There’s excitement for everyone at the funfair, with rides and games stalls offering prizes galore!
One again the funfair is solely comprised of a unique collection of vintage rides from the golden era of fairgrounds. Visitors can enjoy a rare Brooklands Dodgems from 1937, a stunning 1930s Chair-o-Plane, a Ghost Train dating from the 1950s, an exhilarating 1936 Speedway and two exquisite children’s rides: a 1947 Muffin the Mule Autodrome and Hush Hush the Monorail, the oldest ride, made in 1933. The rides have been lovingly restored over the last few years by an outstanding team of local craftspeople, making this year at Yorkshire Winter Wonderland an unforgettable Christmas experience
Organiser of the event James Cundall says, “The team behind Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland strive every year to introduce something new to the event or improve on it in some way. This year the Vintage Funfair is our showpiece – it comprises some outstanding rides which are not only a visual treat but which stand up every bit as well as modern rides in delivering speed, thrills and surprises. In fact our Speedway can go so fast we rarely get it up to its 10th gear!”
