Live update from the Minnesota State Fair...

Crowds were decent today as the weather is nearly perfect with temps right around 75-80 degrees under partly sunny skies. There was good action on the midway with plenty of riders and people were playing the games. Steve Vandervorste has his new Pinfari Windstorm coaster here and it is quite spectacular. Other new rides include Woods new magic glass house, Steck's new Wisdom Beetle Bobs and also Mike Demas' inversion.


More updates soon...

The new stuff up there looks fantastic (from the photos the other day here)! No one had said anything about Michael Woods' new Daytona ride? Did it not make it? Was curious what it looks like as its been hyped up all year!

Don't know who Stevk is but the BETTLE BOBS belongs to Showtime Rides (Nick Pelino). A little reseach can go a long way

It's a typo, should be Steck. Nick Pelino is the son-in-law of the late Dwayne Steck...

It had been pretty hot up there. In the 90's with what they would call, high humidity, something Minnesotans aren't used to. Give it some time, see what happens as it was supposed to cool off.

Yes, it was a typo... I was using my iPhone and it was hard to see when I was writing! Sorry!

The Beetle Bobs was pretty nice though. I did take a few videos and will upload them.
