Wearing an insulated jacket and still feeling chilly, I did a round of the midway before the opening this morning. No students today, though all are advised to check out the fair from now to Labour Day to watch how the guests interact with the rides — and with each other around the rides. Rides don’t exist for their own purposes. They exist to do something meaningful for the guest, on a sensory level or a social level, or both.
Things that were a long way from assembled when we left yesterday are now ready for guests. This one below looked like this yesterday afternoon. Teamwork and experience!
The Zipper that was reclining yesterday was standing up today.
After the official opening, there were frogs to be flung and ducks to be picked.
We’ll be back on the midway next week!
