It’s the UK’s largest Valentines Event, and back in Leeds for the Half Term holidays will be the famous Valentines Fun Fair opening Friday 9th February until Saturday 17th of February on the Elland Road Car Parks alongside Leeds United Football Club.
Each year the event seems to bring together bigger and better rides from across Europe and whether you’re looking for a family-friendly day of rides and amusements or a thrilling night out, there is always plenty to enjoy at what was Europe’s first and is still the largest Valentine fair, which having initially been held in the City Centre from 1992 until 2000 is still going strong at its current home on the car parks at Elland Road adjoining Leeds United FC!
Amongst the array of Roller Coasters, thrill rides, family rides, Dodgems, Twists and Waltzer’s which have always been the staple diet of the Valentines Fair, there will be a fantastic new attractions this year plus returning will be a 33 metre observation wheel. Direct from a theme park will be the Crazy Mouse Roller Coaster which spins its cars along its winding and twisting track, one of three coasters which includes a the Big Apple Coaster and Go Gator. These rides amongst the 100 attractions on offer will give thrill seekers and families an amazing experience.
Also there were plenty of rides for those who enjoy more traditional fairground rides, including the ever-popular Carousel, Ghost Train and four Fun Houses.
The fair also offers visitors the chance to enjoy many other attractions, such as giant prize games, food and novelty stalls and the numerous side shows that are on offer.
