INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Car lovers, get revved up for a visit to the Indiana State Fair!

In addition to traditional favorites like food, concerts, and midway rides, this year’s fair is filled with experiences dedicated to Fun at the Speed of Summer — Celebrating Indiana’s Automotive Excellence.

Must-see auto attractions include:

The new exhibit World of Speed will be open daily. Fans can check out some “celebrity cars,” including the original Batmobile, the Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine, and the Ghostbusters Ectomobile.

The Indiana Automobile Exhibit, presented in partnership with the Indiana Automotive Collective, will feature a collection of classic, early 20th-century cars with roots in the Hoosier State.

Fairgoers with a need for speed won’t want to miss the SPEED: Science in Motion Exhibit. This hands-on experience will use simulations to test peripheral vision, reaction speed, coordination, concentration, and heart rate under stress.
