Boomtown Fair 2013: photos and featuresA mindbending visit to the Prawnucopia Lounge
Matterley Estate, nr. Winchester, Hampshire, UK [map], 9th-11th Aug 2013
This year's Boomtown festival introduced a novel new feature, in the shape of a slow moving travelator that shimmied tired festival-goers up the hill from Downtown to Uptown.
Called the 'Magic Carpet' ride, the trip leisurely traversed the greater part of the steep hill linking the two main parts of Boomtown, with each trip costing a pound.
On the lively thread discussing Boomtown 2013 on urban75 there seems to be some disagreement about the ride, with the poster Sim667 being rather enthusiastic about the idea:
The magic carpet was a godsend for me, getting up that bastard hill with a broken toe was annoying. I only did it once though and used the magic carpet 6 other times.
However, Ted Striker had a very different opinion:
It was a whopping comedy fail
What did you think of the Magic Carpet?
