Nottingham Goose Fair returns from Wednesday 2 to Sunday 6 October 2013 to thrill and delight city residents and visitors.
With more than 700 years of history, Nottingham Goose Fair is one of Europe's most famous travelling fairs, and is still a fantastic event to delight all ages.
The Forest Recreation Ground will once again host over 500 attractions, from the latest white knuckle experiences, family rides and favourites including waltzers, carousels and Hook-a-Duck.
In 2012 there was a new ride - 'AtmosFear' making its first appearance at Goose Fair. It moved passengers through 360 degrees in all three dimensions. The arm of the ride rotated high in the sky with the end of the arm also rotating along with the passenger seats. The ride was about 23 metres high at the top of the swing to increase the scare factor!
For thrill-seekers there are normally around 100 adult rides and exhibitions. Last year alongside the AtmosFear there was the Touchdown, Magic Mouse, Sizzler Twist, Vertical Limit, Chaos as well as Dodgems, Waltzers, Ghost trains, Matterhorns, Giant wheels, Mouse coasters and Funhouses.
Along with the traditional Goose Fair food of mushy peas and mint sauce, candy floss and brandy snaps, visitors will be able to eat their way around the world with chestnuts and doughnuts to food from the Caribbean, Chinese noodles, Indian kebabs, Spanish churros, paella and French crepes.
Come along and experience the dazzling array of sights and sounds!
As always, admission to the ground is FREE!
