Take a look at the photos of the ACTUAL rides that will be set up here in Victoria. Notice how colorful and clean they are [PHOTOS].
KAMIKAZE: This falls under a classic carnival ride. However, I remember it being blue and white.
STORM: This ride is a no for me, dog. Be prepared to get super dizzy and possibly sick.
NO-LIMIT: This is a premium ride and will require additional tickets even if you have a wristband. On a side note, there is a weight limit, which I went over. I was denied entry to this ride.
THE SEA RAY: This one is super colorful with super bright LED lights.
THE CLIFFHANGER: No duct tape on this one.
THE FERRIS WHEEL: Over 50’, guests will get a birds-eye view of the surrounding area!
VERTIGO: Side note, this ride will not fly on a super windy day.
THE PUPPY ROLL: The Puppy Roll is a family ride. It has a double circular motion. I have actually gotten sick from spinning too much on this one.
THE ORIENT EXPRESS: The Orient Express is a kiddie roller coaster that mom and dad can ride along to!
ALIEN ABDUCTION: Most of us grew up with the name the 'Gravitron' Riders experience the feeling of weightlessness as they are pressed against the wall. I can still handle this one.
