Let me just start off by saying i have always supported the mercer fair, only having good comments about it. I have not missed a year for ovet 50 years. Me as a child my chilren and now grandbabies. After tonight i agree, they should quit having it, it is a rip off and a joke.. i have taken my oldest grandson all week. Tonight i took the two little ones as well. They got their braclets and run to the first ride, the man working looked at my grandson and said "he cant ride this" i asked why not. The man said he can only be 42 inches read the sign. I asked what he could ride and the man said he will have to ride the big rides.i told the man youre kidding right, he is to little, i will just get my money back. He was very sarcastic and said it is nonrefundable. There has been very few people attending this week and it is vety understandable. The prices are crazy. The 2 little ones played 3 games and it cost 30.00. Very vety disappoined.

I hate to inform you but is like at an amusement park as well not just at a county fair. Holiday world, Kings island etc. There are several rides that u can't ride if u are OVER 42". I ran into with my daughter.

That would have been better since there was only 3 rides anyways. It is such a disappointment for little ones.

This is not a amusement park with a huge choice but a genertic county fair with 2 choices. Three kids rides or the big rides. Dont waste your money. It is not worth attending.

Didn't go last year and wont go this year. Heard not lots of people are going. Maybe Mercer Countians will speak by not going

So sad to hear. What can you expect from a Fair Board that likes the truck pull to make the money to build more hours barns.

I bet you would have been even more upset if the ride ripped your son's head off because he was too tall.
