This December the Yagan Square Fun Fair is taking over the heart of Perth City with carnival rides, prize-winning sideshow games, fun fair foods and entertainment for the whole family… it might be hard to tell the kids from the adults 😉
The Yagan Square Fun Fair runs from 18 – 31 December (excluding Christmas Day), there are no session times and entry is free. Located on the corner of Roe & William Streets.
Ride tokens can be pre-purchased online at a discounted rate or from the ticket box (both cash & eftpos available, there is also an ATM located near the entrance). We spent 3 hours at the Yagan Square Fun Fair, purchasing unlimited all day ride wristbands which can be used for all of the carnival rides, wristbands are $39.00 online or $45 at the ticket box and we definitely got our monies worth, going on all the rides, some of them 2 or 3 times!
Carnival rides include;
Dream Swinger *2 token ride
An iconic wave swinger style ride that gives your 360 views and the ultimate thrills!
X-Coaster *2 token ride
Perth’s NEWEST rollercoaster seats riders in free moving carriages which rotate 360 degrees as the ride climbs and falls through tight twisting turns and sudden drops.
Dodgem Cars *2 token ride
With 18 cars out on the big track, you can dodge, weave and bump on the raceway. Definitely a fair favourite for my 9 year old.
Take a super duper whirl on this fast spinning sensation of a ride.
Cute little bopping cars with steering wheels and sound effects.
Mini Twister Helicopters
Take a spin around the Yagan Square Fun Fair in these adorable little helicopters that will ignite any imagination.
Mini Ferris Wheel
A smaller version of the traditional ferris wheel with bright colours and mushroom-shaped hats.
Bounce, climb and slide in this Jurassic themed bouncy castle.
An exciting balloon adventure that spins and oscillates making it a fast-paced favourite for young-thrill seekers.
You’ll feel the fun of the waves without getting your feet wet as the tug boat rocks and whirls!
Runaway Train Roller Coaster
All Aboard! With two deep dips and fast turns, riders are left smiling for hours. Be prepared, as looks are deceiving on this ride.
Cup & Saucer
Perfect for any age, riders hop into their own “saucer” which is individually spun by the operator as the platform rotates.
An iconic fun fair game where even the unlucky ones still walk away with a prize.
The Fishing Pool
Players receive a rod and try to catch 4 fish. They take the fish to the market, the attendant adds up the score and presto! A prize every time!
Rabbit Shooting Gallery
Take a shot to win! The more rabbits you shoot down, the larger the prize you get to take home.
Have a go on the Lucky Numbers, the easiest game to win at the Fun Fair. Pick a bingo-style card, open the windows to match a number on the prize board to WIN!
Yagan Square Fun Fair has a range of food and beverages available including hot and cold snacks. There is also fairy floss, popcorn and snow cone stands at the event.
