All the fun of the fair: tallest ride in the country comes to Hull
Hull Fair-goers are going to have the chance to experience the tallest ride in the country this year.
The Starflyer ride, which swings riders up and around its 60 metre tower, is currently located at Jubilee Gardens on London's South Bank but will be travelling to Hull in time for the fair to open on Friday October 5.
The ride is only for those with a head for heights but will offer a bird's eye view of the city.

The fair, which runs until Saturday October 13 (excluding Sunday October 7), will also feature over 250 other rides and 113 stalls and games. There will also be around 55 children's rides, including trampolines, fun houses, helter skelters and mini versions of the teenage rides.
Children's rides open at 2pm and the whole fair opens at 5pm until 11pm.
Councillor Geraghty, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said: “Last year saw over 500,000 people enjoy the Fair and we hope it proves as popular as ever this year.
“Having the tallest ride in the country come to Hull shows the calibre of the fair and the high regard in which is is held. Having new thrilling rides such as Starflyer, along with the vibrant atmosphere and fairground traditions, the fair will continue to attract people from far and wide."
We will have further Hull Fair stories and updates in the run up to the opening night.
