WW Frontier Days #7

I don't remember the name of either of these rides (I didn't go on them, and we didn't really spend much time in this section of the fair), but they looked quite bright and cheery against the darkened, stormy sky. The ring puts people in what looks like a roller coaster car and spins them up and around, and of course they go upside-down at the top, and of course it stops there for a few moments. The tall tower seats people around a ring, facing out, slowly takes them to the top, and then drops them straight down. VERY frightening, if you ask me! But then, I'm kind of a wimp when it comes to fair and amusement park rides. I'll take the bumper cars, thank you! Oh, another note - the green flag on the ring ride is the Washington State flag. It's green and has a portrait of George Washington, America's first president. (Kind of boring, actually.)

No way would you ever get me on that thing!

Great shot, however. Spooky!
