On the final day of the 2012 Nebraska State Fair, officials say looking back, one thing stood out the most.
Nebraska State Fair Board President, Jana Kruger said, "Definitely the high flying fun, the skytram. We started off with so much, with the accident and all that and we were never sure it was going to go and when we opened opening day with the skytram, it was huge and it's continued to be a big attraction every day of the fair!"
While the skytram represented all aerial activity, fairgoers on foot were very happy with some animal guests.
"The sea lions were very popular," said Kruger, "the wolf display was very educational and so were the bengal tigers."
Cathy Matschiner, a fairgoer from Lincoln said, "I think the petting zoo was especially fun. It's just lot's of different animals. I thought the wolves were great!"
As the State Fair comes to a close, some fairgoers voiced their concerns on how to make the fair better for next year.
"Bigger animals, yeah, more exotic animals," said Matschiner.
Fellow fairgoer and Lincoln native, Anne Alcalde was concerned with rest areas, "I'd like to see maybe more sitting areas with more shade."
But, for the most part, they say they were happy with their fair experience.
"Everything was great, it's like clean it's fun, it's spread out. It's great." said Matschiner. "I mean, I miss it in Lincoln, but it was worth the drive."
So, what's in store for next year?
"We're always planning for the future already," said Kruger. "We meet everyday as a board and talk about what happened the day before and look forward to the next day and we're already talking about next year and what we want to do and how to make it bigger and better. We're always looking for something you can't get anywhere else."
