Waltzers at Butlins

Postby aweber2us » 19 Nov 2012, 20:17

There is a new Waltzer operating at Butlins Skegness and another going into Butlins Bognor. Does anyone have any idea of the history, past keepers of these Waltzers?

Many thanks for the reply, Its strange that Butlins scrapped W44 saying it was to old for them to maintain . They now have W49 a slightly newer sister machine to the one they had. The Waltzer at Butlins Bognor is going to be in place for February half term no machine on site last weekend.

Yes thats right i can remember taking my Mum on it and making her feel sick. But my all time favorite at Filey was the Tempest, not everyones cup of tea though. Over the years i have been to most of the Butlins camp but Filey was always the best in my eyes.
