Rides are a staple at the State Fair of West Virginia. From the “Stinger” to the Ferris Wheel, there is a total of 49 rides for all fair-goers to experience.
One fair-goer, Mason Kirby-Warner, loves white-knuckles rides, but was nervous about hopping on a ride similar to the one that failed at the Ohio State Fair.
“I’m just scared of what happened in Ohio. I didn’t want that to happen here, so I was just cautious about that,” said Warner.
But that didn’t stop Warner from getting experiencing the white-knuckle thrills.
“I like the turns on it because it turns sharp and it jerks you I guess,” Warner explained.
New to the State Fair this year is the Lollipop Swings. The Racing Roller Coaster was also brought back.
