NAME Unveils Midway Fast Pass at South Carolina State Fair on, 24 Oct 2011 [cached]
The Fast Pass is good for the entire day, said Tony Diaz, general manager of North American Midway's international unit.
The number of Fast Pass users allowed per ride is basically about 20 to 25 percent of overall ride capacity, Diaz said. North American Midway pays for the signs, fencing and banners.
Officials like the look of the midway with the added touch of convenience. Next season, the carnival's plan is to roll out the Fast Pass to other big fairs, including the Canadian route once held by the old Conklin Shows.
"It is the future," Diaz said.
The oil industry continues to thrive in western Canada, including Saskatchewan and Manitoba, Diaz said.
For 2012, the international unit plans to add another spectacular ride, most likely another big coaster, Diaz said. It will join two other spectaculars, a flume ride and the Crazy Mouse.
In Columbia, North American Midway personnel worked with fair officials to improve the midway by creating another entrance and widening the pathways.
"We shook it up to make it more customer friendly," Diaz said. "The entry to kiddieland is more accessible to the main midway. These were things proposed by the state fair to improve traffic flow."
The show continues to use international workers from South Africa under the H2B Visa program. For most of those young adults, it will be their only opportunity to see North America before returning home in the offseason, Diaz said.
Those employed by the international unit get to see some of the most beautiful country in the world during the Calgary Stampede in Alberta. Every year, North American Midway takes a group to Banff, a rustic mountain town outside Calgary.
"The kids tell us they want to work for our unit because they heard about the trip to the mountains," Diaz said.
