SUPER DELUXE PENNY AMUSEMENTS ARCADE (16 MACHINES) ~ £795.00

SWANEE SIDE STALL ~ £495.00

Our 8 foot side stall joint looks just fabulous in its bygone era hand painted artwork and gold leaf detailing! It contains a game that has sadly become rarer over the years, mainly because its other more popular Hook-a-Duck has taken right over...well here at Traditional Fairground Co, we're all about reviving old games from the bygone era and the Swanee (or Swaney/Swaney stall as it was sometimes named) has lots of 1930's glamour about it, with Swans gliding around in the 'pond' waited to be hooked out with the hooped wand. Our traditional Swanee side stall is the perfect game for all ages and abilities, as a lot of wins are sheer luck based rather than ability.  The winner is the person who matches any of the scores as seen on our winners scoreboard, once the 3 swans they've hooked out of the 'pond' have been added up.

Please note: Electric point is required if wishing to illuminate side stall.  Approximate size of attraction is (h) 8ft x (w) 8ft x (d) 8ft.  Stall takes approx. 1 hours to erect & 1 hours to pull down.  Hire comes with 1 x Members of Staff for the duration of the hire time and up to 100 typical fairground prizes per game. If all prizeware has been won prior to the completion of the agreed hire time, the games can be played on just for fun; no additional prizeware will be available.

SUPER 14FT HIGH STRIKER ~ £195.00

This amazing traditionally hand painted Super High Fairground Striker is so tall it literally feels like it's touching the clouds!

Our 14ft Super High Striker comes unmanned and without prizeware.

TRADITIONAL 4 BAY JUVENILE SWINGBOATS RIDE ~ £495.00

Many fond memories of beachfront holidays come to mind when clients book our lovely Victorian inspired Swingboats Ride, which comes with 4 traditionally decorated boats, suitable for children up to 1.35m in height (approx. 10 years old), seating 8 individuals at full capacity (2 per boat). These boats are powered by the riders themselves, who each have an alternating rope to pull and the speed of the swinging boat can be controlled easily once in rhythm. We're often booked by vintage themed Carnival & Fetes committees, by Schools for science & social history topics and museums wishing to demonstrate Victorian sports and pastimes; what a fun way to learn about these themes it is too! No electric is required to use (unless you'd like the ride illuminated for evening events, in this case you would require an electric socket point), making this is the perfect Eco Ride! Converts to 'Santa's Flyers' Ride for Christmas bookings if preferred. 

 

Must have direct even ground access for van build up and a minimum operating area of 20ft x 12ft.  Ride takes approx. 2 hours to erect & 2 hours to pull down. Comes with a fully trained fairground attendant.
