We went on a rainy day and only expected to stay for an hour, 3 1/2 hours later we were still wondering round. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. We took our 5 month old daughter and they offered to run a small carousel ride just for her which we thought was a wonderful gesture. The food was very good and value for money. We were able to listen to all the organs and go on all the rides. A thoroughly good morning!

Everyday is different some hectic with coach parties and school trips and some slower and more relaxed. I'm glad you were able to linger a while and enjoy the music.

My husband and I recently visited the scarborough fair collection it was very entertaining, you get one free ride included in your admission charge the rest you pay for , the carousel or galloping horses have always been my favourite they had even got a horse with my name on, they also have a selection of Wurlitzer organs which are played simaltanously, and for those people who remember the film the Iron Maiden well you can see the Iron maiden traction engine here there is also a bar where you can buy food ands drinks It is well worth £7.00, £6 for senior citizens

I did think it was a bit expensive for what it is but if you are going for the tea dance then it is worth it.

The ride surprised us but that's because of how fast it went, we went on 'Noah's Ark'

Went with friends on Wednesday afternoon to the tea dance.
The music for the dancing was live ,on a wurlizer organ.
We also enjoyed the museum were you can ride on old fair ground rides, and see the collection of vintage and other vehicles.
There is a nice inxepensive cafe, and the staff make you feel so welcome.
This is the fourth time we have been to this attraction and we will be there again quite soon.
