It was there last year and was VERY popular and was at the Bristol Balloon Fiesta this year also so I'd like to say it's very likely AIR will return to Bridgewater this year.

Personally I'm hoping for "Rock Rage" to return again :-)

I've just come back myself. I thought the line up wasn't too bad (for this end of the country at least).

AIR and AtmosFear were no doubt the highlights of the fair this year. I haven't seen a TopScan at Bridgewater fair for many years. The ride I was hoping to see was the return of Rock Rage but I guess 3 pendulum based rides would have been too much for a fair of this size.

As regards to Freddie's Revenge she's looking pretty good after her accident a few years ago. I'd even say she's looking in better shape than some of the newer matterhorns (I.E Thriller).

Nope but did see the Ghost Train heading north on the M5 earlier and police pulling one of the long caravans over by the Weston-s-Mare junction.

I did think about it but decided against it. Did you go? Would like to see some photo's.
