Raleigh -- After a year of controversy about ride openings, MCW has received the official data from the North Carolina State Fair about ride openings for 2006. Out of a total of 109 rides, only 6 did not open, 3 kiddies and 3 spectaculars. At least one additional kiddie ride opened later in the day. These numbers more than satisfied the contracts 93 ride requirement. There were 38 kiddies, 35 majors (100%) and 30 spectaculars for a total of 103 rides open on Friday, October 13th at contract deadline. Listed below is the ride list, by category, and the rides that did not make opening by contract deadline. MCW will be filing a full report on the fair sometime next week. Our thanks to Wesley Wyatt and his staff for the up to date information.
