The Tyler County fairgrounds is a location in the Forest region of Appalachia in 2102.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

A staple of Tyler County, the expansive fairgrounds were filled with attractions shortly before the Great War hit. These attractions included a 100 foot tall Ferris wheel, a classic carousel, a spinning ride known as the Rocket Whirl, and many sideshows which offered a variety of prizes to be won.[2]

Layout[edit | edit source]

The Tyler County fairgrounds is a large grassy area near the Tyler County dirt track where a fair has been set up in preparation for a Halloween celebration that never took place. There are many rides, sideshow attractions, and concession stands to be found around the location.

The rides at the park include Rally Rollers (a carousel with cars), the Rocket Whirl (an aerial carousel with cars in the shape of Nuka-Cola bottles), a traditional carousel, and a Ferris wheel. The sideshows have names like Jar Toss (the roof of which is inhabited by Liebowitz), Hole in One, Nothing But Net and Bandit Roundup. There are also traditional arcade games such as Atomic Rollers, Red Menace, Whack-a-Commie and Hoop Shots.

The prize booth is located on the western side of the fairgrounds near the Bandit Roundup booth and contains several toys. However, the largest attraction at the fair is a stand in the shape of a giant Nuka-Cola bottle found in the center of the grounds. Inside the stand are free Nuka-Cola samples as well as a first aid box. Approximately 30 mason jars can be found at the "Jar Toss" booth.

There is a cooking station in the Funnel Fun concession stand. A shed in the makeshift parking lot to the west has a sign advertising the "Tyler County Scare!" Inside is a tinker's workbench and Halloween display, complete with pumpkins, candy, and orange and black decorations.

    "All the fun of the fair" has been replaced by "all the salivating horror of the Scorched." This large area of rusting fairgrounds is a great place to find uncommon items and search for health as you secure the nearby Tyler County Dirt Track (Public Workshop). Don't overlook the mechanic's warehouse either—a must-visit if you're a fan of pumpkin displays."
