South Carolina State Fair
Has the S.C. State Fair added a single new ride in the past 20 years? I stopped going years ago because of this. Instead of adding any new rides they just take away rides that either break down or are deemed unsafe. Additionally, they got rid of the only game I was willing to play: "Jones, I Got It!"
I could tell you every twist and turn in the "haunted house" rides... because they're the exact same ones from when I was a kid 20 years ago. Except 3/4ths of the bulbs have burned out of the props that are supposed to light up and scare you.
When you add nothing new and take away the only interesting rides: rollercoasters, etc.... well, that's not a winning formula.
I know these are petty complaints, and the fair isn't really targeting someone of my age group and demographic. However, it always peeved me at how whoever runs the fair has made ZERO effort to improve it in any way, shape, or form during my lifetime.
Actually, it only takes one drink to get me loaded. Trouble is, I can't remember if it's the thirteenth or fourteenth.
