Traders Village in Grand Prairie is “America’s #1 Marketplace” featuring more than 3,500 vendors selling their products every Saturday and Sunday, year-round. More than 3.5 million visitors a year are attracted to the 161-acre site which also offers family friendly rides, arcade games and a wide variety of state fair style foods.
There are three new rides coming to Traders Village:
1. Village Vortex
Village Vortex is the first of the three new rides to go in this year. The giant looping coaster races riders 360 degrees around the track and then stops momentarily while they’re stranded upside down seven stories off the ground. This ride is guaranteed to leave you with a screaming good time.
Next up on the new rides is the YOYO! The YOYO dangles riders, not upside down, but in swings and drives them around and around. It uses centrifugal force to create a circle 73 feet in diameter, and the ride’s arms tilt 10 degrees creating a high-flying experience.
Wipeout is the last of the three new rides to go in this year. The Wipeout is still in the making and will be coming soon to Traders Village. This ride is for the thrill-seekers, who will be strapped into a two-passenger seat to feel as if you are riding the waves with the spinning and tilting of the ride.
Festivals & Special Events
Besides the great shopping, there’s always something fun happening at the market. Festivals, live concerts, and food events are planned year-round.
