And once again, scores of people are expected to ride the Star Flyer while it is based in Sheffield.

The ride has seats for 24 people, with trips lasting around four minutes.

Riders must be above 1.2m in height and at least six years old and children under 1.4m tall and age eight must be accompanied by an adult.

Further details on opening and operating times and prices are set to be released.
