So, you've purchased Friday's $20 all-day ride bracelet at the Durham Fair and the clouds are moving in fast.
What's worse is you've also decided to pay the extra $10 for unlimited rides on the new Super Coaster.
Well, what happens if it rains?
We've heard readers ask the question so we went looking for answers and here's what we found out:
There are NO refunds given for ride bracelets bought in advance of the fair. Similarly, there are NO additional ride ticket discounts provided to anyone who purchased a ride bracelet.
But, if it does rain, it doesn't necessarily mean that rides will be shut down.
"We can run it to a certain point in the rain," said David Bertozzi, Rockwell Amusements' Midway manager. "If it's a torrential downpour it's not going to run because then all the brakes get wet and it just becomes a safety problem.
"The whole thing is based on safety. Anything on this equipment is a judgement call by the guys who run it."
Bertozzi was talking specifically about the new Super Coaster but said other rides with rubber wheels are the first rides to be shut down.
"The air driven rides will run [in the rain] if you want to get on it. The whole thing is based on safety. Anything on this equipment is a judgement call by the guys who run it," he said.
A light drizzle should not impact rides, according to Bertozzi.
Bertozzi also said the length and patience of the riders of the Super Coaster could also have an impact on whether or not the ride is shut down in rain.
"We'll work with the people. If they're willing to put two people on then we'll run it a little longer but if I get bombarded with people that want to ride it four at a time, I can't do it because now it becomes a safety issue," he said.
