SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - When the New York State Fair opens next week, the Midway will feature 13 new rides.

In all, the Wade Shows Midway will have 62 rides, including six for thrill-seekers.

Because of requests from families, Wade also will provide at least four kiddie rides with a minimum height requirement of 32 inches for a new Kiddieland ride area, and several rides will allow parents to ride along.

Also new this year is a family ride with a spectacular view of the Fair. The Star Dancer Observation Tower will rise 100 feet in the air and slowly spin.

The Dollar Day on Labor Day promotion is back, too. Admission and all rides will cost one dollar.

The New York State Fair runs from Aug. 27 to Sept. 7.
