Carnivals and funfairs have a long history of entertaining both adults and children all over the world. Whether it is the creaking anticipation of a roller coaster ride as it rattles away to a start or the intoxicating sway and spinning of a Ferris wheel, the thrill of the adrenalin rush is addictive. These are memories that will last a lifetime. There is something special about that initial thrill as you near the front of a queue for a carnival ride or step up to the counter for a shooting or throwing game. Funfairs and carnival rides can make any adult feel like children again, you only need to look at people’s smiling faces to see this.
The first carnival rides date back to the 19th century and formed a part of most traveling circus acts. The carnivals were not permanently located and moved with the circuses. Most carnivals combine a series of rides with carnival games and over time the games and rides have incorporated the latest technologies to increase the levels of entertainment. Carnival shows are also proving to be very popular with entertainers like clowns, comedians, jugglers, magicians and puppet artists showing off their skills. Most carnivals are also concessionaires by offering various foods and drinks. The most famous “carnival foods” include candy floss, popcorn, ice cream and candy apples.
