Our Main Attractions – world-class Rides, Fun Games and great food by Modern Midways
The rides shown below are the rides from the “Official Carnival of The Space Coast State Fair – Modern Midways Inc. , one of the best complete carnivals in America. There will be a terrific selection of 30-35 of these rides at the Space Coast State Fair.
In previous years, we have enjoyed 25-30 rides at the Space Coast State Fair, so this will be an exciting increase of the number and variety of fine, mechanical rides that you may enjoy at the Space Coast State Fair.
Our Century Giant Wheel is one of the focal points of our midway and gives riders a bird’s eye view of the midway and surrounding area. Each of the gondolas seat 4-6 passengers and stands over 90 ft. tall. At night, the wheel lights up, with thousands of multi-color computer controlled LED lights for a spectacular light show that can be seen from miles away.
This super-spectacular attraction will soar riders to new heights of fun! As the swings begin to rotate and increase speed, they ascend to the top of the tower. At over 100 feet tall, the Vertigo towers over the midway and is one of the tallest rides of its kind to travel in the U.S.
The Hyper Loop has 16 seats on a giant pendulum that swings back and forth. The pendulum has an enormous amplitude and can swing up to the range of 130 degrees on each side. In addition, the seats rotate around the pendulum axis. G-force can reach 1.5 do 2.5G. At night, the Hyper Loop comes alive with an awesome LED light show, strobe lights with high energy popular music.
The Fire Ball is a high speed looping roller coaster that takes riders 60ft in the air! Riders are seated in open air cars and secured with a over-the-shoulder safety harness and seat belt.
The Himalaya is an exciting thrill ride that spins at 11.5 RPM for exciting big-ride action at a speed which thrills everyone. At night the Himalaya comes alive with over 5,000 LED lights, smoke, strobe lights and high powered music.
The Scooter, commonly referred to as the Bumper Cars or Dodgem, is a family favorite on the Big Rock Midway. Drivers are able to ride around an arena and crash into their friends without any damage or driving tickets!
A classic thrill ride for the extreme thrillseekers! This ride flips, rocks and rolls riders through the sky!
The Sizzler is a classic thrill ride that features three spindles with four vehicles on each. As the center of the ride begins to spin, the spindles also rotate giving riders a sizzling experience!
The Sky Wheel is a super spectacular ride that is rarely seen on carnival midways in present day. The Sky Wheel features two ferris wheels attached to opposite ends of a large boom that rotates in the air. Many traveling carnivals no longer operate a Sky Wheel due to transportation and maintenance costs. Big Rock Amusements is proud to present the ONLY ride of it’s kind to feature a state of the art LED lightshow in America.
The Tilt-A-Whirl™ is a large segmented undulating spinning platform with 7 vehicles spread over the surface. Each vehicle spins on its own axis and depending on the weight location of each guest every thrilling ride is unique.
Wacky Worm Coaster
Our new Wacky Worm is a family-friendly roller coaster for families and riders or all ages! Exciting enough for the teens but still enjoyable for the less experienced thrill seekers who wish to ride with mom and dad!
This giant swing ride lifts passengers up off the ground, then swings them out over the crowds. All while tilting slightly at full speed to give a thrilling “wave” effect while riding.
The Sea Ray is a spectacular giant swinging ship that swings riders back and forth up to 50′ in the air.
Our Kiddie Rides
Rides and Games by Modern Midways.
Our Grand Carousel is one of the most spectacular and detailed portable carousels in the United States. The Grand Carousel features hand crafted horses and mythical creatures, decorated with jewels and beads. For those who do not wish to climb up on a saddle, there are two chariots for you to ride on as well.
The Bear Affair is a great family ride in which riders can control the spin of their bear using a giant turn table in the middle of the vehicle. Each bear is spacious enough to accommodate a family of 4 with ease.
The Dragon Wagon is arguably one of the most popular kiddie rides on the Big Rock midway. Kids love our friendly dragon themed roller coaster which features dips and hills that are just the right size for the little ones!
Riders ascend upward and are dropped back down in a hopping motion!
Our Fun Slide isn’t an ordinary playground slide. Our slide is over 90′ long and has three lanes so that riders can race to the finish.
