Midway of Family Fun

Butler Amusements

Thrills, chills, and a whole lot of family fun can be found at the Merced County Spring Fair as Butler Amusements showcases an array of popular rides on the Midway.

Backdraft Giant Roller Coaster

When it comes to spectacular rides, the biggest and best is the Backdraft Giant Roller Coaster. If you are a roller coaster enthusiast, this fire-themed coaster boasts seven cars, which light up and hold up to four passengers each.

Coaster cars gently climb up three levels before rushing down and around. The Backdraft Coaster send riders on a thrilling trip over the tracks, curving, rising, and descending - a journey for the bravest.


Kamikaze is another favorite at the fair. Riders load into cockpits side by side. Then, two huge arms holding the gondolas begin to swing back and forth, slowly at first, then gaining speed to rise higher and higher until both cockpits pass each other midair before falling back to earth. For passengers seeing the ground and sky speeding past, its an unforgettable trill ride, designed especially for teens and young adults.

Wacky Worm

This two-level family roller coaster is a great way for the entire family to enjoy the carnival. This brightly-painted worm, surrounded by flower cup lights, is a charming addition to the Midway.

Other Rides

Rides that have recently joined the carnival include the Orient Express, Evolution, First Squadron, Mardi Gras Funhouse, and the Cyclone!

In total, there will be more than 25 rides, including some great attractions built specifically for the whole family - such as the Grand Carousel, the Dizzy Dragon, and the Giant Wheel.
