James Rogers, who also operates Pirate Adventureland crazy golf and the Sky View observation wheel on the Beach Lawns, told the Mercury Funland will return for a 50-day stint over the summer holidays to bolster the town’s tourism offering.

The pop-up amusement park was first held in Weston’s Tropicana last year and featured a range of stalls, rides and a rollercoaster.

Funland will open to thrill-seekers on July 15 and will run until September 3.
