Dozens of people line up for some of the biggest attractions at MontanaFair

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

The 2018 MontanaFair is underway right now. There are some new rides that debuted tonight such as Star Tower. Star Tower has never before been in the U.S. until now.

There have been huge lines for some of the biggest rides at MontanaFair. One of the biggest attractions this year is the new ride called "Black Out".

KULR-8 spoke with Candice Skavlind who talked about what her experience was like riding. She also said this didn't happen by chance, she actually lost a bet to her son and went on it!

"It was amazing. I love that ride. It doesn't make me sick like the zipper and it's amazing. You can see everything."

KULR-8 also spoke with Sharee Leuenberger who said the games are a lot of fun here at MontanaFair. She and her family are just starting their night at the fair, but said the games are a great area to try when you have toddlers not old enough for many of the rides.

"Ever since I was a little kid, I came to the fair and so now we get to bring our children and just have a little fun," Leuenberger said.

If you skipped the day to avoid the heat, now would be a great time to hit up the fair as temperatures are cooling down. Plus, MontanaFair looks great in the night time!
