Luna Park

For my son's birthday we went to down to Luna Park for some fun! 
It's right by the beach in St. Kilda, so very easy to get there. If you're going to plan on purchasing the unlimited ride tickets, plan on staying a while. However, it's also kind of fun to just do one ride on your way to the beach (just be sure your kids understand that you are only doing one ride). According to my kids all the ride were a lot of fun and there was plenty to keep them busy. 
My only complaint was the Circus of Screams attraction. We saw that the line was kind of long so we asked the lady at the front how long she thought it would be and she said about 20 minutes. Nearly an hour and a half later we made it to the front (you go through in groups of 8, each taking about 10 minutes). So take a look at the line, if there are more than 20 people, you'll be there for a while and it's really not worth it. Even my 7 year old thought it was predictable and not very scary. Just a lot of black lights and stuff hanging from the ceiling. 
And if you get hungry, no worries, there's plenty of amusement park food!
