Every Halloween brings with it the same tired costume parties where thrills are cheap and scarce, but if you’re looking for a night of frights and fun then Luna Park is the place to be.
On Friday the 31st of October, Luna Park will transform into Luna Dark for one night of Halloween thrills. As the brave enter, the familiar face of Mr. Moon will greet you with a slightly more menacing grin and upon crossing into the spook-tacular world you will encounter all sorts of ghostly ghouls. Between the extended hours of 6pm-midnight, guests can enjoy behind-the-scenes ghost tours and feast upon green fairy floss and snow cones in the company of roaming zombies, as well as enjoying all the usual rides.
Those who arrive dressed in full Halloween costume can purchase one Unlimited Ride Pass (13 years and older – $48.95) and will receive another of equal or lesser value for free. There will also be a Best Dressed Competition where creatures of the night have the chance to win prizes. At Luna Park the little monsters have not been forgotten. Face painting and a trick-or-treat treasure hunt will take place at 4pm on Acland Street and all of the familiar rides and amusements will also be open.
Celebrating its 102nd year, Luna Park are well equipped to deliver eerie surprises in the most fun way. This Halloween forget the lame Game of Thrones costume party and join in on the hair-raising thrills at Luna Dark and don’t forget to hashtag your adventures #lunadark.
