ALL the fun of the fair is coming back to Burnley.

Following the success of last year’s Burnley Summer Sizzler Theme Park, a new spring fair is set to brighten up the town.

Opening tomorrow, the Burnley Bonanza Theme Park can be found in Hargher Street, just off Accrington Road, and it will be running until Sunday, April 1st.

There will be a mass of white knuckle and family rides for thrill-seekers including Energy Storm and the Tagada as well as all the favourites such as waltzers, dodgems and the Drop Zone.

Other new attractions will include the thrilling Superstar and a crazy fun house.

Unlimited riding wristbands are available at £4.99 allowing visitors to stay and carry on riding for free for up to four hours.

Admission is by wristband only and the park will be open between 1 - 5 p.m. and 5 - 9 p.m. on weekends and through the week from 5 - 9 p.m..

A wide variety of refreshments will also be available, as well as an arcade, various games, bungee trampolines, hoopla stalls and side stalls.

Mr Alan Cowie, one of the organisers of the event, says: “We are providing an excellent value for money day out and following the success of the Burnley Summer Sizzler we were looking forward to coming back before Easter. We fully understand that money is tight, at the moment, so we have kept the one price admission at an amazing low price.

“Buying the wristbands means that parents can bring their children along and know what they are going to spend. There is nothing worse than having to tell a child he or she can not go a certain ride, as there is no money left. With the wristbands, they can ride as many times as they like.

“We can guarantee our guests a safe day out locally at a first class visitor attraction. To sample some of our rides you would have to travel to an amusement or theme park.

“We are bringing the entertainment back to Burnley and we hope that people will come out and see what a fantastic array of equipment we have brought for their enjoyment.”
