Luna Park Melbourne
Coasterz 'n' Canyonz Blog Day 01
Watch out Australia.............
The other side of the world - no problem After 4 years of saving and a year of planning the tour is finally under way.
Leaving home mid-afternoon on Friday, we arrived 30 hours later in Melbourne. Flights and bargain "premium" low-cost seating converting into lie-flat beds made the flghts very enjoyable and we're not suffering any jet-lag (yet!!!).
Now for the bad news - IT'S ALL CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!
Very few rides were operating because of the wind - (slightly breezy by UK standards). To say we were gutted is an understatement. The reason for coming to Melboune was not running and we have no chance of doing it another day. One of the oldest operating coasters in the world escapes our "coasters ridden" lists - and we're thinking it will be forever - the chances of us returning in the future are virtually zero. Gutted.
