Sydney’s Luna Park has announced that throughout March it will be offering its popular Ferris Wheel Dining experience on Thursday evenings, adding to the already sold out Sunday dates.
“The experience has been completely sold out for a while now, but people were still reaching out to see if they could book a carriage. We’ve decided to give the public what they are asking for and have arranged another four evenings of fine dining in the sky,” said restaurant manager, Gabrielle Wise.
Hosted by The Deck Sydney at Milsons Point, The Ferris Wheel Dining Experience includes a three course meal to be enjoyed in a private carriage. Boasting views spanning from the Sydney Opera House, across the CBD skyline and sweeping under the Harbour Bridge to Walsh Bay, the concept was recently named ‘Best New Innovation in Food and Beverage’ at the International Association of Amusement Park and Attraction Awards.
The Deck’s brasserie chef, Michael Roper, has created a menu using fresh local produce. The experience begins with a glass of sparkling wine and an Amuse-Bouche upon arrival.
Once in the carriage, guests are served an entre platter to share, including freshly shucked Sydney Rock Oysters, foie gras torchon, wild mushroom tartlet with Woodside goats curd and king crab meat with heirloom tomatoes, baby leaves and cucumber dressing.
For a main course, diners can choose between a fresh barramundi fillet served with peas, kipfler potatoes, lemon beurre blac and red vein sorrel or a confit duck maryland with porcini infused polenta, caramelised witlof and red cabbage puree.
The dessert platter, designed to share, includes a three layered chocolate tart, amaretti with amaretto semifreddo and fresh berries and Cointreau soaked orange cake with lemon curd and candied orange.
Carriages can be purchased for $399 each.
