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. wwfairmonstermousecar.jpg (12772 bytes)
wwfcanoeride.jpg (25369 bytes) 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. photo by Aaron Young
photo by Aaron Young 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.
