Another Fair Weekend

Post by Andylamb » Sat May 17, 2014 3:41 pm

Over the last Bank holiday weekend here in the UK I decided to do a bit of coaster hunting.

Saturday

There seemed to be quite a few fun fairs clustered around Cheshire. So I thought that would be a good place to go


First stop was Crewe, Tipkinder Park to be exact. The coaster here was Mini Coaster that is owned by Craig Jennings

Next stop was a fair in Knutsford, two coasters here...

First a brand new coaster making a debut Runaway Train owned by Michael Mulhearn

Image

Almost didnt get to ride it, as the op said i was to big and would not fit in. Eventually after I pointed out the "for young & old" sign that was in front of the coaster he let me ride :)

Image

The other coaster was Gold Mine owned by Aiden & Blaine Leach

Image

Next Fun fair was in Warrington, Orford Park. 1 coaster here Crazy Chase owned by Reed & Nathan Holland

Image

Next up a little bit of a find! I knew there was a Fun Fair but could not find a ride list. I turned up and found The Happy Caterpillar owned by Freddie Mulhearne.

Next fair was Chester, Little roodee Coach Park. Two Coasters here. First was Runaway Train Owned by John Wheatley. I didn't ride it as I previously been on it in Manchester Winter Wonderland

Image

The other coaster was Crazy Croc Owned by Gareth Smith, A Go Gator

Image
Just to prove I have been on it.....

On the way back home I decided to stop of at a fair in Tamworth. Unfortunaley it was closed along with John Barker's Go Gator :(
