Rainier AmusementsIt turns out Oregonians really like to have fun!

The carnival at the Oregon State Fair promises to be as fun and thrilling as ever, thanks to the professional efforts of Rainier Amusements of Portland. Their awesome collection of rides and games—including seven new rides—is a big reason why so many people make plans to attend the fair.

Of the 48 rides scheduled to appear this year, six are what we call spectaculars—rides that can raise the hair on your arms. They include the Giant Wheel, the Artic Blast, the Wave Swinger, the Drop Tower (Hi-Jacker), the Power Surge, and the Pharoah’s Fury.
