If anybody remembers, last year, I went to the Puyallup Fair. The Puyallup Fair is Washington State's most profitable attraction, drawing over 1,000,000 guests each year in its September 10th - 26th span. The fair is well known for its animals, its food, its vendors, and its rides. Naturally, being on a theme park website, I like the check out the latter. This year, I went again and did so.
So now... Let's start off with a POV!
And now some good news from Lucario.....
"Guess what? No long, irrelevent prologue crap! We're getting right to the photos, people!"
I'm setting my glee free!
Turnstiles, like at most major theme parks. Just because there isn't a prologue doesn't mean it won't include this kind of shot. =)
Enter through the Blue Gate and to your right.... very unhealthy food!
They call it YoungLife because your life will end young, due to the fact that it's at a fair and it will be automatically bad for you.
The same group as last year (Minus Savannah and Jennifer, plus new exchange student and her daughter. FYI, the exchange student has been to Everland! She probably has a credit on Aquatrax! =) ).
That Fiesta that was advertised last year.... Now it's the real deal!
Does anybody know what this is?
I'm sure everybody knows what this is!
Kinda like a claustrophobic, traveling version of Hammerhead Shark.
I remember I rode that rotor thing 2 years ago. And I remember I rode that launch tower thingy last year! (Yes I know it's called Extreme Scream)
I remember I rode this last year too.
And here we are, a VERY old, ACE approved woodie!
According to the Index, this ride isn't operating...
Jumping. The portable, claustrophobic version of the one at Canada's Wonderland.
Pretty much an arctic themed Musik Express.
Ring of Fire, but with a different name.
Now, time for the chairswing!
Wanna see what happens after this? Watch the POV!
Next up is Sky Diver.
Control panel shot!
After riding twice, I really wanted to just sit down in one of these things.
Next is the flying thingy. Like a __________, more ___________ version of Hang Glider at Wild Waves.

I like the new 'ticket' system. You buy 'tickets', but instead of getting actual tickets, you get a card with the amount of tickets you purchased. Then, you go to whatever ride you want to ride (that accepts tickets), give the card to a person, and they scan it. If it works, you can just get on the ride. Easy, simple, quick, and more organized! Although you will probably want to track exactly how many 'tickets' you're using, because you can easily loose track of how many points you spend.
Fluffy, fluffy dalmation filled with medicine and goo!
I was at the fair today. Though when I got there, the only coaster still running was the wooden one due to rain.
That coaster is so amazing. It's sad that it is almost never open because it is such a good ride. Also, the rotor there is amazing just for how much the floor drops. The one at Six Flags Great America only dropped like 1 foot.
I get the DVD, which is $20. Ripoff, but I still enjoy getting them.
After that, we head for this hypnotist. Amazingly, I am picked to be hypnotized!
I didn't get fully hypnotized, but I can tell that it really is possible! I lost my concentration at the last second while we were being hypnotized, so I didn't get the full effect. But it was still very interesting, and for skeptics I think I can say that it really can work!
Like last year, I got a Bull Chip...
...and some milk.
But I also stop and get some Yakisoba noodles.
I personally thought it had too much vegetables in it, but if you combine it with teriyaki chicken, this yakisoba is pretty good!
The everything-on-a-stick stall. I can't believe I didn't stop here!
Mom got some corn-on-the-cob, her favorite.
Mom loves these!
This turkey does NOT look happy!
Need some coffee? Sasquatch will help you get the energy you need!
I'll end with this random rock band; one of many likely to be at the fair.
Thanks for reading! =)
Doesn't know how to spell 'Enthusiast'... or 'Hyundai'.
Talking of rockbands,one of my all time faves are playing on the 20th,Queensryche if anyone happens to be going it would be great to read a review or see pics or both(don't want to be greedy!).As they haven't played over here for 2 or 3 years. Many Thanks
I went to the Puyallup fair last week also. Went during the $2 ride day which made it a bit cheaper than normal. I wanted to ride the coasters, specifically Kersplash which I had never ridden which is up for sale right now, so although the dirty water in it put me off before I was going to ride it this time. We rode the wood coaster 3 times and all were good. I didnt get last seat on first two rides and was starting to worry the re-build took away a little airtime, but when I rode the last seat on my 3rd ride it clearly is still all there, what a great little coaster, to bad it was open a bit more than twice a year! Then we rode the Wildcat, a fun coaster that has a fairly run down appearence now. Then we went to Kersplash, we watched a few riders and could see you would get a bit wet but not to bad, the water in this thing always looks like a sewer so I have avoided this one for years. Anyway, I have to say I was surprised how fun a ride it is, nice swooping drops, Miler makes some decent coasters, I rode the little kiddie coaster made by Miler at Oaks Parks in Portland made by Miler and would say that may be the best kiddie coaster I have ridden.
We wanted to ride the Mouse but as previously stated, they dont let you ride alone, and last time my son and I rode together it was cramped as hell. I am 6' and hes 6'5" so we just cant fit in it. I dont get why single riders cant go on this. We rode a few flat rides, got some fried clams and then took off. This fair/park has more rides and better coasters than the nearby 6 Flags Wild Waves if you ask me.
