Along with my co-worker, her Husband and their 10 year old Son.
We went to the Maricopa County Fair Sunday, April 16th. We arrived
when the gates opened and stayed til 5:00PM. Butler Amusements did
a great job with the midway layout. I liked the Topiary that they
beautified their midway with, looked great.

$6.00 for parking
$6.00 addmission
$25.00 POP Wristbands

I didn't see anything new, but the rides looked great. The ScRaMbLeR
had a new paint job. The Zillerator had new cars on it, atleast newer
than the ones from a few years ago.

The turnout was minimal, infact that went in our favor as we didn't
have a long wait and lines were short. The 10 year old that was with
us never rode a coaster before, he was a bit timid. So I walked him
around the Zillerator and showed him the track. I explained to him
how everything works and how the safety features worked, I showed
the little boy that this coaster had no upside down motions. He said
he would like to try it, so we boarded. The little guy was nervous,
he was white knukling it up the lift hill! The first run scared him,
then he said LETS GO AGAIN! After that we rode the Zillerator
six times! I've created a COASTER RIDING MONSTER!
