The amusement parks
and funfairs of the South East coast.
This video features Dreamland at
Margate, when it was known as 'Bembom Brothers White Knuckle Theme
Park'. See rides like the Water Chute, Looping Star, Heatwave, Mary
Rose and Britain's largest Big Wheel at the nearest and biggest
seaside amusement park to London.
Visit Folkestone's Rotunda
Amusement Park at the height of its popularity, with rides like the
Super 8 Bahn roller coaster (now the Cannonball Express at
Pleasurewood Hills), Gallopers and Log Flume.
Also featured is:
- Irvin Leisure's August Fair at
- Wm. Davis's fair at Hastings;
- Harris Brothers Vintage Fair
at Horsted Keynes.
No commentary, just the sights and
sounds of the best amusement parks and fairs in the South East.
I recently purchased South East
Tour 1993 on DVD. I like the fact that there is no commentary.
I thought the idea of watching the whole duration time of
some rides was absolutely brilliant. The section that I paid
special interest in was Dreamland in Margate. This was the whole
reason why I purchased this DVD. I am building a 1/76th scale OO-gauge
model railway layout and Dreamland will be part of my layout. I
chose to model the park mainly on the Bembom Brothers' era,
which I can remember in 1992 at the age of 4. So therefore me
having this DVD and Bembom Brothers at Margate is really good.
The only down side to the DVD is at the beginning, on the main
menu, is that there is no scene selection icon. Apart from this, the
whole DVD was fantastic. I personally give 9 out of 10 maybe 10
out of 10.
