This place was a great discovery! We want as a family with 2 teenagers. We absolutely loved the vintage fair rides which have been restored and you are allowed to ride for £1. The best one was the 'Thriller' absolutely hilarious and we couldn't stop laughing. Even the teenagers who were not keen to visit here had the best time.... More

We enjoyed our brief visit to Scarborough Fair Collection with the coach company, Johnsons, we were travelling with. It was interesting viewing the collection of old cars. We thoroughly enjoyed the wurlitzers performing. It was a nice friendly atmosphere.

We had a fairly large group, mixed ages from toddlers to adults. Great day. Staff really nice and friendly. Rides were brilliantly restored and maintained. Kids loved it and so did us older ones.

The children loved all the Fair ground rides they could ride for £1. No queuing for rides & they were often on them all by themselves. Staff were friendly & informative.... More

The site of the collection was a bit of a surprise i suppose being next to a caravan park, but then why not. The lay out has been well planned with many old fairground attractions that date back to my childhood and earlier that somehow have disappeared over time and it's not until you see them again that you realise...
