  • (1888PressRelease) August 02, 2019 - Monterey, CA - The Monterey County Fairís popular Carnival returns this year with 30 rides for the 83rd Annual Fair, set for Aug. 29-Sept. 2, 2019.

    Come ride on the safe and exciting rides from Helm and Sons Amusements. There is a stellar line-up of action-packed rides this year, which features 30 great rides to enjoy, from spectacular scream-inducing rides to fun rides and attractions for families and kids. With new carnival rides and improved games, the Fair is popular with families who want to bring their kids and grandkids out for a day of great family fun.

    There is fun for all ages in the Carnival, with rides including the 70-foot tall Century Wheel and the unique red-white-and-blue Americana Wheel. Enjoy a slide on burlap sacks on the Alpine Slide ó every kid loves slides, and the almost 100-foot-long Alpine Slide lets you and three of your friends slide down side-by-side at the same time!

    Take a thrilling stroll through the House of the Dead, if you dare; or walk through the festive Mardi Gras, a two-story mirror maze with a spiral slide at the end. The little ones will enjoy The Cool Bears, which features four giant "cool" bears that they can spin and sit in.

    The Xtreme Star Dancer is one of the most popular rides on the midway. Upon boarding, riders are secured with over-the-shoulder restraints, and as the claw begins to rotate, it starts to swing back and forth until it reaches its full height of 60 feet in the air! Combining a spinning and swinging motion, the Star Dancer provides riders with a completely unique riding experience.

    For the little riders, there are wide selection of rides in Cub Country, a special kid-friendly zone with rides and amenities just their size. No scary monsters or screaming fast rides here! Just gentle fun for little ones and their families, including the Fantasy Carousel, Baja Buggies, Turtle Races, Flying Dragon, Krazy Planes and Gummi and Firedog Inflatables.

    Some of the new rides this year include the ever-popular Gravitron, the classic Tilt-a-Whirl, the exciting Gold Miner, the max-intensity Insomniac, the spinning Tornado and the aptly named Sizzler. If the sizzling speed doesn't give you a clue, the added twirling of the cars certainly will!
