Sydney Luna Park
brief history ...
The idea of Luna Park goes back to Coney Island almost 200 years ago, where an amusement park called Luna Park was opened by Elmer Dundy and Frederick Thompson. Soon after that other people around the world, opened amusements parks called Luna Park.
the first Luna Park was opened in Melbourne followed by one in Adelaide and finally in Sydney on the 4-th of October 1935.
Since 1935 Luna Park encountered a lot "turbulence" somehow similar to some of the rides. During the Second World War was forced to turn off its lights, many people wanted to get a quick buck by developing real estate properties, the neighbors complained about the noise, and so on. What is important, it's that today Luna Park is alive and kicking.
