I went on some "no rules" bumper cars (aka. Dodgems) when I was in the UK a year ago. They were at a travelling fair in Wandsworth Commons (London). The operator would stand up, drive backwards, and just act dangerously. The ironic thing was he growled at me for going backwards myself (it's fun though, but he should practice what he preaches).

The travelling fair itself was kind of "ghetto". They had a strange truck mounted rocket motion simulator that just went up and down, rotated a little bit and played a poor quality weird movie. They had ride operators who were more interested in their cigarettes than collecting money from paying customers. In addition, they had "Magic Kingdom" displays, aka "Disney Lawsuit".

Also, when I went to the UK in 1999, Thorpe Park was really run down (every ride broke down when we were there), maybe it's gotten better. Are you guys going there?

Always nice to see good comment on parks in your neighbourhood :D

Too bad I'm in the middle of my exams, I would have tagged along otherwise, since I read site banned a lot.

Hope you like Bobbejaanland too, I visit it multiple times each year.

PS: be sure to have some Belgian beers, makes Budweiser taste like sewerwater :lol:

I know more about donkeys than women!

"no rules" bumper cars? I didn't even know there were bumper cars with rules. Being able to drive head on into other people is exactly the piont. :twisted:

Thanks for the pics and I hope you guys like Bobbejaanland too.

Did my donkey title just change???
