Get ready for an out of this world experience with a new space-themed fairground that is set to launch in Glasgow this March. Galactic Carnival will provide a four-hour unlimited ride wristband, with a variety of rides for thrill-seekers and families to enjoy.
The space-themed carnival will take place at Silverburn shopping centre, Pollok and will feature the likes of an epic rollercoaster, thrill rides for thrill seekers, a festival wheel with the best view of Glasgow, as well as rides for little ones. There will be up to 14 rides for visitors to choose from, all of which are included with the Galactic Carnival wristband.
Situated in the green car park at Silverburn, Galactic Carnival is sure to be a fun trip out for all. Rides for thrill seekers include the classic waltzers alongside the Spinning Mouse Coaster which will have your head in a spin, the terrifying drops and 180-degree spins are sure to set heart beats racing.
But for those who fancy something less fearsome, can enjoy the dodgems, teacups and Children Taxi, as well as bungee trampolines and Chair-o-plane that will have you reaching for the stars. There will also be a series of autism friendly-sessions taking place on March 31 and April 4, offering visitors with autism and sensory processing disorders the chance to enjoy the rides with less queues and crowds.
Following the success of their last event, Spooktacular, Global Events and Attractions are back to offer a great value event across Scotland’s Easter Holiday, running from March 25 to April 18. Zoe Taylor, Global Events and Attractions said: “After the success of Spooktacular last year at Silverburn, we are thrilled to continue our partnership with the centre.
“Throughout the pandemic we have seen a desire for outdoor affordable events that offer great value for money. We have created the Galactic Carnival for the people of Scotland to enjoy more rides, fun and make memories together.”
