hours activities. The heritage-listed site will turn off over 30,000 lights giving Sydneysiders a unique opportunity to ride rollercoasters in starlight and experience the harbour in complete darkness.
Luna Park in the Dark
There’s heaps to look forward to including an actual power-down ceremony where one guest will get the chance to turn off the lights and leave the park in total darkness in real-time. Wander through the moonlit park and take in stunning views of the city or go on thrilling rides such as the popular Hair Raiser or get 360-degree views of the city from the Sledgehammer. Also on offer are roaming performers who will keep the entertainment quotient high and winter-warming food and drink options like hot choccies and light-up fairy floss.
The park will remain open until 10pm for Luna Park in the Dark from July 12-15. Your Luna Park in the Dark ticket will get you access to unlimited rides and entry to Coney Island from 5pm on the night of your visit. Don’t miss out and grab your tickets here for a fun-filled night jaunt in the city.
