Carnival Rides

Mini Ferris Wheel

The ultimate classic fair ride, now available in a smaller, mobile version to travel to your event or festival!
Tubs Of Fun
This ride is a MUST HAVE for any block party or festival event. The “Tubs Of Fun” are similar to the classic “Tea Cup” ride, and features 6 tubs seats (3 children or 2 adults each). You can spin fast, slow or not at all (the spin speed per tub is totally operated by the riders) and still have a blast.  This is a crowd favorite!
The Ballistic Swing

Guests at your event will ‘go’ ballistic when they experience the Ballistic! A large scale swing ride, it’s super fast and riders get almost completely horizontal as they swing around and around. For both child and adult riders, this carnival style swing ride accommodates up to 3 passengers per seat. Add this event entertainment that will impress even the most seasoned of thrill seekers!

The Wizzer is a rider propelled, spinning carnival ride. Two to four participants sit across from each other, grab the handles in front of their seats and pump back and forth. The faster they pump, the faster the Wizzer spins!
Gyroscope Pirate's Revenge

Get aboard the Pirates Revenge for a journey across the seas! This swinging pirate ship carnival ride can take up to 12 people at a time on this classic – and wild – ride.
