    Fried butter is actually delicious. Turkey legs are delicious and not rubbery. Buffalo chicken in flapjacks are amazing. Fried bubblegum is really flavored marshmallow. Bring lot of water bottles.

    Had all the fried food you can handle? Enjoyed all the bumpy rides you can stomach? Head over to the Museum of Nature & Science where entry to each building is just $1.50. IMAX films are just $5.

    Sweets: Fried cookie dough was over rated! Go for the fried Pumpkin Pie or fried Pineapple Upside Down cake!

    The fried beer is nasty. The dough is too salty and the beer is hot and flat. Buy it, if you must, keeping in mind that it's only worth getting for the novelty. You won't eat it all.
