Midway at the Marion County Fair
INDIANAPOLIS- Staples of the Marion County Fair are the rides, games, and food. Returning again this year, North American Midway Entertainment will be providing fairgoers with this Fair tradition. There is something for the whole family at the Midway. Whether that be a ride on the ferris wheel, eating an elephant ear or winning a prize at the water gun game, the Midway has you covered.
If thrill seeking is what you are looking for, the Midway offers a few exhilarating rides. The Mega Drop shoots riders up 130 feet in the air before heading back down to earth in less than two seconds. Freak Out is a ride that swings riders up to 127 degrees while spinning up to 15 rpms. Two other rides included in the thrill seeking category are Speed and their new ride, The Bullet Coaster.
Don’t worry though! The Midway also provides rides for younger children not quite ready for the thrill of the big rides. Kids have the chance to race parents and friends down the Fun Slide or ride the Wacky Worm kiddie coaster to get a small thrill. The classic Merry-Go Round will be there along with the Speedway and Bumble Bee.
Fair games give participants the chance to show off their skills as they compete for prizes. Whac-a-Mole and Water Gun game allows you to challenge friends, family, or strangers in a group play setting. Shoot Out Star and Lucky Duck are focused on individual performance rather than competing against others.
Nothing says fair more than food! Right? Well, the Midway will be offering classic foods for all to enjoy. Ranging from freshly dipped corn dogs to elephant ears to Make-your-Slush, they’ve got you covered with all the fair food you could possibly dream of.
