  1. yay for tilt a whirls! I would choose either Between or Slide. My favorite memory is riding the swings for the first time. My mom wouldn't ever let me because she was afraid they would come undone and fling me across the parking lot so I was super excited the first time I got to ride.

    I'd choose Slide. :) My favorite carnival memory is when my boyfriend (now of 4 years) asked me to be with him at the top of a ferris wheel during a fireworks show. It was instant love!

    Haha, My favorite ride was always the Avalanche, and other stuff like that. My dad tells a story about me being about 6 and riding one of those flippy plane rides, where they flip you upside down, and me not wanting off til the end. :P

    I would love to win SLIDE! :)

    Favorite carnival memory... Funny, these days my best memories all involve my daughter. I love seeing the joy in her face as she has fun riding the ferris wheel, the swings, her first roller coaster ride...

    BUT since you want to know MY best memory, it would probably be my first time riding the gorilla swing at the boardwalk carnival in Wales, England. I think it was the very first carnival ride I ever went on (I was 4). In fact, it's one of my earliest memories EVER, too. That alone makes it special.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    My favorite ride is anything that spins really fast. I remember one where you stood up and ended up basically pasted against the wall. That was awesome.

  1. Slide for me!

    My favorite ride is always the octopus ride. So much fun! I took my cousin (7 years old) on it last year.

  1. Inky said...:

    I would go with Slide, as everyone seems to want! Go Slide!

    Favorite ride would have to be Fireball from the boardwalk near my house, It's this crazy ride that looks like a claw and you twirl up and around in the air. AMAZING.

  1. I would pick Slide!!!

    My favorite memory's are actually now that I am older and I love to see my kids ride the kiddy rides because they enjoy it so much!!!!

    My favorite ride is the good ole ferris wheel. Traditional, I know, but I love to see the bright lights and tiny ant size people when high above. Plus, it's slow, so my stomach likes it too. =D
    - Thanks!

  1. Unknown said...:

    I would choose Slide. My favorite ride is the ferris wheel.

  1. I would choose Shaded Vision. My favorite ride at the carnival...hmmm thats tough there are so many! i think i would have to say comicazi (totally wrong spelling) i think thats what it's called. it's the caged things that swing front to back and each time it goes higher until your totally upside down spinning in circles...either that or the tilt a whirl...

  1. oh and my email is

  1. marybelle said...:

    I'd love to read SHADED VISION thank you.

    I always loved the pony rides. Smelly, little real, fat ponies.


  1. Christina Kit. said...:

    I'd love Slide!

    My favorite ride is the ferris wheel.

    And that ties into my favorite memory - I was with my boyfriend, right before graduation and we were going to different colleges that weren't in the same city, but it was still a doable travel time for weekends together.

    When the ferris wheel stopped at the very top and all we could see was the whole of our little town below us, lights twinkling, and a carpet of stars above, he turned to me and said "We're like stars, you and I. We can be miles apart but no matter how far we are, we're still bright enough and close enough to be seen together, in the same piece of sky,from anywhere in the world. It's just four years. I'll make the sky between us feel like nothing."

    I totally fell in love with him all over again, right there, sitting above our town with everyone laughing below us.

    My fave ride was a ride called the Cage and it would flip you up and down:)

  1. I'd pick Between. My favorite ride was the ferris wheel. ♥

  1. I would say my fav part of the carnival is all the yummy food!!

    cotton candy, candied applies, popcorn...yummy

    I would choose Between.


  1. Kat C said...:

    I'd choose Slide

    My favorite thing about carnivals is all the yummy food !

  1. Angie said...:

    Slide looks amazing!!

    My favorite part of a carnival was the ship or dragon that would rock back and forth, probably because I can't handle anything else.

  1. I would love the book Between if I won, My favorite ride was the tilt awhirl also. thanks Gale

  1. I'd have to say my favorite ride is the carousel because I suffer from severe motion sickness so unfortunately that is the biggest ride my stomach can handle. It's pretty embarrassing when your six year old is going on the Twister and you have to sit it out lol. Please count me in to win Slide, thanks!!


