Carnival

Butler Amusements is introducing an exciting new way to enjoy the carnival at the 2018 Dixon May Fair.

 

Customers have the option of purchasing smart cards at our ticket boxes or at our self serve kiosks.

  1. Choose the ticket package you want, pay using  cash, credit or debit, receive a smart card with all of your tickets
  2. Keep your receipt in a safe place, and use the smart card to ride rides AND play games
  3. You can refill your smart card at any ticket box or self serve kiosk. You can also track where you used your tickets and check your balance

 

Unlimited ride wristbands still work as they always have: Purchase at a Carnival Ticket Box (keep your receipt in a safe place) and ride all the ride you want that day.

Super Shot Drop Tower

The world-class Super Shot Drop Tower is unlike any other ride on our midway.12 passengers are loaded into each circular passenger station. Over the shoulder harnesses secure patrons while they are gently lifted up the 90 foot tower. Once the passenger station reaches the top, it is released in an accelerated freefall and riders experience G-Forces in excess of 3½ times normal. Riders are then cushioned by a magnetic braking system stopping the station before it reaches the base of the tower. The Super Shot is an exciting spectacular feature on the Butler midway.

Footloose

Thrill-seekers have touted this ride as one of the Midway’s “craziest!” On the Footloose the ride’s two gigantic arms loop counter-clockwise to each other, turning completely upside down. Riders are secured by over the shoulder harnesses while their legs dangle free in the open air. This ride is sure to thrill even the bravest of riders.

Happy Swing

This porch style bench swing is a super-sized version of the original. Perfect for first time riders, this slow swing moves to and fro at just the right pace. A favorite for kids measuring 36” to 54” tall.
