Our last park of the trip, Feshane Luna Park, is on the southern shores of the Golden Horn. This mid- size luna park has a fair selection of rides to keep the whole family happy. It is in need of some general tidying up and some organisation. During my visit the park was empty, but to be fair, i did visit in the early afternoon on a week day. Feshane Luna Park is away from the train/tram network, so to get to the park, one has to catch a ferry from Eminönü to Ayvansaray or Eyüp and walk a few minutes north from Ayvansaray or South from Eyüp. Even easier would be to take a taxi to the park-the option we used due to time restrictions.

Other rides in the park
The reason for coming here......Bruco, a Levent Lunapark's Brucomela model coaster.
The coaster needs a push to get going.

Controls for all you nerds out there.
Who spotted the baby on lap?
Kid still eating ice cream, baby in lap and lap bars open in empty seats.....Far more relaxed rules than other countries’ amusement parks.
Yes it's a Levent model.

The park operates a ride token system.
