Riding the Arizona State Fair: Sky Flyer, G-Force, The Zipper, and Tons of Fried-Filled Adrenaline

It's time once again for the Arizona State Fair. Everyone has their favorite part. Lots of people (including yours truly) enjoy corn dogs as big as your forearm. The pig races are irresistible. And there's the temptation of trying to win an enormous stuffed animal that you have no room for at home.

For me, the big draw is thrill rides. Since Six Flags Magic Mountain is a few hundred miles away, I look forward to the Arizona State Fair for easy access to a dose of adrenaline. Here are the five craziest attractions at the Fair this year.
