Since 1924, the Fligner family has been showering citizens with local meats, fresh produce, homemade baked goods, and other delectable edibles. The store boasts one of the largest custom-cut, full-service, discount meat counters in Ohio, enabling meatatarians to quench cravings with boneless beef New York–strip steaks or Dietz & Watson's gourmet meats (both $6.99 per lb.). Butchers cut meats at the time of the order, which makes the deli's 100% Ohio-raised beef as fresh as a dryer sheet stuck in the fabric of the near-distant future.
Since it began in 1893, the Cuyahoga County Fair has only missed three years: 1932, during the Great Depression, and 1942?43, during World War II. Every other year, local residents have flocked to the fairgrounds to sample the foods, ride the rides, and soak up entertainment that grows more diverse with each passing summer. Beyond a lineup of main events?such as concerts and motor-sports exhibitions?every day of the fair is an opportunity to zip along rides, see animals, and pit yourself against contests, including watermelon- and Ferris-wheel-eating competitions.
Throughout Ohio, Detroit, Michigan, and Pittsburgh, Pop Star Photo Booth livens up shindigs with photo booths that fit up to 10 adults at a time. Those picture nooks stand at 7’x6’x5’, a size that fits comfortably into most spaces. Sporting a black enclosure with red curtain, the photo booths also seamlessly blend into the motif of all environments. Photos, which are printed on photo paper, can be customized with logos and monograms; double prints are available for scrapbooking. Each booth comes with a professional attendant to ensure smooth operation, as well as props to wear while posing for the camera.
corrals five different haunted attractions onto one patch of terrifying farmland. The experience begins in the Haunted Barn, which echoes with strange noises and screams even as visitors pass through to buy their tickets. An enormous skull sits atop the barn, belching clouds of fog and staring balefully at passersby with glowing green eyes. But the skull's frightful gaze is nothing compared to the horrors that await guests beyond the haunted barn. In Crazy Clowns 3D, for example, visitors don a pair of 3D glasses and delved into a psychedelic trip through ultra-bright, horrifyingly realistic imagery. Bloody Mary's Revenge, meanwhile, features Hollywood-quality special effects; in fact, it's a replica of the Halloween attraction created for Universal Studios Orlando. In addition to gore and scares, Bloody Mary's Revenge features actor-operated, hybrid multi-motion animatronics, which, in layman's terms, translates to "people inside scary robots that come after you".
While special effects terrify and astound, they're hardly the only impressive scare on the Ranch. The classic Haunted Hayride, for instance, takes visitors through the Forest of Fear, where ghouls lurk in the fog beneath the limbs of 30-foot tall animated creatures who summon pyrotechnic fire. If visitors survive the other attractions, then all that stands between them and the exit is the Funny Fun House. This classic circus attraction has reflection-mutating mirrors, a spinning black hole tunnel, and an upside down room. Once guests have righted themselves, the attraction deposits them at the Halloween gift shop, where they'll have the opportunity to take revenge on the spooks by buying a few and forcing them to sing show tunes on the ride home.
