County Fair Hosts Neverland Ranch Ride

Ride for free this weekend in memory of pop icon

The memory of pop icon Michael Jackson is living on at the Alameda County Fair through an amusement park ride that once operated at his Neverland Ranch in Southern California.

The ride, called the Balloon Samba Ride, was one of five Neverland rides purchased by Butler Amusement in a private sale last September.

It is operating at the fair's Children Park through July 19 and Butler Amusement is offering free rides throughout the July Fourth weekend as a tribute to Jackson.

The family ride, which is for both children and adults, simulates a hot air balloon ride. It features many twists and turns and also goes up and down.
