THRILL seekers of all ages are in for a treat with the return of Scarborough Fair.

The popular attraction is returning to Scarborough for another year, opening its doors in William Street car park on Wednesday.

The fair has been coming to Scarborough for more than 30 years thanks to the Shaw family.

For the last three years they have enlisted International Funfairs to bring the rides to the Yorkshire Coast.

Stewart Robinson, co-director of International Funfairs, said: “I would say for us Scarborough is a classic fair.

“It has just got something special about it which you don’t always get in other places.

“It is an old established fair, and is on a prime site. We always get a good response.

“Scarborough fair is one we always look forward to on our calendar.”

This year’s fair will see the return of some old favourites like the waltzer and the dodgems, as well as new rides including a new tagada rise which spins passengers around.

The Freak Out is back, which launches riders vertically and spins them round, as is the Buzz Bomb which shoots people 165ft in the air and spins at 70 miles per hour.

This year’s Scarborough Fair runs until Saturday October 1. Rides are open until 10.30pm each night, starting at 5pm Wednesday and Friday, 3pm on Thursday and 12 noon on Saturday.
