The State Fair of Virginia and amusement contractor Deggeller Attractions offer a wide variety of rides to suit guests of all ages.

Midway Madness


 Hold on tight, big fun ahead!

 Spectacular Rides – rare to many traveling amusement companies, much like large attractions found in a permanent amusement park

 Thrill Rides – combine fast motions with high speeds and sometimes heights to give patrons a thrill like no other!

 Family Rides – These are for riders of all ages and often allow families to ride together.



Big thrills for little folks.

 Kiddie Rides – These rides are geared for small children and do not include fast motions.

 Kid’s Corral – Coin-operated farm-themed rides for children not tall enough for Kiddie rides
