With Hull fair coming up soon, does anybody know what rides are going this year?
It opens on the 11th, and i've heard that it doesn't overlap Nottingham goose fair this year.
So does that mean we can expect to see the good rides at both fairs?

Usually most big rides will do both fairs when they don't clash. This year Hull will clash with Ilkeston which may have an effect.

Mellors Starflyer is known to be doing both Nottingham and Hull before London Winter Wonderland this year.

Expect Hull to be Battle of the Starflyers this year with David Taylor, Micheal Wallis and Freddie Stokes all having grounds and may all decide to present their versions in Hull

Voodoo Dancer Breakdance has applied for both fairs and is waiting to hear back. Mellors Mouse will usually do Ilkeston after Nottingham so one would expect M&D's to be the sole big caster there with Toboggan.

No word on Sky Swing yet (I personally hope it goes to Nottingham) or other rides but many will only just be getting their comfirmations in the next couple of weeks or so.

I'm sure news will filter out in due course.

Top buzz - likely to go after Nottingham to Hull - not been for a few years
Frisbee - tends to go back to Lancashire after Nottingham
Kmg style chaos etc.- Harris's Technical Park version will do either Hull or Ilkeston, Jay Barwicks Freakout is a regular at Hull so that will be there, could possibly get at least one of the new Funlight Freakouts there
Rock rage - not been for a good number of years - usually favouring Ilkeston or somewhere else over Hull as it did not do as well as expected.
Atmosfear - didn't do as well as expected. Most likely to return but I guess Ilkeston might be a 2nd option instead.
Super spin - Sedgwicks Superspin seems to go more often than not to Hull, Evans Reflex has never been to Hull

Top Buzz might not be doing anything this October it's in the south of France atm!

Really Hull should destroy Goose yet again, there's no clashes this year so big hitters should go both.

Hull has not had a bigger coaster in years. I think the last one was Darren Matthews Mouse which stopped going after a couple of years.

M&D's took Tsunami only once.

Hull has had lots of different coasters over the years including Danters Wild Mouse, Darren Matthews Crazy Mouse, James Mellors Magic Mouse (And once under C&G Attractions before that), M&D's Pinfari Looping Star, M&D's Jamming, Mack Wilde Maus, Maurer Sohn Magic Spinning Coaster and SDC Windstorm are the ones I can remember in my visits their over the years.

This was at a time when Nottingham didn't have the extra space for a coaster - that didn't happen until 1994 with Jan De Konning presenting Rhyls Pepsi Cola loop along with Shearans Log Flume.

Nottinghams coaster past is not as good as Hulls along with the above mentioned Pepsi Cola Loop other coasters are a German Mack Wilde Maus, C&G's Magic Mouse (later brought by Mellors), Axels Crazy Mouse, Danters Wild Mouse, M&D's Jamming, M&D's Tsunami, James Mellors Mine Train

Popped over last night.

Have to say, there are new rides... all doing the same things!! :|
Aside from the usual several miami's, dodgers & waltzers, there are numerous twists!! - Lifting twist, tilting twist, extreme, and a couple of standard twists.
There's 3 sets of gallopers...
2 Superbowls
2 Starflyers, although 1 of them IS Mellors (or will be when the wind drops & Sunday comes when they can try to complete the ride!).
M&Ds have brought their Mouse, wheel & flume... again!
Xtreme - swinging & spinning
Freak Out - swinging & spinning
AtmosFear - swinging & spinning AND rocking!
Dominator - swinging & spinning AND rocking!
AIr - swinging & spinning AND rocking!
etc...
Anyway:
:snigger

Image

Image

Hull Fair...Chavvy... naaah! :snigger
Image

Cyclone
Image

Lifting twits since 2013!
Image

As per usual, best atmosphere around Atha's Hell Blazer.
Image

With MC. Which would have been a nice touch if it weren't for the repeats of "we're lovin' it lovin' it lovin' it, we're lovin' it like thaat"!
:hilarious
Image

Over the Top with its new paint job & LED lighting, it looks good apart from not matching the backflash!
Image

Ready for Winter Wonderland with snowy paint scheme!
Image

Image

Image

Forgot to mention above - 2 bloody rotors too!
Image

Image

Gypsy Fortune telling, or a load of old rubbish?!
Image

Dusty Donuts... and I don't mean sugar!

I popped over tonight as well lol!

Was shocked to see how rammed it was to say the weather was pretty crappy most of the night!

Good to see Bomber Mark 2 out again forgot just how quick it was, even Air gave a good ride for a change lol

Gotta say though it's one of the worse line ups Hulls had in recent years wayyyyyyyyyy too many duplicates! Shame to see some quite big spots with just a little juvenile in the middle.

Nice TR Col. I did Goose last weekend and meant to put my TR up too. What is a Dominator though, since you've mentioned one?
