With no need to indicate or change gear, in a dodgem you can just let yourself go! 

Dodgems are one of the few rides where we're in control, and where the law has no jurisdiction … and that’s what we love about them!
But did you know that the dodgems have been with us for over 80 years? Where did they come from? Who made them? What makes them stop ... and what makes them go?


We’ve all bumped and laughed our way around the dodgem track, but what about the untold story of this fairground classic? Revealing the full history of the dodgems, this book details this iconic ride.

With details of manufacture from the very men who built them, and lavishly illustrated with period photographs and drawings from the dodgem's origins right up to the present day, this book tells the behind-the-scenes and the behind-the-laughter story. 

Revealing the originators and the pioneers, it also exposes the drama, hard work, and heartache behind one of the world’s favourite fairground rides.

So hold tight as we take you for a trip down memory lane! 

Additional Information

Covers the period 1890 to the present day.
