Fun Fair comes to Knutsford for Royal May Day
TWO major new rides will feature among the line up at this year’s Royal May Day Fun Fair in Knutsford, including a one-of-a-kind attraction sure to please thrill-seekers.
The event, which is the largest funfair taking place in the UK over the bank holiday, features well over 50 rides and attractions.
Traveling from Scotland especially to attend this year’s fair will be the Super Spin, a high tech white-knuckle ride featuring six four-seater gondolas that perform a series of hair-raising somersaults as they spin around two axes.
Thanks to ergonomic seating, however, the experience is also incredibly smooth, leaving riders spun but not shaken.
Fair-goers will also be able to reach for the sky on the Millennium, a giant wheel that lifts over 70ft high.
Passengers sit around the outside of the wheel in safely-secured gondolas that swing out so that riders face forwards for the duration of the ride – and turn upside down at the top.
The attraction is the only ride of its kind in the UK and offers a breathtaking way to see the fair from the air.
“We’re really pleased to introduce these two new rides to Knutsford this May Day,” says fair organiser John Collins.
“However, we appreciate that this event is enjoyed by all ages so that’s why we've also got a great selection of family-focused attractions. My personal favourite is the Dodgems, and we've got three separate tracks to cater for demand.”
The fun kicks off at 6pm on Thursday night, April 30, and continues through until Bank Holiday Monday, As well as the Royal May Day pageant itself on Saturday, May 2, a free firework display will also take place from the back of The Heath on Sunday night. Click here for more.
