The New Rides at the South Plains Fair Are Sure to Please! [VIDEO]

Subscribe to Awesome 98 on

This year the Panhandle-South Plains Fair brings us a whole new midway. And this midway is brought to the fair by Reithoffer Shows, which has been around since 1896.

In 2017, the most intense ride is SPEED, which you can get a glimpse of at 2:23 in the video above.

From The South Plains Fair:

This is a high-speed thrill attraction in every sense of the word. Passengers are secured by over the shoulder harnesses as they dangle in expectation. The Speed stands 120 feet tall and has two sets of two seats that are mounted at the end of each arm, back to back. As the arm spins whipping the cars at the end it produces an acceleration of 3.5 G’s on the riders. This is the one that will make you feel like an eagle soaring through the air and enjoying a birds-eye view for miles!

You can see the complete lineup of new rides, as well as old favorites, by taking a look at the South Plains Fair’s ride lineup page.
