I enjoy the fair every year but STAY AWAY from the rides. Not only are the individual ride tickets way overpriced but the rides themselves are VERY shady and downright dangerous. Not to mention most of the ride operators look like they're probably on the Megans List. It's a good time if you avoid the rides.

Fyi... according to the fairs schedule that's posted on their website the $20 ride specials are only for Tuesday 6-11 Wednesday 6-11 and Sunday 12-5. The $40 unlimited is daily during all hours....
