ended up not even going to the fair. They did bring the drop tower but was sorta cheap. The car is attached to a chassis which lifts you up, then the chassis releases the car and then magnetic brakes stop you and that is it, not popping but up. Did get about 40 minutes of zin riding on go karts last night though.
God has a plan for us all, though sometimes we cannot see it, he has one and all you have to do is believe.
