Pop-up amusement park Funland @ The Tropicana has returned to Weston this week, with a range of rides set to delight thrill-seekers for the summer holidays.

Funland is housed at the Tropicana, in Marine Parade, until September 3 and will open from 10am-8pm, with potential for later openings depending on demand.

A range of rides feature at Funland, with the new 40m-high Storm ride and a classic log flume certain to get pulses racing.

Event organiser James Rogers told the Times: “This summer for the first time we have a giant log flume along with the Wild Mouse rollercoaster, plus all the firm favourites like dodgems and waltzers. The log flume is going to go down really well in the nice weather.

“The best ride for thrill-seekers is going to be the high-speed Storm ride, which generates between three and four Gs as people come downwards.

“It’s definitely going to be the best Funland event so far.”
