Ah, the Dizzy Dragons... Brings me back memories of when I was really little at my local fair. I always got put into a dragon with a bunch of "big kids" who kept spinning it so hard that I have actually thrown up afterwards.


I've never seen a Ring of Fire train upclose before. Can you try to take an upclose picture of the inside and outside of the train?

You haven't lived your life until you ride Orbiter! My experience was crazy. Holding on for dear life!


I've ridden both a carnie version & BGE's with pretty much the same experience of nearly losing my lunch.Looks like the same company that did the carnival just up the road from me a week or two ago as they bought along the same flats....then again the ROF we had was blue,not black.

I just got back from the fair and it was very fun. It is always nice to have rides so close to my house!

The Orbiter, or only the most insane ride ever created in the history of anything!

The Ring of Fire, I took a pass on this today.

The Gravitron was closed when I got there, but it opened later. Not as good as it usually is.


Me on the ride.

I spun around so fast, and I was the only person riding!

Nearing the end of the almost five minute cycle.
