Snap: All the Fun of the Fair

Our trip two weeks ago to the Bath and West Show gave me another opportunity to join in with Helena's Snap. There were two funfairs in different parts of the showground. There was one with some of those ultra modern rides that throw you in all kinds of directions in the air. This big wheel was part of that collection. There were very few people on it and no price was displayed. I suspect it was rather pricey. I did note it was available for hire and did suggest we could pop it on the front lawn for younger daughter's 18th. I did not get a positive response from farmer husband.


The other fair was far more traditional with what I would call a proper big wheel and a helter skelter.


The steam driven roundabout had a wonderful fairground organ and horses that I was very tempted to try.


This roundabout wasn't quite so appealing!

  3. I love your big wheel photo. I haven't been to the Bath & West show for years but seeing all your photos has made me consider adding it to the list for next year.

  4. Fun Fun Fun found in your SNAP collection. I like that the Carousel horses have their names printed on them. I once, & only once, tried the swing carousel ... I will say no more for now.

  5. I don't think I've ever seen a helter skelter like that in real life. I bet it's great fun to photograph

  8. I do think a funfair needs a traditional helter skelter to look the part
