Re: Fairground rides. Yay or Nay?

Fri Jul 05, 2013 12:19 pm

I live in Hereford where we have a major fun fair take over the streets every May for 3 days. (Mostly Danter Bros I believe).

Indeed crime does go up but it is unfair to pin that on the showmen. I would say it's more to do with the rogues attracted into town taking advantage of how busy it is. Pick pockets & shoplifters etc. My local paper too has documented a rise in home and garden theft during may fair week - but this could be local crims knowing that the occupants are more likely to be in town enjoying the fair.

On subject I'd much rather pay to make a day of it and go to a theme park than go on travelling rides. It is probably totally in my head but I just feel safer.

YAY :D :D !!! I love funfairs and actually prefer them to theme parks as they are so much more interesting than roller coasters! And i get so fustraited about the bad reputation they always get, i know of a ride that was not allowed to open just because the latch on the entrance gate was broken.

At one entrance fee of just £6.99, you can ride has many rides as you like during four hour sessions.

The Worldwide Travelling Theme Park - Monty Hammonds

Seriously, there are much MUCH better fairs out there than those. Goose Fair and Hull in the UK, and absolutely tons in Germany and the Netherlands.
