Summer Adventures at Fair Park ends after one year

Posted: Updated:

A major effort to make Fair Park a year-round attraction is no more.

Summer Adventures, the State Fair-operated amusement park on the fairgrounds, won't make it to a second year said spokeswoman Sue Gooding.

Gooding blamed poor attendance for why Summer Adventures didn't work, but didn't give any specific numbers.

A water surfing ride and the Top o' Texas Tower were among the big offerings for the summer amusement park in addition to the Midway games available during the State Fair of Texas. The tower is a permanent installation and will still operate during the State Fair.

Gooding said the only way Summer Adventures could come back is if someone came up with an idea to boost attendance.
