This year the fair is offering a new ride called “Speed”, which goes up 125 feet and spins at 13 revolutions a minute. This particular ride is also new to North America this year and is one of only a handful that now exist in the country.
The new food options this year are fried cheese curds, San Jose Mexican, and Wacky Burgers.
There are also a few big names in the fair’s concert lineup which include the Doobie Brothers, Boyz II Men, and Hot Chelle Ray.
Gates open at 3 PM Wednesday. Tickets are only $1 for the opening day.
