Coaster Thrill Ride ~ 2006 Spring Fair

Puyallup Spring Fair 2006 Spring Fair 2006

The photos above were taken at the 2006 Spring Fair. The Puyallup Spring Fair takes place every year in April and coincides with the Daffodil Festival. The fair is half the size of the September fair. Coaster Thrill Ride, also known as Giant Coaster or just Roller Coaster to the fair, operates during both fairs.

The Puyallup coaster is considered a classic wooden coaster by ACE (American Coaster Enthusiasts). ACE is the world's largest non-profit organization that "fosters and promotes the conservation, appreciation, knowledge, and enjoyment of the classic wooden roller coaster and the contemporary steel roller coaster." An ACE Coaster Classic is about a traditional experience. One that has been shared by generations of thrill seekers since the golden age of the 1920s when the wild, uninhibited, free wheeling thrills of the wooden coaster established it as the premier thrill ride and an icon of popular culture."

This coaster is also the last remaining wooden coaster that operates only during a fair (Spring and Fall), and that also runs vintage Prior and Church trains. So, the Puyallup coaster fits well within the "Coaster Classic" status.
