Here's a quick little trip report from the first day of our trip at La Feria.
I'm gonna be honest here, La Feria's operations leaves a lot to be desired. They run one train on their mobius loop wooden roller coaster, and not one train per side, *ONE* train! Most of the rest of the park the operations aren't much better. Food service is not great either as I ended up waiting 50 minutes for an order of french fries that they accidentally gave to someone else, but still made re-pay for them again or they wouldn't give me the fries! Don't even get me started on the insane height restrictions the park has on lots of rides.
Honestly the park is like the Fuji-Q of Mexico. If it wasn't for the fact that they do have a few unique, classic and fun rides, I'm not sure I'd return back to this park.
The staff are friendly, the park is actually pretty clean, but the operations really are just not great.
Here's some photos...
Here we are! First park of our trip!
The haunted house is actually really decent!
Filled with lots of live actors.
This is the kind of welcome sign I need at our house!
I think this describes the park perfectly! ;)
Here is the woodie running ONE train! And yes, the queue is completely full, they don't even let people down to the station gates until the train comes in and everyone exists.
But the ride does deliver some serious-ass airtime! OMG!
The old Kennywood shuttle loop is really the star of this park, though!
The woodie is very old-school. Bumpy but loaded with crazy air!
It was also an inspiration for the original Colossus at SFMM.
Thumbs up for Garbles leaving shortly after this picture was taken!
We aren't exactly sure what these are...
but they are delicious! Deep fried cheese in only a way that a Mexican park could do it!
Yes, any park that allows you to hold an owl for $3.50 is at least worth visiting just for that!
The owl doesn't look quite as impressed with Caesar! lol
EVIL! EVIL! EVIL RIDE!!! (But I do admit that I sort of liked it!)
And yes, we all survived!!!
They still have one of those super-old simulators like the one that used to be at Coney Island.
It was amazing! Everything was completely retro about it!
This, IMO is the real star of the park! Kennywood's old Laser Loop now known as Cascabel! And oddly enough, one of the better operated rides in the park!
This is still one of my all-time roller coaster views!
Some happy smiles on the Schwarzkopf shuttle loop!
Hello from the woodie!
The back car says hello, too.
The park has lots of other flats and stuff - Condor, Scrambler, Himalaya, etc...
This crazy thing was fun! Not as brain-numbing as some of those Intamin looping starships, but still cool!
Here are the fries that took 50 minutes to get and I had to pay for twice. *sigh* If this park had better operations, it would actually be really good!
Played a few games...
And was bummed that the triple loop was closed this time around. Some of us rode it last time, and I'm sure we'll be here again! More reports coming soon!

The Triple Loop was closed 2 weeks ago when I was there! Since the TPR trip in 2013, I have been back to Mexico City 4 times and each time it's been closed! Didn't even bother with La Feria because of this...
Oh cool, you guys are in México. Hopefully the rest of the parks will have better operations. Have fun and thanks for sharing.
