There will be water rides, a fun fair and miniature railway at Exmouth seafront this summer. 

The three event providers are thrilled to be setting up shop at the Queen’s Drive Space for residents and visitors alike to enjoy for the next six months, between May and October. 

Bubble of Fun will be bringing two water-based rides; water walking balls that allow riders to walk, run and crawl on water in a transparent bubble ball and bumper boats allowing children to independently sail in the safety of an inflatable pool.   

As previously reported in the Journal, Exmouth Miniature Railway will also be bringing their 10 ¼ gauge diesel train named Exmouth Express along with their giant railway track to the space.
