Six new rides will be joining the Wade Shows Midway lineup this year at the Great New York State Fair.

The biggest of the new rides is The Frisbee, which seats riders around a circle.  As the riders 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.

Three other new rides -- Charlie Chopper, Dalmatians and NASCAR -- offer excitement for younger fairgoers, while the new Bumper Boats ride is fun for the entire family.

“The Midway is a highlight of the Fair for many people. Our excellent partners at Wade Shows always put on a great show with exciting ride, games and food. As for me, I’m looking forward to a ride on the Frisbee!” said Troy Waffner, Fair Director.

The 2019 State Fair runs August 21st through Labor Day,
