|The Western Washington Fair is very easy to find. The best way is to take the Hwy 167 exit off of I-405 and follow it into Puyallup. From there just follow the signs to the fair parking lots.||

|Kersplash is a cool little water coaster. It goes up a lift hill, into this very steep little drop (on the left). It then goes back up and drops down another drop into a splash of water (on the right). It then repeats the whole thing again.|
|Here is one of the cars for Monster Mouse. It is a fun little mouse coaster with a big drop before all the switchbacks. Then at the end there is a crazy helix-type thing. It is quite a bit different from other wild mouse coasters I've ridden.|
|One of the best kiddie rides at the fair is the canoe ride. Kids climb into little boats and travel around a short river. The ride has better theming than a lot of "theme parks" do. During the ride the river travels through Indian teepees and a rock cave. There are also totem poles and other fancy theming elements.|
|This is El Nino, a pretty popular ride at carnivals. This is a really intense ride that spins riders around and upside down. Notice the feet hanging off the side.|
|The Super Orbiter is another popular carnival attraction that spins riders around. It is kind of the next generation of Octopus rides.|
|This is called the Hang Glider and is kind of like the Paratrooper except you lay down on this ride. It wasn't real intense but was a cool, almost relaxing ride. We had a lot of fun playing "Superman" on this ride. If you haven't seen one of these at your local park, look for one in the future.|
