Luna Park Sydney celebrates 80 years
Luna Park Sydney celebrated a monumental birthday on Sunday 4th October, marking exactly 80 years since the park opened in 1935.
Political and business leaders and special guests were treated to a wonderful night of celebrations and entertainment, including entrées and champagne served while riding on the spectacular Luna Park Ferris Wheel.
The night also marked the opening of the international award-winning Ferris Wheel Dining Experience, which will open to the public from Sunday 11th October until 20th March next year.
Boasting Sydney’s best harbourside views, The Deck Sydney restaurant hosted guests for a delectable dinner with matching wines and dessert created by the talented Chef Michael Roper.
After dining, Luna Park Sydney Director, Warwick Doughty, referred to Luna Park Sydney recently winning the award for the best Function Caterer (Sydney Metropolitan) at the prestigious Restaurant and Catering Awards for Excellence and then commemorated this milestone with the cutting of a specially designed birthday cake.
Doughty stated “for 80 years, Luna Park Sydney has brought smiles to the faces of millions, Luna Park Sydney is a place purposely designed and built for fun, pure fun.”
In addition to Luna Park Sydney’s 80th birthday celebrations, the Luna Park team was just recently awarded the Best Function/Convention Centre Caterer (Sydney Metropolitan) at the prestigious Restaurant and Catering Awards for Excellence.
Luna Park Sydney first opened its doors to the public on 4th October 1935 to a 45-metre-long queue buzzing with eager Sydney-siders. With the flick of a switch, Luna Park’s famous grinning face blazed into life with the help of thousands of neon coloured lights.
Today, alongside a number of state of the art modern refurbishments, the park has managed to preserve its authenticity and 1930s style design. Luna Park Sydney has the honour of being one of two amusement parks in the world that is protected by government legislation, and has truly become an iconic part of Sydney and its picturesque harbourside.
