Luna Park’s electric dreams came to a smoldering close in 1909. Over one hundred years later, two explorers came across the cinders of Frederick Ingersoll’s fantastic Mystic River ride. This ride was Ingersoll’s greatest work, and traverses his wildest dreams and most reviled nightmares providing a real live look inside of the brain of a genius of amusement.
The Luna Park project is an excavation into Pittsburgh’s past, present, and future. Take a ride on the hour long Mystic River spectacle for the fantastic Luna wonderland experience, then visit the gallery and examine the trolley park’s artifacts. Bathe in nostalgia! Revel in excitement! Let the amusement seeker inside out to play!
