Luna Park Swings!

Released by Luna Park Sydney Venues on Tuesday, 26 March 2019

Luna Park Sydney has launched a brand-new family thrill ride, Volaré, a magical wave swinger overlooking Sydney Harbour, now open to the public.

The latest addition to Sydney’s only fun park will be the highest and largest wave swinger in Australia. Volaré, meaning ‘to fly’ in Italian, will swing high over Luna Park, with incredible views of the water and Sydney Harbour Bridge as it spins at speeds of up to 65 km per hour.

Luna Park Sydney Director Warwick Doughty is thrilled to see the new ride up and running a.nd welcomes people of all ages to come in and experience the magic of flight on Volaré.

“Volaré is a special addition to Sydney’s Luna Park as it was designed especially for the Sydney icon and reflects the Park’s rich history and character,” he said.

Specially handcrafted for Luna Park Sydney by a world class Italian ride manufacturer, Volaré will enhance Sydney’s skyline with a magical display of over 3,500 LED lights. The ride’s artwork was designed with both Luna Park’s heritage and vibrant personality in mind, featuring iconic Showtime characters such as Luna Bob and Luna Belle. Luna Park Sydney’s resident artist Ashley Taylor, has also hand-painted the boarding area with images of cityscapes, clouds and a star-studded sky as people enter the ride.

The opening of Volaré has added significance because it is the first ride to open at Luna Park since the Park’s long- term future was placed under a cloud by a ruling in the NSW Land and Environment Court in August 2018.

Thanks to the tens of thousands of people across NSW who supported the #SaveLunaPark campaign, late last year the NSW State Government amended the necessary planning policies to allow Luna Park to operate as a viable and successful business and remain at the heart of Sydney.

Volaré opened its gate to the public on Sunday, 24 March for the first time alongside the Park’s food stalls and other attractions, and is the perfect reason to head back into Luna Park Sydney this month and the upcoming school holidays.
