There is do doubt that fair time is fun time, even in the rain. But the price for having fun, and performing death-defying tricks, is definitely going up. Here are three examples:

Puyallup Fair Extreme Scream The Mountain Dew© Extreme Scream (left) is, by far, one of the most popular of the 2003 Fair rides.
This 20-story high ride rockets 12 people up a tower pushing 3 G's and then thrusts them back down at a negative 1 G. It's the only ride of it's kind in the Pacific Northwest and the tallest structure in Puyallup.
Price: $10
Ride lasts 30 seconds.
The Big Sling (right) gives thrill seekers their daily dose of adrenaline as they are propelled up to 275 feet in the air - all while safely strapped into the ride capsule, of course. The tallest portable ride in the world, the Big Sling measures in at an astounding 180 feet.
Price: $30
Ride lasts 30 seconds.
Puyallup Fair Big Sling
Puyallup Fair SCAD Dive Forget about being strapped in. Forget about bungee cords. Forget about your heart pumping.
The SCAD Dive (left) is labeled as the "hottest new X-treme ride in the world." It offers the brave souls who board it a pure, unadulterated 90-foot free fall. While fully secured in a safety harness, guests plummet toward earth like rocks, only to land in a specially engineered double net that provides a softly coushioned landing.
Price: $40
Ride lasts 3 seconds.

There you go, $80 in one minute and three seconds. Is it worth it? That's for you to decide.
