Rides, rides, and...more rides! They are all at the carnival at the Wisconsin Valley Fair in Marathon Park until Sunday.

The ferris wheel and tilt-a-whirl are just a few of the favorites. Aaron Mueller of Wausau had trouble making a top choice.

"This tornado thing is pretty good and this Star Ship 9,000 is pretty good too," he said. His friend Alex Pellowski agreed and said he likes the tilt-a-whirl and star ship, as well.

There are approximately 22 rides at the carnival. This is the 4th year that North American Midway Entertainment in putting on the show.
They have been open this year since February and have been traveling around the country bringing their carnival to many different cities. When the fair leaves Wausau they will travel to the Illinois State Fair and then the Kansas State Fair.

"What goes into the carnival is a lot of organization" says Pat Repp, General Manager of North American Midway Entertainment. "All of our employees have been extensively trained on their positions here."

Repp says Wausau is as far north as they travel, but that they love the area.
