Demolition Derby
July 8
 2:00 p.m. 


If you've never been to a demolition derby it is a fun, fast-paced event.  It has been compared to legalized road rage!  The goal is to immobilize your opponent's car by any means necessary within the rules of course, and yes, there are rules!

The competitors can have easily over 100 hours into building their car, hoping to last the 10-15 minutes each round takes.  The ultimate goal is to be the last car moving.

It is a loud, hot, dirty and crazy event so please keep this in mind if you have small children.

Don't miss this smash'em, crash'em event!

A Look at the Rides from



There's a new family-friendly roller-coaster this year called the Wacky Cowboy that's expected to be very popular. The coaster is 92-feet wide and has a height of 22-feet -- so it's great for all ages. It's full of LEDs, a fancy lighting package, and the colorful cars and colorful scenery.

martian maze

the Martian Maze lets children climb ladders, cross bridges, slide down slides and walk through a rotating barrel.

Fun Slide

On the fun slide, also known as the astroglide slide, or cascade slide, a rider walks up the stairs to get to the top of this slide along with a mat. The rider places the mat on the slide, sits on the mat, and slides down the ride.


The Zipper flips riders in multiple directions as each of the free spinning cages rounds each ends of the boom.

bumper cars

Bumper cars is a type of flat ride consisting of several small electrically powered cars which draw power from the floor and/or ceiling, and which are turned on and off remotely by an operator


The Up Up and Away Balloon Race is a fun, colorful ride for children and their parents. Children can spin their tubs as they race around the sky going up and down and twirling all around.

frog hopper

The frog hopper fairground ride is a kind of vertical ascent and bounced descent amusement ride and it provides a single restraint system for all riders.


The DIZZY DRAGON grins with delight as he 'opens up' to welcome kids and parents alike for a gentle ride. Four of these happy dragons turn in unison, carrying customers around and around. With their bright colors and amusing faces, these dragons are sure to please!

Chugging around a circular track, the RIO GRANDE TRAIN is the perfect rail trip for young patrons and their parents.
