Ocean Beach amusement park, South Shields

Dodgem cars

All lined up ready for the drivers, dodgem cars at the Ocean Beach amusement park down at the sea front in South Shields. They may see some action at the weekends if we get lucky and see a little sunshine, otherwise they will undergo routine maintenance before being put into storage for the winter.

Does your town have a permanent funfair?

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 105mm lens, 1/125 second, f5.6, iso 200

  1. We call them bumper cars…and we do have the Dollywood Theme Park nearby which we have season passes for (Dolly Parton’s theme park). The bumper cars are a family favorite!
