The York Fun Fair Fun Park is returning to the City and once again promises a great value day out for families from far and wide when it visits the Roko Health Club next to Clifton Moor Retail Park from Thursday May 13th through until Sunday 23rd May with over 20 rides and attractions.

Rides and attractions set for York Fun Fair Fun Park

“We have gone above and beyond,” says George Rowland Tucker one of the organisers, “the rides and attractions once inside the fun park are all treated with a disinfectant fog on a regular basis and we are fully compliant with all Government guidelines in relation to reducing COVID-19 and mitigating any risks to our guests who for a one off admission charge of £7.99 can ride for up to two hours of fantastic fun on all the rides if they arrive at the start of a session! We are so excited to be back and ready to welcome everyone to our attractions but we do have measures in place which any visitor must follow if they wish to come along and have some fun to make everyone as safe as possible. Therefore, we ask that nobody attends the fair if they have symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has had Coronavirus in the last 14 days. We will be maintaining the rule of 6 and also we are asking guests over 16 to use our test and trace application this is a requirement by law, so we advise visitors have the app on their phones or are prepared to leave details at the gate. Facemasks are required when queuing for or riding all our large attractions although under 11’s are exempt and are not required to wear a mask. We have widened our aisles and ask everyone to keep their distance from other guests and have sanitiser at all our attractions. We feel we have done more than most to ensure our guests can have a safe enjoyable day out.”

And it is the rides that are the biggest attraction, especially as guests can enjoy spin after hair-raising spin with an unlimited ride wristband on amazing attractions from white knuckle thrillers to wholesome family fun. Most spectacular is set to be the Snow Storm which spins rider’s upside-down spinning in suspended seats for an exhilarating experience they will never forget.

Families will love the Dodgems, the G Force or the Waltzer while the Sizzler Twist always proves popular with the families. There will also be a brand-new kids Roller Coaster, the Cliffhanger and an amazing selection of children’s rides. Food and games and Bungee Trampolines are payable once inside the security-controlled site so mum and dad can always enjoy a coffee while the kids are enjoying the rides.

Saturdays and Sunday’s there will be 4 sessions from 11.00–1.00pm, 1.30-3.30pm, 4-6.00pm, and 6.30-8,30pm. while midweek there will be two sessions from 4-6.00pm and 6.30-8.30pm. Wristbands are on sale for a one-off charge of £7.99 Height restrictions apply on some attractions while non riding adults accompanying children who are sampling the attractions pay just £2.00.
