By far the most popular of all the rides here at the Heritage Centre, the Dodgems were the first ride built up at the museum in 2006.
They have not always been as they appear today. When they were new they had a standard 60 feet by 40 feet square-ended track. Like the Chariot Racer, they were built by Orton, Sons and Spooner, and first appeared in Edwards’ ownership in 1932. Over the years the Dodgems were rebuilt and have evolved as one of the biggest sets ever to travel, the track being 96 feet in length.
