Luna Park- Trills from 1912

St. Kilda- Melbourne- Austrália 
At night the park was lit up with over 8.000 eletric lights!
When researching Melbourne for my blog I happened to read somewhere that Melbourne is home to the "oldest continually operating rollercoaster in the world".
But Why?
The Scenic Railway at Melbourne's Luna Park. 
The park is tiny by North American theme park standards (17 rides in total, including 'kiddie' rides). The highlight, definitely, is the old rollercoaster, and was built in 1911 for the park's opening in 1912. The entire amusement park is actually contained inside the bounds of the rollercoaster's wooden track, with the famous 'Mr Moon' entraceway incorporated into the construction. The rollercoaster and your ghosts! Fantastic!

Bonsoir Austrália!
