The 2007 Tulsa State Fair saw attendance dip and ride-related accidents rise. The fair drew 987,057, down 7 percent from 2006. The fair also saw Mega Ride pass sales decline 10 percent and midway coupon sales plummet 29 percent. Bjorklund said he doesn’t believe the closing of Bell’s Amusement Park at the fairgrounds had anything to do with the lower attendance. Bell’s had coordinated its amusement park rides with those offered on the fair’s midway until its lease expired in November 2006.
