What the title says. It has some of my favorite rides such as The 2000, Fireball, And the swing thing that I forgot the name of.

Is the Fireball that thing that goes in a circle upside down? There's an annual fair in my town too, and every year, we have the same rides. I don't ride them anymore because they're for kids, but when I DID ride them, my favorites were the Zipper, Rock-o-Plane, Gravatron and Double Ferris Wheel.

Ew, you liked the zipper? I've never seen/rode it, but from what I've heard it sounds pretty scary/dangerous.

I always loved the chairlifts at my state fair.

Yeah, the Fireball is the one that goes in circles upsidedown. Oh, and I pulled some awesome stunts on the 2000. Handstands on the rails, Standing on the walls, lot's of fun stuff. And Xaliaphous, the zipper is fun. How can you say if you've never rode it?

WTF! The 2000! Is that the thing that looks like a UFO, and goes round and round and round?

OMG! The Gravitron AKA the Pukeitron! I used to love that ride.

The Fireball.. I think they call it the Ring of Fire here.

When I go to the fair I just hang out. The rides end up costing more than a trip to Six Flags. And they're not as fun, either.

I have a fair experience. Okay so this was last year there was this ride called "Shocker" and there are these three...umm...things with seats on them, and it goes high in the air and spins and the things spin to so you go upside down. IMO it was the best ride ever! (It wasn't here this year. There was a ride called "The Extreme" this year. That one's pretty good to) So I got on it and then some dude sits next to me. Before he got on I saw him hand cheese curds to some girl next to him. So then the ride starts up and after about three times upside down I bet you can guess what happens. Yup you guessed it he hurls. I won't go into detail but it was pretty sick, the first time I actually saw someone upchuck.

Ew, ew, ew. What an idiot.
The only fair that comes around here is sh*tty - there's never any upside down rides, just The Teacups ride; Bumper Cars and a flying one that goes round and round. I don't go to the fair/s anymore because I'm 18, so now more than ever I prefer actual roller coasters in theme parks, but whenever I pass them they just look the same as years ago. I hate rides that spin anyway.

I used to love the Ring of Fire & the Gravatron. Now I just like to eat all the food that is absolutely horrible for you. It only comes once a year though so why not indulge.
