Ark list

This list gives known details of all known Noah's Ark rides used in the UK - it includes all known rides that were built as Noah's Arks and a selection of rides that were converted into Noah's Arks. It does not include conversions from other platform machines (Waltzers, Autodromes) since these are listed separately in their own lists. Any corrections can be emailed to the NFA via the link at the foot of the page.

Disclaimer - the National Fairground Archive does not take responsibility for the accuracy of the information included in these machine lists. Historical information is based upon existing research alongside our own research utilising written and photographic resources. Current information regarding ownership changes, scrapping of rides, etc is based upon information sent to us and checked where possible.

It is not our intention to mislead or misrepresent regarding the chains of ownership of these fairground machines. We include this research on our website as a service to interested parties. If you feel any aspects of these lists are incorrect then please do not hesitate to contact us where we will endeavour to check facts and make amendments where required.
