Crystal Palace Funpark - until 12th August 2012

I saw a poster for a local funfair (or is it fun fair?) while I was out-and-about yesterday. I thought I remembered enough key details to let me find it online. Alas, I could not find it! If this blog post gets indexed by Google quickly enough, maybe it will help other people find the information they need.

I found another poster this morning and took a photograph of it...

Poster for Crystal Palace FunPark

And here are some key details:-

  • Apparently, it's "Europe's largest mobile theme park" (and by that, I'm assuming it means theme park that moves around, and not a theme park based around phones)
  • It's at Crystal Palace Parade, Top Terrace, Crystal Palace, London, SE19 1UD (I'm guessing they mean in the park).
  • It's there from Wednesday 1st August 2012 to Sunday 12th August 2012, and is open every day from 1pm to 9pm, but it looks like in two sessions.

Sessions? Yep, it's a theme park / funfair / fun fair / fairground / fair ground (all words I was trying to use to find the darn thing) where you pay an entrance fee of £6.99, and then get unlimited rides. However, your wristbands only last for a maximum of a 4 hour session - either 1pm to 5pm or 5pm - 9pm - so time your trip carefully!

No booze/alcohol/drugs allowed.

There's limited information on the rides they have - "Davis's Earth Shaker", "Ghost Train", "Rockrage", "Family Funhouse", "Apple Coaster".
Update: Walked past the fair last night and it looks like they have some good thrill rides. Am definitely going to head in at some point!

Maybe see you there!

Update: This similar poster highlights more rides at a different incarnation of the Fun Park, but there are no guarantees that any or all of them will be at the Crystal Palace version
