Thrilling New Rides At The 2019 New York State Fair
New rides for adults, kids, and there's even one for the whole family at the 2019 Great New York State Fair.
Thrill-seekers rejoice! The biggest new ride is The Frisbee, which seats riders around a circle. As they swing back and forth on a long arm, the circle spins around and around.
The other new thrill ride, the Downdraft, swings riders in a wide circle as mechanical arms raise and lower quickly.
The thrill ride Rock Star is back after a two-year absence, and the Axis ride is an update of The Sizzler.
Younger fairgoers can look forward to Charlie Chopper, Dalmatians and a new NASCAR rides with a new Bumper Boat ride for the family. Back this year is the newly refurbished Silver Streak family ride. The full list of rides can be found here.
