Meadowlands Fair (NJ)

Monday, June 30, 2003 8:12 AM
Has anyone been to the Meadowlands Fair @ Giants Stadium in East Rutherford this year? I hear that the midway has two coasters- one is definitely a Crazy Mouse and the other is probably some kind of Zyklon/Galaxy/Wildcat. This is, as far as I know, one of the largest fairs in the country, with dozens of rides. Does anyone know what the other coaster is (the website, njfair.com, only lists the Crazy Mouse)?

I was at the Meadowlands Fair this past Saturday. The fair really isn't that much different from previous years. Except this year they put all the kiddie rides in the middle of the midway with all the bigger rides wrapped around them.

As far as rides go, they got, i believe 5 coasters there. There is a Zyklon, which was running pretty good. They also have the Crazy Mouse. Which we weighed just right to get some massive spinning. They also have 3 kiddie coasters.

But its the flat rides that are the best there. The Fireball is always a good one, its just a KMG Afterburner. And Touchdown was very interesting. Think of a trabant with tilt-a-whirl cars on it. They also have the mondial TopScan back and a bunch of other spinning rides. Also, just because I heard it would be a popular ride for the kids, took a spin on the Rockin Tug. And you know what, its actually quite fun. Their dark rides are, well, nothing special to report on. Everyone was in challenge park riding the sling shot. $15 a person, and 2 people per ride. They were launching this thing non-stop.

The one nice thing about this fair though, you extra long rides. We took a ride on the Music Express, 10 minutes long, i kid you not. He kept us going and going and going. It was fun.

This is probably Amusements of America's Zyklon, as they have the contract. If it is called Avalanche then it is definitley AOA's and it was the one that ran at Holiday World.

Is Tango or Flip 'N' Out there?

There are just a few rides I'm willing to travel that far for. I've been told that my local Top Scan is run better than Space Roller, the mouse is nice for a carnival but not worth the trip on its own, and carnival admission is usually steep.

Ah, this is getting my psyched. We're going on the sixth, the last day when it's pay one price day (it was last year).

Tango or Flip 'N' Out are not there. Sorry. The Zyklon is the Avalanche, sorry, forgot to mention that. If you go to www.njfair.com, you can find out about all their promotional nights and such. The POP is definitely worth it.

This is the first year of the "Amusements Of America" Fair, correct? Who ran the fair in previous years? I remember there being a coaster or two, but they must have been different since it was a different operator?

Amusement Of America was part of the fair last year as well. I forget how many years they have done it. But before them was Strates Fairs. They used to have 2 Zyklons and a Looping Coaster.

According to their website, The Meadowlands Fair is new to AoA. I'm not sure which rides are their rides, though, since the Meadowlands is usually a big amalgamation of midways.

Space Roller, for example, belongs to Cumberland Valley Shows.
