It’s day two of the Sydney Royal Easter Show, and no doubt, you’re wondering ‘what is the best rides I could choose?’ We’ve already spoken about the most thrilling rides at the show. Yet, what if you have a few young kids and want to know which rides they will enjoy the most? Well look no further! Here are the six best Kids Carnival rides at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
1) The Wave Swinger
Always a show classic, the Wave Swinger is loved by all ages, but especially the young ones. Get ready as you soar at a pleasant speed, 15 metres above the ground. The Wave Swinger is a smooth, enjoyable ride that also provides great views of the Showgrounds.
2) Samba Balloons
You don’t see the Samba balloons at every fete or carnival, yet they’re still one of the most interesting rides at the show. An aesthetic carousel on which the whole family can ride, you control the speed to decide how fast or slow you go. Plus, you feel like you’re in a hot air balloon. Awesome!
The Carousel is another show classic that cannot be overlooked. Everyone loves to ride on the beautifully painted horses. The Sydney Royal Easter Show doubles the fun of this tradition with a double decker carousel! How could a Carousel get any better?
4) Cars 4 Kids
Us at Show Radio can never go past the bumper cars, so how could we not recommend this as a must-do? These dodgem cars are half-sized, perfectly suited for young rev-heads to have a great race and bump with their friends and family.
5) Super Slide
The Super Slide is another fete staple that every kid loves. Float to the top of the mega slide in an incredible moving walkway, take your magic carpet, and speed down one of eight rainbow coloured lanes. Race your friends and family, or just enjoy the ride, complete with an awesome disco light show to really make this slide super.
6) Kite Flyer
Another unique ride is the kite flyer. No, you’re not given a kite to fly. In this ride, YOU are the kite! Lie flat on your own two-person gondola and soar, simulating the experience of flying like a superhero.
Do you love spinning around until everything becomes blurry? Flying through the air at high speed? Then the Coca-Cola Carnival at the Sydney Royal Easter Show is the place for you!
