The 1930s fairground at the Black Country Museum in Dudley UK represents a travelling fairground that would have brought entertainment to people in the early 1900s. Such fairs set up on waste ground and for a few days provided thrills, entertainment and a change for those who might never go on holiday.
The collection of historic rides includes a helter skelter and the ‘Super Speedway’, the latest thing in high-speed rides when introduced in the 1920s. It was updated over the years but not converted into a waltzer as many were.
“The Speedway, consists of a set of platforms, being driven round an undulating track (going up & down, round & round). Fixed to the platforms are Motorbikes which the riders sit on for ‘the thrill of a lifetime’
