The Saint-Michel funfair presents its new activities. Between sensational rides and strange walking robots, the choice is wide.
On Saturday, the Saint-Michel funfair (until October 17) was in full swing in the Zénith parking lot. In Five rather impressive robots were shaking hands, generating selfies, advancing a little awkwardly on their articulated legs. “These robots, called Transformers, from the name of the famous cartoon of the 80s with worldwide success, are this year, the flagship attraction of the party, assures Armand Baca, of the organizing committee. The public adores them, including the kids delighted to touch them, to hug each other. Even if some hesitate a bit ”. This free attraction, located in Lille, is a sure way for the Saint-Michel festival to fill up with visitors throughout the day: “Each year, the municipalities validate new attractions which must be installed in the three zones. blue, left vacant to accommodate them, pursuit of Armand Baca. This year, the robots were unanimous with a few thrill rides, always very popular with the public. Obviously controlled and secure ”.
Like the Rock It, a merry-go-round with two black and yellow arms, fitted with nacelles for 360 ° rotation. Upstairs, the reckless shout, driven by the adrenaline rush: “It’s really good, admit Shine and Ambre, two 12-year-old girlfriends, with shining eyes. Obviously, we were a little afraid but that’s why we wanted to do it ”.
“When we come back down we are a bit stunned. But what happiness! “
Another “shock” merry-go-round, the ejection ball equipped with two seats with elastic which tends to throw the visitor 55 meters high! There too, the enthusiasm is at the rendezvous: “When we go back down, we are a little stunned but what happiness, testifies Hugo, 24 years old. An intense memory of having been afraid with a bunch of friends ”. For those who prefer the floor of the cows, more peaceful attractions are present. Like the Couic Couic stand, where the visitor has to cut with scissors a rope holding prizes, sometimes interesting such as this drone, won by Xavier: “Not bad for having played only a game at 4 €!” “
