Dius Computing, the software company that Steve works for had arranged to have their Christmas party for employees and their families at Luna Park. This historic amusement park situated at St Kilda, Melbourne was established in 1912 and has been operating almost continuously ever since. The roller coaster is the oldest wooden roller coaster in the world that is still operating and it is a very scary ride – not because of the drops but because of the shaking and rattling of the carriages as they pass over the tracks.

Unfortunately because of other commitments Natasha was unable to join us but we had a great time there with Steve and the children. We had access to unlimited rides and Ben and Emily had numerous rides on the bumper cars, which I think was Ben’s favourite ride. But he was terrified of the pirate ship, which swung so high it felt you would go over the top!

|Where's he hiding!|
