CLASSIC COASTER-- Washington State Fair in Puyallup, Sept. 5-21.
Since 1935, the Classic Coaster-- the only remaining wooden fairground coaster in the U.S.-- has been thrilling fairgoers with its steel-railed dips and turns. Rising 55 feet above ground in the midway, it was originally built of Douglas fir beams carried to the grounds by horse-drawn wagons and bolted into place with a Model A Ford (not exactly sure what this means).
Of interest: Dozens of couples entering a local radio station's annual wedding contest have said "I do" while taking the plunge.
Sounds like a roller coaster I could actually go on.
