1. Dodgems- the tried and tested bumper cars is a popular among fairground lovers and one that attracts many people to the Mart.

2. Children's roundabout- run by chief steward Donald Gray, the ride is obviously a popular among children.

3. Waltzer- A must for people who like to go for a spin.

4. The Yeti- a ride that spins and bounces, it's one for the moderate thrill seekers.

8. Huck-a-duck- the traditional fairground stall game is still a popular among Mart visitors.

9. Hotdogs- with the smell of onions spreading across the centre of town, there's no chance of resisting the temptation of a hotdog as you pass through.

10. Candy Floss- you can't go to a fairground and not get candy floss. Mr Gray puts it best: "It's like roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, they just go together."
