If you love dinosaurs, check out Jurassic Planet, where you can discover fossils, watch real paleontologists at work and learn all about the ancient beasts.  Love pirates? You can enroll in Buccaneer Boot Camp and see if you have what it takes to hit the seas – either way you can leave the fair with custom-made pirate accessories.  

Some days will feature The Great American Wild West Show, a celebration of the American West featuring cowboys, Native Americans, Hollywood Heroes, daredevil riders and much more. For show dates, check out the website here.  You can also learn how to be a circus performer by attending Flying Trapeze School, or clown around with the circus animals visiting.
