What rides will there be: Eight thrill rides have been announced so far, including the 40m Starflyer - the one outside ride.

Other highlights include Viva Mexico, Superstar, Speed Buzz and the classic Waltzer.

There are also kids rides - such as the mini planes and cups and saucers - and family rides, including the carousel and dodgems.

What else will be there: There will be dozens of stalls, from amusement cranes and bungee trampolines, to traditional games like Whac-a-Minion and Skittles.

For those with younger kids, an inflatable play area is not to be missed. It will include eight attractions and each kid will have up to 40 minutes to play inside.

When and where is the carnival being held: The carnival will be held at the SEC from December 22, 2021 to January 16, 2022.

What food will be available: While the full list of vendors has not been announced yet, visitors can expect everything you’d hope for at a fun fair - candy floss, hot dogs, burgers, chips etc.

How much are tickets: General admission is £16, with Young Scot/Kidz Card holders able to get in for £13.

Over 60s can get in for £10, and children aged three and under can get a ticket for free - although this does not include vouchers for rides.
