After seeing on Facebook that the £1 fair was back at Northampton racecourse we thought it would rude not to head over and have a few rides. We went over the Bank holiday weekend which ended up being surprisingly warm and sunny (very unusual for a UK Bank Holiday weekend).
We generally don't do fairs that much anymore. Robert and I can't always handle the pace as we get older but Rebecca seems to love spinning rides. We did quite a few rides. Spent around £35 which isn't too bad considering most fairs are £3 per person.
What I like about this Scarrott's fair is the good mix of rides available. There are lots of kids rides and inflatables, a decent number of family/thrill rides all for £1 each.
I got to have a go on the Vortex which wasn't available the last time we visited this fair (back in May). Its similar to Maelstrom at Drayton Manor but a fair bit smaller. Its a good ride, not as smooth starting up as the theme park versions but a decent ride. Only issue I had was that the restraints really pin you legs down so when you get the pops of airtime it is a little bit uncomfortable.
Overall, its a decent fair and well worth a visit for a couple of hours. It will be at the Northampton Racecourse until Sunday September 3rd 2017 and free parking is available next to the fair.
Our video will be on our youtube channel tonight at 1900
Due to some of the things we want to film we have decided to create a separate youtube channel for all non-theme/adventure park stuff. Lots of people commented and said they prefer to watch the theme park stuff on its own channel so thats what we decided to do.
Please make sure you check out both channels and that you subscribe. We have a range of social media you can follow us on, all listed below:

We recently visited Gulliver's Warrington. It is a nice park but feel like something is missing. It doesn't seem as loved as the Milton Keynes park.
Our vlog is now on our youtube channel
We are going to be heading to Gulliver Milton Keynes soon. Have never been to this park so hoping its a nice day out. Rebecca will be hopefully taking a friend with her as she really seems to enjoy these trips more with some one else her own age.
We had an amazing time at Disneyland Paris. All our vlogs are now available on our youtube channel:

Managed to get the rest of the photos from our Europa Park trip edited and added. And I also managed to get the vlog finished which is now available on our youtube channel.
Next year is going to be a very quite year for us. RJ goes to school in September so we want to spend some time with her before she heads off on this new adventure without spending too much time in theme parks. We will cover a few but no where near as many as we have over the past two years.
Our short vlog from Phantasialand is now online.
I was very poorly the Friday before we flew and then I wasn't feeling to great all day on the Saturday. Luckily I made the trip and did have a good time. I think we forget how much better these European Parks are. Actually, we are considering buying a season pass for these instead of the UK ones!
Our vlog from the ECC's Welsh Weekender trip is now available on our youtube channel.
