This is one of those fairs that I always seem to forget about until one of my friends, who lives maybe two block away, tips me off about it; he in turn usually forgets about it until the air by his place is permeated with the scent of sausage. Him, another guy and I decided to head over on Saturday night, but not before we had a couple of brewskis (how else were we going to stand the masses of annoying teens?) Upon arriving I was surprised to see some new rides this year with Majestic Midways running the midway; the fair had:
- Sky Diver
- Ring of Fire
- Cuckoo Haus
- Monkey Mayhem
- A bunch of kiddie rides
- A vast selection of foodstuffs
- Carnival games
This carnival was automatically awesome for the fact that it had a Sky Diver; I haven’t seen one of those rides in literally ten years. It looked pretty good too with LED lighting as opposed to the old school florescent lighting. Wipeout was another ride I hadn’t seen in a while…at least a traveling model. It too looked very nice with multicolored turbo lighting and these single light strobes under the wheel that gave off a sparkling-like appearance. Ring of Fire was also nice to see after encountering a plethora of newer Larson Fireball’s this season; the ride also had LEDs, that’s new. Cuckoo Haus was another neat addition; not only is it a decent fun house, but its artwork perpetuates nearly every (pic) German stereotype (pic) there is. It even has Kaiser Wilhelm II holding a beer and frankfurter (pic), how about that!
We basically did a once over of the fair and left for a nearby bar. I then came back the next day for a bit just to get some more photos and video.
And here’s two videos of Sky Diver and Wipeout!
Im related to Kaiser wilhelm… and im latino. Makes no sense but its true
