Magic Kingdom, Sydney
History and operation
The park operated in the 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s. The park was closed not long after Wonderland Sydney opened.
Magic Kingdom was popular at its peak but due to size and location (it could only be accessed by a road which went through an industrial area and residential area) the park struggled to remain viable.
The land is now empty, with only the giant dry slide, the big shoe (not a ride), the lake (natural) and toilets (both male and female) remaining.
The park was small, covering about 36 acres (150,000 m2). Features included:
- Over 15 rides
- Slides (Two open water slides (95 metres long) plus a giant dry slide) 
- Radio-controlled cars
- Picnic area with barbecue facilities 
- Big Shoe
- Petrol-powered mini-boats on a lake 
- In the 1990s' bungy jumping was available at the park.
