The River Caves

Based on the Sweetie Monster from the original Luna Park, the River Caves Ride concept takes the carnival goer on a watery ride through the monsters body in the depths of the Carnival’s ‘Mountain’. Entering through its darkened mouth, the boats pass through a series of tableaus as if the old Luna Park and its inhabitants have been swallowed by the Monster. Passing various original Luna Park characters including Fairy Floss, Larry and Lizzie Luna and Kewpie Doll as well as a new collection of ‘feral fish’, the cavers find themselves progressing through hilarious, dramatic and surprising spaces including the sunken city of Old Luna Park and a raucous food party before being finally hauled up and pushed out the back end of the body.
