Popular Traditional Fairground Rides For Parties

Fairgrounds have been part of our celebrations for over a 100 years. Nothing else brings such effortless fun and charm to an event.

Entertaining and offering gentle thrills, fairground rides have the ability to lift everyone’s mood. From dodgems and carousel rides to the ghost train, there’s rides to suit people of all ages.

With the weather at its best this summer, it’s a brilliant time to introduce such rides to your event.

When did traditional fairground rides first start to appear?

Although they’ve been around in one form or another for centuries, it was in the 1860s and 1870s when the fairground as we know it came to exist. This was thanks to the invention of the steam powered carousel. People could finally enjoy the first ‘mechanical’ ride- and they loved it!

Not long after, the Ferris wheel first appeared at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.

Rides perfect for all kinds of parties, including those for kids or adults.

No matter if you’re organising a wedding, local celebration or big party, Poplar Attractions has a range of fairground rides available. We have everything from traditional rides and kids’ rides, through to ‘white knuckle’ rides that are strictly for adults.
