Check out videos of some of the major rides coming to this year's fair!


NEW FOR 2016


inversionThe Inversion features a tripod of passenger seats which can hold a total of 12 passengers. The main arm of the ride swings side to side like a pendulum then swings to invert passengers completely around and upside down. The inversion can reach a height of nearly 80 feet.






quasarThis fast paced thrill ride holds two passengers per car. Secured by a lap bar the ride spins and the main arm raises the center of the wheel creating a unique undulating sensation for each of the cars.







orbiterThe Orbiter is an exciting teen ride which features 4 twirling arms holding three spinning seats each. This Italian made ride twirls riders around until their seats are perpendicular with the ground below, quite the sight day and night.
