The fair (known as Ocean Beach Pleasure Park) began to take a permanent format in 1899. It was at this time when the travelling fairground rides that came to the town during the summer months were legally allowed to offer rides at any time. Previously they would have waited until the morning market stalls closed for the day. The first permanent rides were built in the 1920s. One of the first being the Aerial Flight.
The Helter Skelter is another long-standing ride which was joined by traditional stalls to create the fair in the early twentieth century. In more recent times electric powered rides have replaced the traditional mechanical rides. Attractions were installed which we are familiar with today, such as the Waltzer, the Twister, and the Rollercoaster.
