My experience wasn't so much the food, rides, concerts, or atmosphere at the Arizona State Fair but the Lost & Found office and Guest Services. My wife and I were visiting our son and he really wanted to see the Flaming Lips concert inside the...More

The bad thing is you can buy 200 tickets for $100 but if you have more than one kid or your with friends the games and rides that are worth going on are like 6 to 8 tickets per person even for the little kids...More
