The Waltzer is a timelessly classic funfair ride. One of the most iconic fairground amusements that provide the whole family with an exciting experience whether it is the 1st time you have been on the waltzer or the 100th.
The Carousel is still as popular today as it was when it first appeared at the fair hundreds of years ago. A funfair really wouldn’t be complete without a carousel and the fact it still pleases crowds today shows what a success it is.
Although the Ferris wheel perhaps doesn't provide the thrill of many other funfair rides, nothing quite catches the eye like the big wheel. Attracting the attention of people miles away and providing a brilliant view when at its very peak, its basic design is unchanged but just like the carousel is still a hit today.
The Round-up is an exhilarating ride which first appeared at funfairs in the UK and USA in the 1950s and has stayed ever since. Also referred to as Zero Gravity, because as the wheel rotates passengers are given the feeling of being stuck on the wall as the ride tilts and spins at high speed.
The Orbiter is another high speed ride which was become popular in recent decades. Satisfying modern fairground goers thirst for speed.
Originally developed for modern theme parks, transportable roller coasters are now often found at funfairs as showmen compete against their rivals. Roller Coasters don’t need much of an explanation as to why they make this list, providing high speed thrills for anyone who dares ride.
