New Rides At The State Fair
If the kids and you, have been getting bored with some of the rides at the Minnesota State Fair Midway, there is some good news for you.
New rides include the Downdraft, the Haunted Castle Dark Ride, the Rock Star, the Super Frisbee, the Twin Flip, the Combination Carousel and a new teacup ride, according to a news release from fair officials.
A ride that is a combination Carousel and teacup ride are a part of the Kidway.
According to the release Haunted Castle, Dark Ride offers a two-level journey of animated frights and fears. The ride was constructed in Italy and is the largest traveling haunted attraction in North America.
For you, super thrill seekers try the Super Frisbee. The ride is a 52-feet high, with a rotating gondola. Maybe don't try it after that third Pronto Pup though.
The fair runs from Aug. 23 through Labor Day, Sept. 3. Also new.
For animal lovers, there will be an expanded equestrian program with more draft and miniature horse competitions. Highlights of the livestock shows will include several cattle breeds — Charolais, Hereford, Holstein, red and white, and Shorthorn and shorthorn plus — as well as dairy goats and sheep.
