Professor Pumpernickel

Potty Professor Pumpernickel will once again be conducting his own brand of scientific experiments mixed with terrible jokes.
Expect whizz bangs and whatsits as this crowd favorite from 2016 returns.
Bringing his madcap mayhem and non-stop frenzy of laboratory lunacy.
Along with his ridiculous German accent and a ‘doctorate’ written in crayons,
The professor aims to entertain and perhaps inspire the next generation of scientists, inventors and superheroes.

Swingboats and Trampolines

A nod to the traditional fairground entertainment, before we had rollercoasters launching us into orbit.
An ever popular addition.

Zorbs

Water-Zorbing is loads of fun and suitable for kids, teenagers and brave adults.
Roll around or relax with the cool water beneath you on a warm day, or attempt to stand and run about.
Standing is fairly easy for the little ones but harder for grown ups.
In fact we challenge any adult to remain upright for 20 seconds, and if you manage it you can have your money back.
