Innovations

Avalanche

Fairgrounds are always full of fun equipment with bright lights, music and special effects. Wonderful and traditional fairground art alongside the high quality sound systems add to the pleasure of the rides and attractions themselves.

However Carnival Funfairs have now been able to take this concept further and can create tailor made rides and entertainment to meet any and all themes.

Christmas Bauble Concept Design

Here we are delighted to give you a glimpse of our latest innovations, presently under construction, to be used in the magnificent Winter Wonderland Festival in Hyde Park as an example of our creativity.

Last winter, Joseph Manning delighted the hundreds of thousands of families who visited this superb Central London festival by operating two special Christmas Crackers. The first was a Reindeer Ride, complete with Rudolf and the gang with antlers and snow scenes. The second, a jumping Christmas Tree.

The Real Christmas Bauble Ride

The authentic look of the rides gave no inkling that these rides were not specially built, but were in fact adapted fairground family favourites. With imagination and considerable expertise Joseph Manning had redesigned and decorated a Pony Express Ride and a Mini Drop Tower from his fairground catalogue for this festival.

One of Joseph Manning's innovative designs have gone from an artist’s impression, above, to an entertaining realisation, displayed in the photograph on the right of the page.

The ride, called the Christmas Bauble, was a star of the Winter Wonderland Festival in Hyde Park in the centre of London. This attraction was a huge success and caused more excitement and laughter than the Giant Wheel or the huge Toboggan Slide that stood alongside.

So now you know we actually deliver what we promise! With imagination and ability, we can theme our rides to fit any and all occasions.

Themes and Adaptations

Christmas Dodgems

For this coming Christmas, Joseph has again expressed his creative skills to design even more delights like a giant Christmas Tree with baubles (by adapting the popular Tornado Ride), a Snow Dragon Slide (using a traditional snake slide).

Snow Dragon Slide (Ice Dragon)

This unique ability to adapt favourite attractions to meet special themes is a innovative approach to the outdoor amusement industry and offers great value for money.

There is no need to commit the major capital expense to design and build a brand new ride when Joseph can adapt an existing item of equipment to fit in perfectly with your ideas.

After all, every ride is an adaptation of existing tried and tested systems from the past, as most spin, lift, twirl or judder, but it is that final few yards of decoration and special effects that takes something good and makes it super special.

Xmas Train Innovation

However, innovations in theory are great, but here is one in action as we introduce the wonderful Santa Express that will feature in Hyde Park this coming December as the focal point of Winter Wonderland, and Santa’s Special Train will be featured for the first time ever in Britain.

This eye catching adaptation of a fairground favourite shows how, with the ingenuity of Carnival Funfairs, an attractive and popular ride can become the star of your festival.

Joseph Manning is the only person in Britain who can demonstrate his ability to deliver this innovative with a value for money service and make your special event unforgettable, which is why Carnival Funfairs should be your first call for your needs.
