Some new rides will make their way to the fair this year including KMG Extreme and Snow Jet, as well as some old favourites such as Waltzers and the Sky Swing. One of the most exciting additions this year is the Star Flyer which is one of the tallest rides in the country, measuring in at 55m high – the tallest ride to ever come to Hull Fair.
