A towering tradition of Butler Amusements, the majestic Giant Wheel dominates the Midway day and night, offering patrons a sweeping view from a height of nearly 100 feet! Passengers are seated in separate gondolas and then whisked smoothly up, around and down again, a motion reminiscent of the ferris wheel. The Giant Wheel is a pleasant ride for the entire family.
Not for the faint-hearted. Riders are taken for a 70 mph ‘spin’ at the ends of a whirling arm that takes them 120 ft. in the air and sends them hurtling towards earth in an arc generating forces 3 times the pull of gravity. Features upside-down free-flipping action
The brand new A.R.M Vertigo towers over the midway at 100 feet in height and seats twenty-four passengers. Each seat holds two riders who are secured by a lap restraint. Once the ride begins, the entire center twists in a circular motion. Riders enjoy a swinging sensation as the entire center track lifts up slowly until reaching the top of the ride. Once the swing ride reaches the top it begins to slowly swing in a descent.
Our European 1001 Nachts ride is a spectacular bright ride on the midway and is a thrill to fairgoers. It is a platform ride that goes completely up and over in a circular fashion as riders leave their stomach behind. This colorful attraction is also energy efficient as it has been equipped with state-of-the art LED bulbs
Spinning Roller Coaster
The Giant Pole Position Spinning Roller Coaster is a world class coaster is composed of three levels, with the very top measuring 55 feet high. This is not an ordinary coaster. Riders hold on tight while the car gently climbs to the very top, after a moment of anticipation riders experience a free fall while the car itself actually spins while maneuvering along the track. A superior coaster experience!
The Inversion features a tripod of passenger seats which can hold a total of 12 passengers. The main arm of the ride swings side to side like a pendulum then swings to invert passengers completely around and upside down. The inversion can reach a height of nearly 80 feet.
This fast paced thrill ride holds two passengers per car. Secured by a lap bar the ride spins and the main arm raises the center of the wheel creating a unique undulating sensation for each of the cars.
Buckle your seat belts; this is going to be one crazy train ride! Passengers board the CrazyTrain, two to a seat, and after the doors close, the train begins to move down the track. But this is no ordinary train ride as suddenly, the entire track starts to revolve! The train continues on, upside down and then just as it recovers, the track continues revolving. As exciting to watch as it is to ride, the Crazy Train guarantees excitement.
The Zipper has been one of the Midway’s most recognizable attractions for years, providing thrills to riders from teens to adults. There’s more spinning going on with the Zipper than an out of control top. While the ‘cages’ holding two passengers each rise and descend on a tower boom, each spins independently and the entire boom turns, too. Three times the action, backed by spectacular lighting bringing them back for more.
The German Wave Swinger is a work of art, combining the traditional swing ride with lavish, hand painted scenery. The Wave Swinger lifts riders slowly from the platform and then proceeds to take them on a leisurely ride, tilting one way and another to add to the excitement. Its unusual size, unforgettable scenery, lights, music and ride make the Wave Swinger a Butler Amusements classic
You won’t have to make the trek to the snowy slopes of the Swiss Alps to experience the rush of a toboggan ride. See the fair in a blur as the fabulous Himalaya takes you on a fast, up-down-around trip faster and faster, then backward too.
