We finally made it to the rides and she confidently strode towards the merry-go-round and hopped up onto the horse of her choice. I don't need any help, thank you very much. Just pay for my ticket and let's get this show on the road!
While she went round and round, up and down, and waved to her admirers, my attention was caught by the ride of the year.
I had ridden on this ride at the State Fair in Minnesota. Although severely tempted, I did not get on it here. I have seen the way they put these things together. (or not!)
I rode something similar to this in Minnesota also. I am a sucker for carnival rides. I vividly remember almost falling out of my seat on this one. No seat belts, just hang on. No thanks, not anymore.
Looking back at the some of the crowd and my favorite type of stall. The ones where they sell all the junk for exorbitant prices. Stuff that mostly appeals to kids or adolescent girls. Or elderly Gringos looking for stuff to buy his favorite six year old girlfriend!
