Funderworld's annual Easter event will once again take place on Durdham Downs, starting on Friday 5th April the event will run everyday until Sunday 28th April.
Adding to this years excitement the organisers behind the Event have just taken ownership of a brand new Ride called Ultimate Waltzer..! So although this type of Ride has been around for almost 100 years, this one is fresh out of the factory & all these years later the ride is still as popular today as they were way back then.
On first impressions the Ride looks like a Traditional machine decorated with Fairground style artwork using todays vibrant colours, gives it a strikingly modern but still original look. Don't be fooled by appearances this is a state of the art brand new machine has been very cleverly designed for todays world, ingenuously folding out for set up and dismantle, eliminating a vast amount of heavy lifting which is usually required with this type of Ride.
The lighting system is all LED not only reducing the running costs, more importantly it will reduce carbon. The biggest surprise of all is that this fantastic new Ride has been manufactured by a local company here in Bristol. Funderworld at the Downs will be the Rides first venue, the the owners are ultimately excited for opening night.
Funderworld promises more than ever for Families this year, so as well as new Rides the event will be hosting Live daily Entertainment. The company have bought in Artizani who are renowned for excellent Street Theatre & Stage Show as well as Stilt Walkers and the famous Lobster la a Cart.
All of this adds to the already spectacular line up of stuff on offer at Funderworld this year, the event is home to some of the biggest and best Rides in Europe including 3 Roller Coasters a 60m Sky Swing Ride and Power Shot...a human catapult which ejects passengers 55m into the air in under 2 seconds. There's also a massive selection of Family & Childrens Rides, Inflatables, Ghost Train & Haunted House a Fun House and a giant Boot that Children can climb inside and participate in various activities, as well as an extensive and tempting array of food & Games.
