West Parade, Rhyl (as at January 2022)
Sold to Rhyll Council in 1989 for £400,000. Last operated in 2010. The following year, a safety report found that £400,000 worth of repairs were required to keep the ride operational. After standing but not operating for seven years, in 2017 work was carried out to turn the tower into a beacon.
Here is my drawing of the tower from my visit in primary school.
Attached photo is taken from inside the tower, through the window, of the view across the Garden Festival site looking east.
Queue for the tower. June 1988
