Luehrs’ Ideal Rides will have its old favorites, plus a pair of new rides, in Morris for the Morris Firemen’s Carnival, which opens this evening.

Luehrs’ Ideal Rides has something new for the 2012 season — its Jungle Twist Coaster and Starship!

Both will be featured during the Morris Firemen's Carnival, which opens tonight, Tuesday, June 12, and continues into the weekend, at Morris Community High School.

The Jungle Twist has individual cars that spin in different directions and in different speeds as they travel around the track. The Starship uses centrifugal force to float passengers off the floor giving the feeling of weightlessness.

As always, Luehrs’ Ideal Rides offers a wide variety of kiddie rides, family rides and adult attractions. This year, the company says to be sure to climb aboard the Rower Ride. There will be thrills and chills as your entire family soars through the air on the Egyptian themed Pharaoh’s Fury Swinging Ship. Experience the rush for all on the spectacular Avalanche, or take the whole group for a race down the Super Fun Slide. The entire family can enjoy a whacky walk through the brand new Magic Maze Glass House.

All of the attractions are operated by employees that are pre-employment drug tested, undergo a national background check and are trained and uniformed. There are also full-time staff members that have received the same training as state inspectors. Safety is the No. 1 priority at Luehrs’ Ideal Rides.
