I was out on Thursday for awhile.

In a nutshell, some things did not get off to a good start.

Including me.. I have not been outside in the heat too much this summer so the day took its toll on me. Also I forgot to bring a camera battery and the AA adapter tray for it!

Some stuff did not open till late morning into afternoon.

I will be back out early tomorrow morning to see whats going on.

We were in WI last Thursday and felt like taking a break from the waterparks in the dells and decicded to drive up for the day to visit the fair. We'll be doing a full article on it, but here are some notes:

- The fair is HUGE. It took us just about all day to cover the grounds, food, midway etc. Very well kept grounds and the permanent rides are a nice touch (Ye Old Mill, Rapids Ride, Sky Rides, Tower, Haunted House).
- Fighter and Wade's wheel were down just about all day. Crews were troubleshooting the issues.
- Joints, Food, Rides were making money. Rides were offering a discounted ticket promo. If a ride was normally 6 tickets, they would only be charging 5 on opening day.
- Ward Hall's side show was ginning.
- Rides, joints, and food all looked top notch. Very well flashed too I might add - probably some of the best I have seen in a long time.
- Heartbreaker didnt seem to be doing too much.
- Magnum's refurb job looked excellent.
- New Wisdom Viper looked great and seemed to be holding its own. It's got a different paint scheme - red.

That's all for now. I will have more info in our article...
