The lost Edinburgh 'thrill park' that would leave modern parents horrified

They were the ramshackle adventure playgrounds that were the 'Alton Towers' for a whole generation of youngsters growing up in the post-war urban development that was Wester Hailes in the 1970s.


With the recent opening of Wester Hailes' much-anticipated AirThrill inflatables adventure park, we look back to a time when the area was home to makeshift 'thrill' attractions that would leave modern parents horrified.

In the 1970s and 1980s, a series of outdoor adventure playgrounds, or 'Venchies' as they were affectionately known, sprang up all around Wester Hailes.
