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 Wolves Of The World Show

Making a special appearance at the Space Coast State Fair is “The Wolves of the World Show,” which is the only traveling wolf pack in the world.

The most unique show on the road today, the show presents the mystical enigmatic wolf-a whole pack in fact, performing right before your eyes.

The Sandlofer family explains the history of wolves and recounts the story of how these rescued wolves are raised in captivity and display the traits of the wolf packs, including the alpha male and female and how they interact.

The show even features a hero wolf, who saved a young girl from drowning, showing the wolves to be intelligent empathetic animals. Sharon has trained the fiercely independent animals to perform before audiences, a feat rarely accomplished in a touring show.

Audience members sometimes drive for hours to see the wolves perform live. This is a show unlike any other. At the conclusion of the show, audience members are invited into the wolves’ habitat where they actually have the chance to watch the wolves being fed. This is a show your guests will never forget.

Shows every day of the fair. See Schedule for show times.
