This classic pendulum swing ride is a slower paced thrill ride and is always a family favourite, just make sure you aren't left behind to walk the plank...

Try your hand at air hockey or bust out some moves on the Dancing Stage. Perfect your aim in the adventurous shooting games and have a blast - if you'll pardon the pun! Whatever the type of game you enjoy, there's a whole host of personal favourites for everyone.