  1. Evie said...:

    Even though I have fear of heights my favorite is the Ferris wheel.
    And I would like to win Slide.
    Thanks a lot for the chance to win it!

    I would love to win Slide!!! And my best carnival memory was riding the ferris wheel!


  1. I would want to win Slide. I think my favorite carnival ride would be the tilt a whirl. Mostly just because I am to big of a chicken to ride much else!

  1. Kate said...:

    I'd pick Between.

    my favourite thing was the cotton candy and the ferris wheel. I love being up high and getting to see everything. It's a great place to go first so then you can work out a map of which places in the carnival to go next. They are pretty confusing from the ground :P

  1. Sai Phero said...:

    I would love to win Slide :)
    My favorite memory was riding the carousel hahaha


  1. Wolfswan1 said...:

    I would love a copy of Slide- thanks!

    bethwade1 at gmail dot com

    My favorite memory of a carnival was going to one with my two best friends, Staci and Mel, when we were 14 or so. We spent hours laughing and walking around and goofing around like little kids. We didn't talk once about boys, stress, school, or parents, which was a marvelous break!

  1. I would love to win a copy of Slide.

    My favorite ride as a child was the kiddie train but that has now been replaced by the ferris wheel. I'm absolutely terrified of heights but i never seem able to resist of the sheer thrill of it!

  1. Anubha said...:

    I would love to win either Slide or Between

    My favourite rides are those that spin fast or take you high from the ground...


  1. Kylie said...:

    I get motion sick so I stick to the tame rides and I really do love the Ferris Wheel. Thank you for participating in the Event! kcarlson1152[at]

  1. I'd love to win Slide!
    My favorite ride is either the ferris wheel or bumper cars!

  1. Joy said...:

    I'd love Between. I always enjoyed the ferris wheel. Thanks.
    magic5905 at embarqmail dot com

  1. Twisty J said...:

    'Between' would be my choice. I have never been a big fan of rides, but when I think of carnivals I always think of fudge. It sounds odd, yes, but the annual carnival in my town always had THE best fudge!


  1. Thanks for the giveaway! I'd love to win Slide.

    My favourite carnival ride would be roller coasters although I also really like bumper cars.

  1. My Pick Is Shaded Vision And My Memory Would Be The First Date My Hubby And I Went On. We Went To The Kentucky State Fair And He Bought Me My First Bag Of Cotton Candy And It Was Awesome.

  1. ooops my email is

  1. Shane R. said...:

    I'd choose Slide.

    My favorite ride is the one that spins around really fast and sucks you to the sides. Those are fun.

  1. I would choose slide.
    My favorite ride was always the Gravatron. I was super sad any year it wasn't at the fair. I just love the way it pins you to the wall and it takes a lot of will power just move your hand a few inches :] Plus, it makes my tummy feel funny :P


  1. I would choose Between. My favorite carnival ride is the Tilt A'Whirl/Spinning Apples. I love carnival food, especially the caramal apples. YUM!

  1. I would love Between or Slide.
    Thanks for the giveaway

  1. maly said...:

    I would like the book SLIDE. My memorable moment was when I entered the horror house, one of the guy scaring the people tried scaring me and I accidentally hit him!XD


  1. Aik said...:

    SLIDE would be my pick. I went on a mini roller coaster when I was a kid. I ended up puking badly, but I was happy that I could summon what little bits of courage I had to go for the ride. It was definitely memorable.

  1. i dont really have a favorite ride... i am not much of a ride person. Although i do love bumper cars! :) I would choose slide.

    Terri M

  1. I would love to win a copy of Slide. :)

    My favorite carnival ride would be Space Shuttle. My first ride on it was 2 years ago and I can't believe that I conquered my fear to that ride 'coz that's one hell-of-a-roller-coaster. It's like 90 degrees when you're on top and then you'll get dropped for about the height of 2-3 stories of a building.

    Thank you for this Awesome Giveaway!

  1. My favorite ride? Any roller coaster! Love the feeling when my tummy drops!

    I am curious about Slide since so many people have requested it- but Shaded Vision is my choice!

