Photo Trip Report: Pima County Fair

Postby JimmyBo » Tue May 11, 2010 6:39 pm

The only thing really needs to be said here is... the Pima County Fair has the most credits in one place in the entire state of Arizona...that's how freaing lame this state is. There were 5 credits (1 of them powered) at the Fair this year and no park in Arizona has more than 3 credits. If you decide to read this then you are awesome and should pat your back. There were SHARK exhibits at the Fair this year. That's right...SHARKS!

Anyway, off to the pictures and the wonderful sarcastic captions by yours truely. Have fun trying to pick out the serious captions...
001.jpg
Boo-Ya! It's the Fair! It's full of awesome carnies, fatty foods, deadly rides, and homo animals
002.jpg
This pig was the featured swine at the Fair this year. He won first prize for fattiness
003.jpg
Here are the champs and they sing the Queen song "Ride my bicycle" instead of "We are the champions". They were a little lost
004.jpg
Here's the emperor from Emperor's New Groove. He looks pretty bored
005.jpg
This is a duck and they are the delicious dark meat
006.jpg
This is a turkey and he will be my thanksgiving dinner this year. I only bought him for $10 so I hope he survives until November
007.jpg
Beef! It's what's for dinner! This cow was sold to Arby's...NO JOKE!
008.jpg
Oh wow! Kids look away...it's Pig Porn! Look at those nipples!
009.jpg
Off to see Mega Shark vs Giant Crocodile Hunter Killing Sting Ray
010.jpg
They have a Great White! AWESOME! Where's Dave and Ice Bat to check this out
011.jpg
Sharks just swimming and about to bust out of the tank and eat everyone watching the show
012.jpg
All the other sharks are coming up with a plan to take over the world and destroy all humans
013.jpg
After watching the sharks bite off the trainer's hand, it was time for us to eat
014.jpg
No Fair is complete without an Ostrich Leg...I mean Turkey Leg
015.jpg
Ready to tackle the beast!
016.jpg
Cassie decided to get real food and they were so impressed with her decision that they gave her a toy
017.jpg
Forget the toy! It's time to eat! I'm doing my best impression at the shark eating the trainer's hand off
018.jpg
Now it's time to check out the rides and carnies in all their glory
019.jpg
I spot some awesome rides out there!
020.jpg
Credit! It's the Rocket Rockin Roller Rollin Coaster
021.jpg
You will never see me get in one of these because a friend of mine nearly fell to her death on the Zipper at the Del Mar Fair when I was a kid. My only Zipper credit will be the one on my pants
022.jpg
This beauty was an awesome beast
023.jpg
Creep Show! Why pay money for this when all you need to do is walk around and see the carnies
024.jpg
Star Flyer goodness. Although, I wouldn't trust it at a Fair because it still scares me silly when riding at a REAL park
025.jpg
Credit! Crazy Coaster! Your typical spinning silly wild mousey coastey
026.jpg
The Ferris Wheel was closed because they had a jumper the day before...
027.jpg
SPEED! IT'S LIKE A DRUG!
028.jpg
Credit! Everyone loves the rib breaking, bone smashing, baby maker punching, rough sex ride they get on this 8th wonder of the world
029.jpg
Time to cool off on a hot, hellish day in Arizona
030.jpg
Disk-O! Hey Bruno!
031.jpg
Any one now why it's called Dodgem? Anyone? Answers will be much appreciated
032.jpg
Techno Jump is the wannabe "Bouncey Bouncey" Ride from the TPR Spain Tour. I have yet to ride one that was as insane and as intense as the one in Parque Zaragoza.
033.jpg
Here's the lame attempt at trying to be cool and top the "Bouncey Bouncey" Ride
034.jpg
Freefall! At least no Zombies are trying to run up and eat your flesh...that's left up to the sharks in the tank.
035.jpg
This guy peed his pants and the ride was closed after this shot. Some people are just so weak in the bladder
036.jpg
Credit! "It's, like the most awesome, like, ride in, like, the entire, like, universe" Direct quote taken from rider after getting off this ride...like.
037.jpg
It's, like, a snake or something
038.jpg
Look at all the, like, people, like, enjoying themselves and some junk
039.jpg
No big @$$ bruises on this slide on anyone's @$$
040.jpg
Time to check out the games and carnies
042.jpg
I am in heaven! Fried EVERYTHING!
043.jpg
Cassie got a frozen banana because she likes her arteries to not be clogged by fatty mcfatfat
044.jpg
Time for Fried Oreos and for my heart to stop...Boo-Ya!
045.jpg
Cassie's first ever fried anything at the Fair. She was not pleased and enjoyed her banana instead
046.jpg
Why aren't Fried Oreos a food group? They are so good for you!
047.jpg
Here's the infamous carosuel. Why is it infamous? Google "Pima County Fair Carosuel" and let me know what you find...seriously...I want to know!
048.jpg
And for all those credit whores and just plain whores...here is Puff the Magic Weed Dragon
049.jpg
He's huffing and puffing and enjoying Mary Jane
050.jpg
Pima County Fair will be 100 next year but still younger than Jeff Johnson. (sorry Jeff, I had to)
051.jpg
Check out this awesome train display! Model trains are cool
052.jpg
This train display just got cooler because it has a Fair full of carnies!
053.jpg
It even has a miniature golf course! At least Elissa isn't here screaming "Penalty!" at everyone. If you don't know what Coaster Expedition that is from then you need to start buying the Coaster Expedition DVD's because they are AMAZING!
054.jpg
Let me just go get my sewing kit and eat it because that's a freakin cake!
055.jpg
Bungee Jumping > Sky diving. Yes, you read that right! Feel free to comment because you are all wrong unless you agree with me
056.jpg
Here's where all the freaks and geeks and nerds and turds live...the REAL freak show!
057.jpg
Now go and enjoy a fried anything at your local Fair because they want your support!

That is all!
Do not believe this post!

90% of the time, I am sarcastic all the time...it's science!

Awesome JimmyBo, I'm still leery about riding any rides at any fair.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

I won't go near one of these rides, either. They always sound like they're on the verge of falling apart.

Sharks at a fair?!? THIS IS AWESOME.

This is one of the greatest trip reports ever, even if there were no sharks. You are a god among men.

I agree with Zippers being one of the scariest fair rides out there. Took me a ton of courage to get on my first time, but I ended up loving it. My favorite fair ride no doubt.

That last coaster you showed looks VERY painful!

Zipper is the only ride in the entire world to make me feel sick. The speed ride and ARM tower are easily my favorites in the entire fair. We have the same fair in the OC(RCS) and I like the ride collection, but they havent added a new coaster forever. The speed ride is awesome, but the capacity sucks, and although the arm tower is small it packs a CRAZY punch and gives awesome airtime.

How can you have an encounter when there are no Great Whites in captivity?

For a split second I thought you were going to say there was a cred at the fair named "Manta" which had a preshow about Sharks and Stingrays :lmao:

Great TR! I absolutely *love* Fabbri drop rides. Despite being only 35 meter they give a very solid ride and if the carnie is running them on manual mode, it's even better!

I had sex with N-Tag before you did.

Looks like an awesome fair! Nice to see the Hi Miler up and running...when I went to the Houston Rodeo and rode it back in March it suffered a pretty bad failure (chains went flying off the ride...I guess I need to do that Photo TR).

Anyways, awesome pictures! Seems like they have SO much to offer there.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Hey, did you have to use the "Fastpass" line?

I am sure some Disney lawyers will be interested in this.....

Looks like a nice fair. Great photos and TR.

There is no way to eat a frozen banana that does not look obscene.
