Irn Bru carnival is on now

It’s that time of year again… the ultimate adrenaline junkies’ playground, the IRN-BRU Carnival, is on at the SECC, Glasgow, until January 11.

Now in its 94th year the Carnival is Europe’s largest indoor funfair with over 60 rides and attractions, and with new and exciting additions this year it’s set to be bigger and better than ever before.

Making a debut this year is the ‘Crazy Mouse’, a thrilling roller-coaster that will send the daredevils in the family on a speed frenzy journey.

Also new for 2014 is the ‘Dreams Live’ and ‘TopFlip’ which will take riders on an up-side-down spin.

Visitors can reach new heights (50 feet to be exact) on the returning ‘Extreme XL’ as the IRN-BRU Carnival ventures outside the SECC and onto the banks of the River Clyde.

For kids both big and small, the firm favourites are back again.

There’s fun for all the family on the Teacups, Dodgems and Carousel while older families will enjoy the Drop Zone and Speed Buzz.

This year there will also be theme days, giving kids and grown-ups alike the chance to dress up as their favourite childhood characters including pirates, princesses, superheroes, villains and many more.

Entry price is £13 with visitors receiving ten vouchers which can be used on all rides and most stalls (each ride is one voucher and stalls are two vouchers).

The Carnival is closed on Christmas Day and some stalls are cash taking.

Four Times & Speaker readers can each win a set of family tickets, allowing entry for five people, to the Carnival.

For your chance to win answer the following question and send your entry, including your name, address and telephone number, to Kettle Contest at Motherwell Times Series, 29 Hope Street, Motherwell, ML1 1BT, to reach us by Wednesday,December 31.
