Last Year’s Irn-Bru Carnival
In the first video below, you can have a watch at clips that i recorded when i was at the Irn-Bru Carnival last year (2016 / 1017). Underneath that, in the second video, you can see one of the rides (the Drop Zone) from last years carnival too..
I thought The Irn-Bru Carnival last year at the Scottish Event Campus last year was great and i am expecting the same again this year. If you are looking for a fun filled day or night out with your friends and/or family, then this is a must to go to. Here is another Highlight Video of last year’s carnival by QD Events. Below is some photos i took last year also..
Travel: Remember to always take care in your journey to the carnival, wither that be traveling on foot, bike, bus taxi or train.. Leave in enough time to get there so that you are not rushing and wrap up well for the cold weather. You can Get A Free £15 Taxi Journey by simply signing up to Uber and entering code IBCARNIVAL16 (See FAQ for more details, scroll down to”Traveling by Taxi”).
Kids: We all know kids can get really excited and run about crazy at these fun fairs, i know, trust me, i know! … So keeping them safe is a priority. Before you leave to go out, you can put a band around their wrist with your Name & Mobile Number wrote on it so if the worst happens and a little one wonders off, the staff their or another visitor can contact you easily and quickly.
Don’t Loss Anything: I’ve done it before, you’ve probably done it before.. We go on a ride, the ride starts, and only then do we realize when its too late that we have our phone, money, keys and more all in our pockets and Not zipped up! Remember to keep all your pockets zipped at all times while your on and off the rides and don’t ever just leave a bag or possession laying at the side of a ride until you come back off. Ask the ride operator where you can leave it (usually allows you to leave it at the ride’s pay box / cabin or by a fence Inside the ride.
