Frequently asked questions

Where do we collect our school's ride passes?

Beyond the Thrills organisers will issue your school's ride wristbands to you on the day. One of the teachers from your school needs to meet us (without students) to collect your wristbands at around 10.30-11am, prior to the rides starting.
We will be located at one of the tables near the Big Top (opposite the Ice Cream Parlour). Please do not go to the Box Office.Teachers should then go back to their students to distribute the ride wristbands to their students.

What happens if there is poor weather?

If the weather is extremely inclement (lightning and/or high winds), Luna Park Sydney management reserves the right to temporarily suspend the rides or to close the park early for safety reasons.

Are there lockers at Luna Park Sydney?

Luna Park Sydney has a limited number of lockers available for your convenience. Cost is around $5.00 per 3 hours and $8.00 per 8 hours of use. These lockers can be found near the Carousel ride and under Coney Island.

Can I bring a bag or backpack to Luna Park Sydney?

Please minimise the bags or backpacks brought to the park. It is best that students do not bring bags, backpacks or valuables on the day at all. Bags, backpacks or other personal items are not to be left anywhere unattended, and valuables can be easily lost or stolen.
Note: Clothing pockets should not be used for any loose objects unless zipped up very securely ... as such objects can fall out while on a ride, which is dangerous for people below the ride.