  1. My favorite memory from the fair (we don't have carnivals) was when we were kids and my dad took us to the fair. He was in the Search and Rescue and they had a booth with a dunk tank. My sister and I got to go inside to throw the balls because we were so little. My sister was 5 or so and she didn't come anywhere near the target. The guys were all laughing and my dad said "go push it" and she did. Totally dunked the guy and shut all of the rest of them up. It was so funny.

  1. Slide please :)

    Going through the fun houses with my friends. Even now it's still fun!

  1. I would love Between.

    My favorite ride is the ferris wheel, but I do love a good scrambler

  1. I would love Between, please! My favorite is and always will be the Carousel. When I was a wee little thing they just fascinated me so much, and I still have to ride the Carousel if I come across one. Thanks for participating in this great Hop!

  1. bn100 said...:

    I would like Triple Shot. My favorite ride is the carousel. Thanks for the giveaway.


  1. Between would be my choice

    My favorite is the Ferris Wheel - seeing what seems like a million miles from the sky, seeing twinkling lights in the distance, dropping back to earth with a belly flop and doing it all over again.

  1. I would choose Slide, and I've never been to a carnival :/


  1. Alison said...:

    I would choose Between. I always like the Fun House :)


  1. Shelby said...:

    I would choose Slide. My favorite memory of a carnival is when I was little, and my parents would take me to pro baseball games, and I would ride the merry go round in the little carnival section of the statium. =) Those were the happy days. *sigh* Thanks for the giveaway!

  1. My favorite ride was the mad scrambler. I always liked the Tilt a whirl too! I would pick Shaded Vision if I won. Thank You!

  1. I'd like Between.

    I remember going to a carnival in Argentina. The ride that I rode did not strap you in. I thought I was going to fall out. It was frightening!

    Thanks for joining the hop.


  1. Teresa said...:

    I'd choose Slide!
    I remember going on a rollercoaster with my mum and I remember shrinking into the chair I was so small back then! Haha

  1. Slide for me!

    I remember being scared to death when I was 10 in a haunted house where I wasn't supposed to go. Served me right!

    aliasgirl at libero dot it

  1. I'm entering for Slide, thanks so much :)

    I remember I was on this ride once and it was one that you lay down on your stomach for. I was pretty young and my feet came off of the bar that you were supposed to keep them on and I was terrified, thinking that I would just slip right through. Thanks again!


  1. Isa said...:

    I'd like Between by Jessica Warman.

    I can't remember the name of this Carnival ride, but it was like a huge circle iron cage with no roof and it operated like a spinning top. People would go into these spaces and hold on to the bars at their sides. A fragile chain was supposed to prevent people from falling down. It would spin higher and higher into the air increasing it speed as it spun. It tilted while it spun so at times the operators would pause the machine while it was like at 90 degrees to the ground. It was an exhilarating ride though it does look scary.

    Our Carnivals weren't very safe so I haven't see them for a few years. =/

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  1. Froggy said...:


    I always liked the fun house and haunted houses.


  1. Steph said...:

    I'd LOVE to win Slide by Jill Hathaway! My favorites were always the haunted house and the scrambler.


  1. JessS said...:

    Thanks for the giveaway! My favourite memory is going to Luna Park with my little sister, one day in the school holidays a couple of years ago. It was just us and we had heaps of fun eating too much, going on all the rides (she was the one convincing me to go on the scary ones...) and taking photos on the ferris wheel (this is in Sydney so up there you had a perfect view of the harbour). Thanks!


  1. My favorite memory from a carnival is riding the big ferris wheel for the first time with my dad when I was a little girl.

    My choice is Shaded Vision. Thanks so much!

  1. tjmetz said...:

    I'd love to win Between

    My favorite ride was this one that is like a roller coaster except it is just a big circle, it was so fun, especially when they stopped you while you were upside down!

    Would like to read Slide! My favorite ride in a carnival would have to be a roller coaster where your feet dangle - totally feels dangerous! :)
