The Mississippi state fair is back in town, in Jackson, Mississippi. And, this year's state fair has over 60 rides to choose from, which may seem overwhelming for many eager fair lovers. So, North American Midway Entertainment has listed some of the most popular and fun rides that you may want to visit first.
The Crazy Mouse Spinning Roller Coaster made the top of the list. This fun roller coaster is made up of 1,200 feet of track that turns and dips in ways that make riders want to come back for more. You actually get to spin on this roller coaster.
You will find that the Mega Drop is the tallest ride at the fair, a 130 foot vertical drop. This ride is definitely not for the faint of heart. Some call it the tower of power. The ride lifts you 130 feet in the air, and hovers you high in the air for a few second before it plunges you to the ground.
On the Fireball, you can spin 360 degrees. For a cooler ride, you can hit the White Water Flume, but you are sure to get really wet. For those with a need for speed, you will find the Remix II and Himalaya are very fast rides. They are both sure to get your blood flowing. And, of course there's always the Ferris Wheel that will leisurely take you 85 feet in the air for great views of the Fairgrounds and surrounding areas.
For smaller kids, there is the famous Merry Go Round, along with the Wacky Worm Rollercoaster, and Rockin' Tug, which are all located in Kiddy Land.
