I remember the 2003 layout very well, I was 14 at the time and stumbled across this site from a yahoo search and couldn't believe how many rides travelled the country or how many fairs there were.

 

Kids these days have got it easy with FB, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube but for me the magic was turning up to a pull on not knowing what was going to turn up , chatting to fellow enthusiasts and enjoying the fair. I met alot of friends for life on this forum so for that I'm grateful.

Its possibly the first site i ever came across back in the day when you had a dial up modem and pictures took ages to download and upload.

Well done everyone involved.

Must admit until i read this post, i didn't realise ATFOTF had been up and running for 25 years, that is a fantastic achievement. I have been a member since 2004 (i had to check my profile to find that out) and thanks to everyone who works to keep this site going. Whilst my interest is primarily Circus i do read the Fun Fair pages too and find them very interesting. 

Here's to the next 25 years. 

Well done Bill and everyone who contributes to the site.

Just fantastic stuff Bill and the team, just a massive amount of time, hard work, sweat, tears and generated by you all for what has to be the best fairground resource online globally. I check worldwide sites from time to time and there is nothing even close to this for its depth, width, relevance and daily updates. The fact that it's the same age as my son is the icing on the cake.

 

Well done all, and thanks SO much again Bill for your dogged persistence in keeping it going when money, servers and software fought against you.

Great news Bill who would have thought it, I was an early member when I was researching my Promotion lecture!! I was promoted in 97 so I have been here from more or less the start.

 

Still a member to this day and still enjoy the content!! Long may it last!!
