Loved the Nightmare castle looks great!
Great pictures... I enjoyed them!
Huss Tornado
Dutch Wheel
Indy 500 coaster
Not a bad lineup.

There were 7 rides, 8 if you what to count the live pony ride, that are not Reithoffers.

NightMare dark ride (christani I believe)
Capn Hooks Playstation
Western Mouse kiddie coaster
Frog Hopper
Mini Pirate Ship

What is on the other end of the midway?

That Entrance Gate is new this year and they probably have the kiddie land entrance gate up on the other end of the midway.

I like the look of the Indy 500 coaster much Better than the Racing Coaster even though they are the same coaster type. The Indy 500 has the wooden panel scenery vs. the vinyl on the Racing...

The Pharaoh’s Fury has new turbo lights up the A-Frames that were put on during the summer. They look great.

I also like how they added the turbo lights up the rest area umbrellas as well.

Remember along with Fredrick the other half of the Orange Unit is in Lexington NC and the Blue Unit is in Bloomsburg PA with some stuff pre-set in Perry GA.

Awesome photos dccradio. I am a huge Huss Tornado fan, so those pictures were my favorite. It sucked that it wasn't at the fair in Essex Vermont this year, but I heard that they were having problems with it and it needed to be fixed. The photos you took of the Dutch Wheel were cool as well..

The Mouse Coaster at the fair this year; is this a new ride, or does it usally travel with the Blue Unit? I know about the Wild Mouse Coaster, but I have never seen the coaster you had pictures of. That looks like a lot of fun.

Anyway, good job with the pics.. Hope you had fun.
Great shots as usual i love looking at your photos
Great album Mark![:D][:D][:D] I especially enjoyed the aerial shots and the shots of the Dutch Wheel. What a cool fair. Thanks!

Last night we went to the Great Frederick Fair and I was quite impressed. A full trip report to come after I finish uploading the pictures. I did upload 16 pages of my daylight pictures of the fair and the can be seen here.

Frederick is a neat old fairgrounds. I visited a few years ago. It is hilly and the walkways between the rides going up the hill are very narrow and get jampacked! They bring the big rides there.
Pics look good, nice line up, at least what we can see of it... Can't wait to see the real pics from on the grounds.

Well we will be going to the fair later this week but today we drove into Frederick to do the walking tour which meant we drove by the fairgrounds. So since the camera was with me and I wasn't driving I snapped a few candid pictures from the vehicle as we passed the midway this morning and this afternoon. I also have included a few pictures of Reithoffer's wheel as it could be seen from a number of points around the city of Frederick.

I know these pics aren't that good since they were taken from a moving vehicle, but it should give you a taste of the fair. More pics to come!

Pictures are here...

Yes John C Perry is awesome. It gets bigger every year. The grounds are very beautiful and well kept too.
