Do you go?
I went a couple of times in the 70's and once in the 90's with a friend and her 11-year old son. I don't do well with crowds, or heat, or hyper-excited kids.
I've been to the Marcus Amphitheater a number of times for concerts. I'm OK with that. It's just all the people, people, PEOPLE at Summerfest that drives me nuts.
When I was there in the 90's, I somehow ended up agreeing to a ride on The Zipper. I must've been out of my mind. As the attendant locked me and my friend in, he said nothing about my glasses or the camera dangling from my neck. As soon as the ride started, both were airborne, slamming around against the inside of the cage. I shut my eyes and prayed. After it ended and I was off of the ride, I had to sit down for a few minutes. Just one more reson for me to stay away. And I can't afford it, anyway.
