Bugs & Bees is a travelling steel kiddie roller coaster built by Turkish manufacturer DAL Amusement Rides currently owned & travelled by UK showman John Woodward.

History

This roller coaster was formerly painted yellow with green supports. In 2012 or 2013, it was repainted blue with red supports and renamed "Speedy". Shortly after the train was also repainted red. It operated in 2014 and 2015 at the Hoppings. In May 2015 it operated in Aberdeen, Scotland.

At Christmas time, the ride has been re-branded as "Santa's Sleigh Ride". It operated at the Chester Winter Wonderland in 2014.

In 2015 or 2016, the roller coaster was renamed "Bugs & Bees" and repainted. The train appears to have been replaced at this point.
