On the one hand, true. On the other hand, bollocks.

Whippy Hose Ride

Fireman's Picnic Fun

The Whippy Hose Ride takes place in a large flat grassy field. Instead of the usual dodgem cars, there are very, very large tea cups, mounted on a trolly base. The rim of each saucer is the usual dodgem bumper material.

There is no electricity involved, the motive power instead coming from three large hoses, mounted at 120 degree points on the trolly. Each car can hold about twenty people, three of whom each control one of the water hoses. The cars can carry 25,000 litres of water and have three fire brigade standard water pumps.

The hoses end in brass fire nozzles and are just long enough to be a bit whippy and hard to control.

Riders not engaged in steering and ramming can arm themselves with rubber cutlasses and grappling hooks.
