Michelle Matthews organiser of the Seaside & Thrill Ride Spectacular is promising all the fun of the seaside with a new event which has set up its home on Putney Common for the holidays. Recreating everything that is good about the seaside, Londoners will not have to venture far for a taste of the coast and a family day out during the ten day spectacular from Friday 28th of May until Sunday 6th of June with the common in easy access from the centre of the Capital.

Donkey rides, sand, seaside rock, face painting, Punch & Judy, balloon modelling & children’s entertainers will all be on hand to create a special atmosphere while central to the proceedings will be a huge theme park. Hosting a fantastic selection of rides and attractions there are three full size Rollercoaster’s, one of which is the World’s biggest spinning car coaster. There are Dodgem’s, carousels, a Waltzer, Ghost Trains and Fun Houses for all ages, while the thrill seekers can sample the Mega Spin, Extreme or the Wild Thing. The youngsters can enjoy an assortment of children’s attractions, while there are seaside games galore and plenty of sticky candy floss.







Car parking is free and admission is by wristband to the security controlled enclosure and there are toilet facilities and hot food once inside. For a single price of £5.99 each kid can get a regular wristband and enjoy all the children’s attractions and Fun Houses while for £8.99 a premium wristband gives unlimited riding on the theme park for up to 4½ hours. Non-rider wristband entry is £2.50 and everyone gets a voucher for a free stick of rock!

Each day will see two opening sessions from 12 noon until 4.30pm and from 4.30pm until 9pm and wristbands are on sale up to an hour before each session.

Visitors are advised to get to the park early to maximise their time and take full advantage of the rides and attractions on offer.

Michelle Matthews commented:
” This is a new and novel idea for London which during the credit crunch will hopefully prove extremely popular with guests of all ages. I am proud to be able to bring the Seaside & Thrill Ride Spectacular to Putney and hopefully we will enjoy some wonderful support. We have assembled rides and attractions from all over Europe including a German Spinning Car Rollercoaster. At this event as well as enjoying entertainment we wanted to be able to provide a new experience where families could enter our security controlled park and enjoy unlimited free rides in a safe environment. I believe in the current economic climate this represents excellent value and with free riding on the attractions once inside the gates and we can guarantee none of our guests will leave the Theme Park disappointed.”
